I’m not sure if it’s coming from Castleford (home of Henry Moore) or just an innate love or decent art but my goodness I love a trip to Yorkshire Sculpture Park (YSP), it always has something good installed and this visit was no exception.
Not Vital had a great series of artworks across 3 rooms in a new extension to the indoor exhibition space. We then went over to Ai Weiwei to see his tree sculpture “Iron Tree” which is a truly complex and labour intensive piece of art and therefore dam good art.
We saw other things but that was the highlights…Photos below, enjoy!
When ever possible we try and visit “Aunty Olive”. I’m only doing speech marks around Aunty Olive as I’m sure there is a degree of separation from that title and Mairi (so she’s Mairi’s mum’s Aunty) but she’s awesome so we just say she’s Aunty and live with it.
Just as Autumn started to kick in we met up with Carol and Twinkle (so named for his job in lighting tech), with thier two kids and went for a wonder around the Yorkshire Sculpture Park (or YSP if you prefer). We had a great time, Hazel the young girl of the group wanted cake towards the end of the day but this is not anything new!
As normal my Nikon D3000 came for the ride and I took some photos of lots of great stuff including Henry Moore bronze pieces.
