Geoffrey Dashwood is widely renowned for his abstracted sculptures of different breeds of bird. Talisman's exhibition of Dashwood's works at our West Country showroom showcased Dashwood's bronzes, ranging from life-sized to monumental works. His play with scale, simplification of form and the unique and signature colouring of his bronzes was displayed through the wide range of pieces featured in the exhibition.
This exhibition coincided with the installation of Dashwood's monumental Peregrine Falcon at local Port Regis School from April-November 2013. 1.6 tonnes of bronze was used to create this dramatic sculpture of the fastest creature on the planet, cast as a limited edition of 6, situated in pride of place for pupils and parents to enjoy.
Talisman joined forces with internationally acclaimed charity Tusk (www.tusk.org) for the launch of this exhibition, offering 10% from sales through the Preview weekend. Since its formation in 1990 Tusk has raised over £20m for a wide range of projects across Africa, protecting and helping to alleviate poverty through sustainable development and education programmes.
