Description

Long-term supporter of Terrence Higgins Trust, Shaun Brosnan MRBS is an internationally renowned sculptor. He is a Member of the Royal British Society of Sculptors and his work is in public and private collections around the world. Brosnan uses sheet lead to make his unique works, hand beating them with hammers and traditional wooden mallets. He says: ‘I work with sheet lead because it is such a lovely sensual material. I am hugely inspired by the sculpture of ancient Greece and Rome and the way in which we are able to look at fragments of things and understand them.’ Forgotten V is a beaten sheet lead face fragment. Using sheet lead from reclaimed sources gives Brosnan’s sculptures a striking patina of age and history, adding a sense of timelessness to his remarkable figurative pieces.
