Petley Jones Gallery presents Blake Ward: The Space Within
September 27 – Oct 18, 2018

Blake Ward’s works from his Spirits Collection expand on the techniques of figurative sculpture developed in antiquity. Challenging established norms, these sculptures illustrate Ward’s contrarian approach presenting the contemporary figure by revealing the interior space of the human form thus evoking a dialogue between the conscious and the unconscious.  Holding fast to his love of the human figure, Ward leads us toward self-discovery.
