Bronze sculpture and paintings

Bronze sculpture and paintings


Artist Jim Racine graduated from the Royal College of Art, but began his career at the Colchester Institute. His show at the Minories (May 27 to June 15) is a début of bronze sculptures and painting around the concept of a new visual language called the Bird Alphabet. Jim is a master bronze caster specialized in innovative foundry techniques, and makes every sculpture personally from the beginning to the end of the process. Challenging outdoor works will appear in the Minories garden, while a special exposé of the Bird Alphabet will be held in the ballroom. This will include small bronze maquettes for exciting future projects and framed oil masterpieces.
