Faces of SculptureDame Elisabeth Frink, Sir Anthony Caro, Sir Antony Gormley and almost every leading British sculptor features in this free exhibition at The Royal Society of Sculptors. Faces of Sculpture, on Old Brompton Road from 14th May, shows the works of photographer Anne Purkiss who has taken portraits of these influential artists in their studios over the past 30 years. Damian Hirst, Grayson Perry, Cornelia Parker, Rachel Whiteread, Maggi Hambling, Phyllida Barlow, Martin Creed, Gavin Turk, Yinka Shonibare and many more have all been captured by Anne, a photo-journalist for the Associated Press. In addition, the exhibition will also feature the work of four contemporary sculptors as well as Frink's monumental sculpture, In Memoriam III, on the Sculpture Terrace outside.
