During the 1960s, Lynn Chadwick began working with his simple and faceted figures. The artist subsequently developed his very own characteristic expression, which the offered sculpture “One Two” is a fine, and size-wise more unusual, example of. Here the man and woman are united and reduced to a kind of essence of abstract geometric shapes. Despite the weight of the matte black bronze, the sculpture appears light, resting on four thin legs. Lynn Chadwick's sculptures are often archetypes that portray the relationship between individuals, their movement, interaction, and sexuality.
