Biography / CV of Sally Arnup

Sally Arnup`s Biography
I first met Sally at the Royal College of Art, Sculpture School in 1956. After two years National Service, I arrived there desperate to pick up where I had left off, before those most interesting army experiences. I wanted to get on with the business of making sculpture. I relished the atmosphere that prevailed at the College then, under the leadership of John Skeaping. Sally was a fellow student, one of a group who had already made serious decisions about their preferred subject matter and mode of working. This stance I admired because my two years away from any art school atmosphere had helped me to make the same kind of decision. Curiously, despite the art world being in a state of flux and confusion, we both made the choice of working directly from the world as we saw and experienced it. In Sally`s case her decision was to make sculpting the animal world her primary subject, and soon after the RCA, was to become firmly established as our leading animalier, with a growing national and international reputation sculptig animal portraits.

Artist Statement of Sally Arnup

The use of bronze means that the extremes of scale and mass can be explored, and some of the movements, caught from life, are technical tours de force in the medium. The fine surface detail made possible by the use of bronze adds to our perception of the subjects shape and mass and builds the individual identity of each animal.
