I've never really been big into sculpture but NM had been going on about this place he'd been to a while ago, the Cass Sculpture Foundation and was keen to take me there. I did explain that I wasn't a culture vulture, (more of a philistine in fact) and that I thought that some of the modern sculpture I'd seen was self indulgent rubbish bought by people with more money than sense. But do you know, when I got there I rather enjoyed it.
Some of it was weird,
(I thought this piece was rather Dali-esque)
.......and some of it was futuristic,
Some of it gave me the creeps,
(These sculptures reminded me of those monsters that walked out of the sea in Dr Who.)
and some of it, I thought was ghastly!
Here are my best bits....
Oval, Peg and Penis...a snip at £2200 each!
The al fresco facilities were a delight!
I Miss You (or as renamed by me, the Marmite Jar) £65000
These were my favourite, I love the ever changing colours and reflections.
I longed to drape myself over the sculptures (a la Helga) for you, but alas frolicking was not permitted.
Viewing sculptures was a totally new experience for me and a thought provoking one at that, one that I didn't expect to particularly enjoy but am pleased to report that I did. On our return we even found art in the car park!
