Object of the Week – Clare Trenchard, ‘The Minstrels – Banjo’


Bronze, edition of 7
H: 190cm   W:81cm

Clare Trenchard (born UK, 1956) has exhibited widely in the UK and overseas. Her work captures the strength, power and movement of animals and adds a quirky twist, in this case the hare is depicted as a banjo-playing minstrel. Trenchard’s sculptures are modelled in clay, plaster or wax and cast in bronze. The works in the energetic Minstrel series are so full of life and character that it is hard not to be engaged and enchanted.
