“I have always found in all my work it is the connections, the articulation of form which has been of particular importance to me, rather than the development of sculptural mass. The endless invention in nature of bony structures from minute tiny insects and animals to colossal forms of dinosaur bones … has always fascinated me.” Bryan Kneale Kneale first trained as a painter and moved to sculpture in 1960, just after this work was made. His sculptures are abstract, but have taken inspiration from skeletons and joints of animals.
