The re-creation of the human form is more than just the replication of what the eye sees:
It is the point at which art and science meet to truly understand the wonder of the human anatomy in all its complexity.
Realist, figurative sculpture has the power to stop us in our tracks and make us reflect on the human condition and our place in the world.
Andrew Sinclair MRBS is recognised as a master of world-class figurative sculpture.
His superb sense of design and composition is renowned – he captures the essence of his subjects in every commission. His sculptures are unique in their highly skilled attention to detail. This aspect of his work makes them resonate with life, adding a quality of realism rarely seen in contemporary sculpture today. His characteristic technique of sculpting some elements in high detail, then blurring others through his loose application of clay strokes has the effect of a camera lens zooming into focus, highlighting important features and drawing the viewer further in to discover more.
He was honoured to be awarded the commission for the Duke of Wellington’s Regimental Memorial Sculpture, which was unveiled by the Duke of Wellington in Halifax on Friday 17th May to great applause from the thousand-strong crowd. Andrew is delighted and proud to be part of ‘The Dukes’ history.
Celebrating the 300-year history of the Duke of Wellington’s Regiment, this important monument tells the Regiment’s story through the characters, symbols and motifs depicted within its unusual, ground-breaking design. The dynamic placement of the main figures and the narrative elements of the sculpture are designed to draw the viewer into the sculpture, creating a ‘wow’ factor that resonates on many levels.
Andrew’s life-size bronze sculpture of David Bowie was unveiled in the Market Square, Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire on 25th March 2018 to great acclaim. It was a world-wide media event, with news of the unveiling being broadcast as far away as Australia, New Zealand, the USA and Canada.
Andrew’s impressive catalogue of work graces many distinguished historical properties and public places such as the Royal Box at Ascot and Crosby Hall (Sir Thomas More’s old palace) in London, including multiple commissions for the late publisher Felix Dennis.
