Two Forms (Divided Circle)

According to Dame Barbara Hepworth, the creator of this sculpture, “the 1960s was a period of tremendous liberation. I at last had space and money and time to work on a much bigger scale. I had felt inhibited for a very long time over the scale on which I could work … it’s so natural to work large — it fits one’s body."

And no doubt the pocket as this sculpture was sold to the London Borough of Southwark in 1970 for a six figure sum. This is one of six (number 5 of 6) castings sold as ‘municipal art’ and stands in Dulwich park to this day.

My model represents this unexpectedly asymmetrical work in Meccano. Its slightly awkward quality is enhanced by the disposition of the individual elements: set at an angle to each other and stepped one slightly behind the other.
