The  main installation of Gormley’s work was a room filled with metal cast versions of the artist himself.  He actually made plaster molds of himself.  Then he used the molds to create metal casts.  Some casts poked horizontally from the wall.  Others hung from the ceiling; while the rest “mingled” with the visitors. Again Gormley challenged his relationship with the space around himself as well as with us. So unusual.  If you look back at Buddy’s photo you can take a closer look at one of the casts. .

Gormley’s works often explore our relationship with the space around us. .

The London Times puts it this way, “In the biggest room, viewers can stand beneath six tons of steel-reinforcing mesh suspended from the ceiling. The site-specific sculpture, Matrix III (2019), has an inner core resembling, in size and shape, a typical bedroom, a reference to the fact that half the world’s population now lives within an urban jungle or grid.” .

As I stood beneath it and saw the relationship of the small oasis to the complexity that surrounded it, it felt both overwhelming and fascinating- a parallel to life itself.  That is the strength of Gormley’s work.  He can create an abstraction that makes you feel something very familiar. .

This work by Gormley is called Mother’s Pride V.  It is made completely out of slices of bread.  Swipe. You can see how the artist used “bites” to create the “fetus”. I am so glad I saw the exhibit with a British friend.  She told me the pun continues with the title since there is a brand of bread in Britain called Mother’s Pride.  It was amazing to see how this man’s mind works! .

Gormley is very interested in space and the body’s orientation therein.  Clearing VII is an immersive ‘drawing in space’ made from 6 miles of coiled, flexible metal through which visitors find their own way.  I love how interactive some of his work is.  The viewer is enticed to become involved. .

Antony Gormley creates human forms out of block shapes.  Swipe.  Can you see the “person” crouching in the corner? .  His work fascinates me! .

Saw an incredible installation of sculpture by Antony Gormley at the Royal Academy of Arts in London.  Of course I took Buddy Bison.  He got up close and personal with the works. He couldn’t seem to get enough!  It was a fascinating exhibition!! . .

Of all the places Downton Abbey was filmed Highclere is my absolute favorite.  It is only open on bankers’ holidays (when the banks in England are closed) and for special events.  It is well worth the wait!!! It’s even more beautiful in person than on the screen!!! .

The interior of St Mary’s church in Bampton.  Do you recognize it?  It was the chapel where Lady Edith was jilted by her beloved Sir Anthony Strallan.  The visitor center had a photo of the filming of one of the outdoor scenes.  Swipe. .

This is the church in Bampton where several scenes from the TV series Downton Abbey were filmed.  The tiny and quaint visitor center has a photo of Maggie Smith outside the church. Swipe. .

Much of Downton Abbey was filmed at Highclere Castle but the little town of Bampton also offered fascinating buildings and scenery! .

The back of Highclere Castle looks very different from the front! .

Buddy Bison is excited about the new Downton Abbey movie.  It made him remember his visit to Highclere Castle in the spring of 2018. It was even prettier in person than it is on the screen!!! .
