Michael Sandle’s Monumental Rage Exhibition
May 19 - October 7
Professor Michael Sandle RA studied at Chester School of Art and is widely recognised as one of the finest sculptors in the world. He is also a brilliant draughtsman and printmaker. Chester’s Grosvenor Museum is proud to present an exhibition of his work, ‘Michael Sandle: Monumental Rage’, running from 19 May to 7 October.
Michael Sandle’s work explores the themes of violence, war, death and memorialisation, making this a particularly appropriate exhibition for the year in which we commemorate the centenary of the end of the Great War. In direct response to the horrors of our age, his art presents a powerful critique of the abuse of power in global conflict, politics and culture, and the accompanying cynicism and hypocrisy. The exhibition shows the immensely powerful work of this important artist, whose international status is unmatched in his field by any other British artist of his generation. With sculptures, drawings and prints spanning sixty years, it offers a remarkable aesthetic, intellectual and emotional experience for the museum’s visitors.
