The pictures taken in the Hepworth Garden were of complete sculptures. But it was Hepworth’s wish that the viewer should get close to the work, walk around it, approach it from different angles, explore the textures and contours within contours. Recall her words: ‘Everything I make is to touch.’
The images below are details from larger sculptures. They explore texture, colour and line. Indeed, several of these pictures create superb, free-standing abstract compositions in their own right.
