‘Red Between’ sculptor, Phillip King worked as an assistant to Henry Moore
Phillip King’s abstract sculpture `Red Between’ has been installed in its new home in the revamped Quadrangle, behind the VG&M.
‘Red Between’ was located outside the Sydney Jones Library but was moved as part of its refurbishment.
Made from painted steel in 1971-3, `Red Between’ has recently undergone some conservation work and takes up its new residency in the archway between the Johnston and George Holt buildings.
Art historian and Guardian art critic, Norbert Lynton, said of the sculpture: ‘….Red Between would seem to be about energy, growth, a slow permanent springing of co-existing but disparate organisms. With its dark red colour, metallic and thus less skin-like than many of King’s paint surfaces, it seems to drink the light in which it stands…’
Phillip King is a British sculptor who worked as an assistant to Henry Moore, taught with Anthony Caro at Central St Martin’s and represented Britain at the Venice Biennale in 1968.
