Barry Flanagan

Barry Flanagan was a sculptor who always retained an ironic attitude towards his medium, he oscillated between the abstract and the figurative, largely using lumps of quarried Hornton stone or marble to create his works. His hare sculptures, cast in bronze, are archetypal Flanagan, personified in a number of roles or settings, they seem anthropomorphic, despite their seemingly primitive representation and immense scale. Flanagan exhibited worldwide, including MOMA New York, the Royal Academy of Arts in London, and the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris.
