On January 11, 2017, renowned sculptor Jill Berelowitz will unveil her new piece, Moving Forward, on Park Lane in London.
London, United Kingdom – January 11, 2017: A significant addition to Park Lane will be unveiled later this month with the installation of a new contemporary outdoor sculpture by renowned artist Jill Berelowitz.
The sculpture, Moving Forward, will be installed on Wednesday, January 11, 2017, on Park Lane in Mayfair, London, opposite the Dorchester Hotel. The sculpture will be integrated with the surrounding environment and architecture to create a dramatic outdoor art experience.
Sculpted by Jill Berelowitz and cast in bronze, the Moving Forward sculpture combines varying numbers of sleek human forms. There are several different compositions of the sculpture using only two figures, but this particular piece of work is unique in the fact that it contains nine figures. Each of the numbers within the sculpture is cast individually, with no two alike and their gender implied through their shapes. The relationships between each of the figures are hinted, enabling the viewer the opportunity to perceive the dynamics of the sculpture in their way.
“Moving Forward is both an inner and outer journey,” explained Jill Berelowitz, when asked about her new sculpture. “It is both an original resolution and a movement. It gives us the opportunity to glimpse ourselves from another’s perspective. This gathering of nine is a visual representation of the archetype of gestation and rebirth. It invokes intrinsic pathways within each of us and reminds us of the global momentum as we all participate in birthing a new humanity.”
Jill Berelowitz is a native to South Africa, where she studied sculpture under Finnish artist Karen Jarozynska and at the Johannesburg School of Art. Since moving to London 30 years ago, Berelowitz has made an odd name for herself as one of the capital’s most innovative sculptors. She is known for her work with bronze, steel, and optical resin.
Berelowitz’ work has exhibited at places including Sotheby’s, Heathrow Terminal 5, Cork Street and the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. Her high-profile commissions include “Diving Girl,” which installed at the entrance to the Olympic Village for the London 2012 Summer Olympics and the permanent installation Core Femme outside the Charing Cross Hospital.
One of her most established sculptures, the Mind’s Eye Tree was unveiled at Shakespeare’s New Place at Stratford-upon-Avon in late Summer 2016 to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death. Cast in bronze at Morris Singer Bronze Foundry, the sculpture towers at the height of 5.5 meters and weighs approximately 3 tons.
