Ursula von Rydingsvard’s long and acclaimed career centres upon her monolithic sculptures in cedar, bronze, copper, and graphite, carefully wrought and highly personal works which are best viewed undulating against the grand perspective of the sky. She has also produced smaller sculptures which evoke household objects, frames, bowls, and ladles, and more than forty of her works went on display between April 2014 and January 2015 at Yorkshire Sculpture Park, in the artist’s most extensive exhibition to date.
Several of these works continued to be displayed at Yorkshire Sculpture Park throughout 2015. The fourteen photographs above show Von Rydingsvard’s Bronze Bowl with Lace and Bowl with Mounds, in the twin settings of the park’s 500 open acres and its Camellia House. They appear alongside Ai Weiwei‘s Iron Tree and Fairytale Chairs, in and around the park’s refurbished eighteenth century chapel; Anthony Caro‘s Promenade; Peter Liversidge’s Everything is Connected; and Sophie Ryder’s Sitting.
