Stephen Cox’s Cycladic Gemini at Kallos Gallery

STEPHEN COX X KALLOS GALLERY: ANCIENT STONE

1 October – 2 November

Kallos Gallery and Stephen Cox, R.A. present Ancient Stone. A collaboration inspired by the materiality of stone and featuring sculptures from antiquity alongside contemporary works.

Highlights by Stephen Cox include a maquette of Cycladic Gemini, the full-scale edition of which was most recently seen at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2018 where it had a prominent position in the Wohl Entrance Hall and McAulay Gallery. The ancient Cycladic culture flourished in the Aegean during the early Bronze age and is most recognised for its carved abstract figurines. This work continues a long tradition of Cycladic art influencing modern art; both Pablo Picasso and Henry Moore owned examples.
