About

Canadian sculptor Douglas Bentham presents six monumental steel sculptures, executed in 1990 at the Hardingham Sculpture Workshop at Norfolk. These sculptures were Bentham's direct response to the stimulus provided by fourteen days confronted with British steel, hot days tempered by cooling rains, other sculptors' provocations and his own competitive spirit. In 'Crossing the Pond', Bentham complements the Hardingham series with six new stainless steel sculptures from his current Espalier series, shipped directly from his studio in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada.

Douglas Bentham's formative years benefited from numerous professional artists' workshops at Emma Lake, Saskatchewan, including co-leading the 1977 workshop with Sir Anthony Caro; subsequent to that experience, the British sculptor founded the Triangle Artists' Workshop, bringing together the three points of the geographical triangle: Great Britain, the United States and Canada. The Hardingham Workshop grew from its example to become a vital gathering of sculptors from around the world. This exhibition encapsulates the cross-Atlantic exchange.
