David Annesley - Fire

Materials: Steel
Dimensions: 4.5m x 4.0m
Acquired: 1980

Through geometric, colourful shapes, David Annesley uses an almost painterly approach exploring relationships of form and colour. He studied under Anthony Caro in the late 50s and held teaching posts at Central St Martins throughout the 1960s.

Fire was acquired for the Orton Centre in 1980. This piece, made of painted blue steel, is now on long term loan to Burghley Sculpture Gardens. It's a large, bold work representing the liveliness of fire in a static sculpture.
