This exhibition launched Michael's iron sculptures to the public for the very first time and also showcased his development experimenting with different approaches and media in his portrait paintings.
The fifteen iron sculptures exhibited were formed from unusual discarded pieces of iron, some over a century in age which gave them a unique patina and texture. These incredible works of art consolidated Michael's reputation not only as an outstanding artist but also as an incredibly talented sculptor.
The Works on Paper illustrated in the book: Ghislaine Howard: Drawn to Paper are shown above and are available to purchase.
This book was launched at the gallery on the exhibition pre-view evening of all 72 illustrated works and is available to purchase at £15.00. Each Work on Paper has commentary by the writer & art historian Michael Howard along with an introduction on the importance of drawing and some of the techniques Ghislaine uses in her everyday practise.
Sophie Benson, Head of Art, Manchester School of Art has also provided a valuable insight in her piece, 'Reflections on the Exhibition'.
