We explore the influences that shaped Gibbons’ vision, his skills and techniques, and the stylistic and cultural impact that he had on this country. The exhibition brings fresh perspective to Gibbons and shows how his bold new direction changed the landscape of British carving, sculpture and interiors. The influence of Gibbons will be traced to the present day, with works by contemporary artists and designers including Phoebe Cummings,Rebecca Stevenson and Alexander McQueen. Also showcased will be the work of the eleven finalists in the Grinling Gibbons Tercentenary Award.
