Edwina Sandys Sculpture

Through Sunday, December 15
Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens

During the last 30 years, Edwina Sandys has created art of international acclaim that includes sculpture, paintings, collage and works on paper.

Edwina was born and raised in London. In 1969 she considered standing for Parliament, which placed her squarely within her family’s tradition. Not only was her father the British Cabinet Minister, Duncan Sandys, but her grandfather was Winston Churchill. Through her richly varied life experiences, Edwina is uniquely situated to create work related to global issues of our time.

Thirty years ago, the world witnessed the fall of the Berlin Wall, and just like the rest of the world, Edwina was glued to the television, witnessing the extraordinary excitement and joy that filled the German city. Edwina traveled to Berlin in February 1990 to obtain some sizable pieces of the Wall that could be made into sculpture, which led to the creation of “Breakthrough” dedicated by President Reagan in 1990, and visited by numerous dignitaries such as Mikhail Gorbachev, Margaret Thatcher and others.

Edwina will unveil her new version of her “War & Peace” sculpture at ANSG, commemorating the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. The sculpture includes actual pieces of the Wall and awareness of the powerful intersection of history and art.
