Following the dissolution of the influential Painters Eleven group in 1960, Walter Yarwood’s primary focus shifted from painting to sculpture. This artistic pivot between mediums marked a new creative flourishing for the artist, as he explored the new aesthetic and material possibilities of working in three dimensions.

Featuring both a manufactured and expressionistic quality, this untitled work appears as an assemblage of industrial fragments. Composed of strong and dynamic angles, the sculpture proves to be visually engaging viewed from all sides. With its rich, rusted surface, this work evokes industrial detritus from a time long passed.
