Just thought I'd post another of my favourite works from the exhibition curated by Phillip Treacy at Tate Liverpool.
Corinthos by Barbra Hepworth 1954/5.
The piece is one of the largest of her works to be carved from one block of wood.
Formed from guarea, a tropical hard wood, the rich outer surface is contrasted with a painted matt white interior. Inspired by her visits to Greece, the sculpture represents ancient sights and Hepworth's experiances of light and landscape.
In the gallery space, set amongst vivid pink walls, I enjoyed the experiance of viewing through and beyond it's mass. The interior of the work balances with the outer form completely. It is entriely beautiful.

Certainly a talking point, and well worth trying to visit before the close of this exhibition on 12 April 2012, Tate Liverpool has some fabulous work in their "This is Sculpture" Series.
Milliner, Phillip Treacy's display of wooden block formers are particulary stunning.
