Bruce Denny is an Englishmen trying to get people to think about how we interact. His first exhibition “Humanity” stripped back the pretense of societ showcasing his figures moulded from clay and cast in Bronze. Now with his second exhibition “Interaction” he’s taking it a step further, posing his sculptures in groups and pairs to see how that stripped back person, devoid of armour, might interact with others in the same situation.
Bruce uses fitness and fashion models to find the figures that he prefers to sculpt rather than the traditional life drawing model. He then works from photographs to sculpt the figures before finally creating them in bronze. They have a very natural look about their poses and looks. It would be quite haunting to see them all in a room interacting.
The exhibition runs for most of October in London.
