“Art is a long word which stretches from millinary to religion.”
Kenneth Clark, July 1948.
The academic rigour of two masters’ degrees has developed my research diligence. One, with an art’s focused thesis: “Humanising the Landscape: The outdoor placement of landscape sculpture and its aesthetic impact upon the viewer” (Distinction. 2014, University of Buckingham), referenced key works by Henry Moore (1898-1986), Elisabeth Frink (1930-1993) and Antony Gormley (1950-). The other, European Management and Employment Law (1995, University of Leicester), was the foundation for a successful international business career.
My doctoral research concentrates upon the figurative creations of Modern British and European sculptors, though on a fine day in London, I may be tempted away from sculptures to play tennis.
