An exciting array of work from the artists oeuvre will be showcased on stand SR2, and a selection of Vanstones new and unseen sculptures will be on public display for the first time. We are also pleased to announce that following the Chelsea </p><p>Flower Show, our second solo exhibition of Vanstones work, Origins, will be opening in our Dover Street gallery from 4 July 16 August 2013. </p><p>Vanstone personally sources his marble from across the world to create his highly polished, intricately veined sculptures, which </p><p>strip down the human form to the essentials. Carrara Form (2012) and Sunrise (2013) intimate reclining figures reduced to a </p><p>simple curve of profile and lower limbs, whereas Tinos Torso 2 (2012) and Jade Torso (2012) develop the theme of the full length </p><p>portrait, abstracting the composition whilst investing each with a subtle yet distinctive presence. </p><p>Vanstone experiments with both form and scale. The monumental Portuguese Profiles (2013) develops a minimal double </p><p>silhouette, whilst Ripple Torso (2013) is executed on a more modest scope, the sweeping forms of the marble replicating </p><p>intricate folds of fabric. Combining both classical and contemporary influences, his work is an exciting juxtaposition of the old </p><p>and new. </p><p>Paul Vanstone has won the Certificate of Merit at the Chelsea Flower Show for the last two years. His works have been shown </p><p>in the Victoria and Albert Museum and the British Museum, and he has been commissioned for various large scale public works. </p><p>Vanstone has received several important awards, including the Darwin Scholarship, the Henry Moore Award, and the Lord and </p><p>Lady Carrington Sculpture Garden Commission. </p><p>The RHS Chelsea Flower Show will be open from 21st - 25th May 2013. Opening hours are 8am - 8pm, 21st - 24th May; and 8am </p><p>- 5.30pm, Saturday 25th May. </p><p>Opposite: Carrara Head (2009).
