Last Saturday afternoon whilst in Yorkshire I went to Bretton Hall where 45 years ago I studied art.
The college is closed now but the grounds have become a most wonderful sculpture park.
Many famous pieces of work are set in a most glorious landscape.
|There were three almost life sized figures on the wall in|
this gallery space.
I was especially interested to see the work of a Spanish sculptor called Jaume Plesna .
|These heads are carved out of huge blocks of alabaster.|
|The heads were gently lit from above.|
|There was a great feeling of peace in this space.|
The whole experience of seeing his work was just so inspirational and left me with a great sense of calm.
|Set against the autumn sky this figure had a great sense of calm, beautiful.|
|These two heads are on a huge scale|
and sit on the turf roof
of the underground galleries.
|This figure sits on a slope and gazes across the landscape.|
It is so huge that people could walk in and out and some just to stop and think.
There were moments when the work just took you in and with the landscape and a beautiful autumn day it was just perfect.
|This is a part of the path that leads to the galleries at the park.|
People were invited to pay to have names there.
It was a wonderful way to raise money and also a lasting memory
for so many families
