Already a world-leading body cast sculptor, now Louise Giblin can add international medal winner to her long list of achievements. Selected to represent the UK at the Florence Biennale, Saffron Gallery resident artist Louise joined 422 other artists from 62 countries in an exhibition of more than 1,300 works. After a long and thorough process of evaluation, Louise was delighted to be announced a winner of the International 'Lorenzo il Magnifico' Award by the international jury.
Living Legends is an exhibition of work created by body, head and hand casting celebrities, high achieving athletes and war veterans. Bronze plaques, drawings, designs and paintings will be exhibited along with the prize-winning sculptures selected by the Florence Biennale jury.
Bronze plaques and designs detailing experiences of serving and retired members of the British Military will show alongside sculptures produced by head casting Duncan Goodhew MBE, Michael Portillo, Olympian and former British Olympic Association Chairman Lord Colin Moynihan, and soul singer Reuben Richards. Body cast sculptures include ski racer and anti-landmine campaigner Heather Mills and ITV’s Dancing on Ice skater Daniel Whiston.
