Michael Landy RA 'Saints Alive': Studio Visit
1 October 2013
Image courtesy of the Artist and Thomas Dane Gallery. ‘These are the saints, their appearance based upon paintings in the gallery – Crivelli’s Saint Peter, say, or Cranach’s St Apollonia – meticulously recreated in plaster, fibreglass and paint. You look up to them, they tower distantly above you, powerfully real and yet blatantly artificial, which is the first jolt. And then, quite suddenly, they move.’ The Observer, 26 May 2013. As the Rootstein Hopkins artist in residence, Michael Landy RA has spent the past two years producing work that connects in some way to the National Gallery’s collection. Join us as we celebrate All Saints Day with Michael as he guides Patrons through the sculptures created by this experience for the National Gallery’s Sunley Room.
