Artist faces up to wax sculpture

A SCULPTURE entitled The Pliant Wax is Stamped With New Designs was among those on show in a new exhibition at the Patriothall Gallery in Stockbridge.

The work, by artist Karen Lyons, was examined by fellow artist Paul Furneux at a showing ahead of the public launch recently.

It is part of the latest in the "Dialogues 2010" series, which is focused on interpretations and reactions to the work of Hieronymus Bosch. The work, part of a multimedia installation based around the central head, looks at concepts of growth, and metamorphosis.
