Welsh artist Barry Flanagan was best known for his bronze sculptures of animals; in particular, hares, but also cougars, elephants and horses.

For many art critics, these iconic creations seem to be at odds with Flanagan’s earlier pieces, which saw him using materials including rope, sand, cloth and stone.

This latest exhibition of his work seeks to challenge this popular viewpoint, demonstrating that his later output does not in fact display any sort of marked shift in his approach. Instead, it represents the distillation of what was a decades-long fascination for him - with ontology, with movement and with the physicality of the various materials in which he worked.
