: Help (opus 81)
: MEADOWS, Bernard
: a polished and lacquered bronze sculpture, modelled in 1966 and cast in 1968, showing: two hard and solid shapes 'squashing' a softer rounded shape; the artist polished the bronze to maximise the metal's natural, golden colour, and used different textures to emphasise the forms; Meadows began to use abstract shapes in his sculpture to express human fear and anxiety during the mid-1960s; in this work, the 'squashed' rounded shape appears to cry for help
