At once elegant and contemporary—this sublime sculpture of a reclining figure is by Jeremy Guy. Chiselled from black granite and honed to a smooth, velvet-like finish, the subject matter is classic. Guy’s influences—the remarkable work of famed British sculptors Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore is evident in the modernist form of Guy’s pieces.
“I feel it is my role as an artist to create a pause for contemplation by embracing that which is new and highlighting the wonder of what is already there." Jeremy Guy
