Sculpture by Poppy Field Selected for the Royal Society of British Artists’ Annual Exhibition
20th January 2020
Work by QEST Finnis Scott Foundation Scholar Poppy Field has been selected from over 1,500 entries to appear alongside artworks by some of Britain’s leading artists. The Royal Society of British Artists Annual Exhibition will be on display at Mall Galleries from 20 to 29 February 2020.
Poppy is a figurative sculptor who works from the life model under natural north light, modelling in clay and casting in bronze. In parallel with commissioned sculptures, she is working on a series of life-size figures to create an empowering iconography for young women. The first figure in this series, Everything is Now, 2018 was sold at auction at the V&A Museum in March 2019, organised by the QEST, and installed in a private garden in The Chilterns. A 45cm bronze reduction of Everything is Now will feature in the RBA Annual Exhibition (edition of 10).
The Royal Society of British Artists (RBA) is dedicated to promoting the highest standards of skill, concept and draughtsmanship in painting, sculpture, printmaking and drawing. Their exhibitions include an eclectic mix of sculpture and paintings in all media.
