Couple of gentlemen shooting the breeze at Priory Bay hotel on the Isle of Wight. Couple of statues communicating well not so sure, but liked the natural poses here. Shame about the weather and for one of them those darn Gulls 🙂
Lawrence Holofcener’s first exhibition was in 1979 at the Gibbes Museum of Art in Charleston, South Carolina. It was followed by many shows, awards and commissions. During his exhibition at AT&T’s Education Center in Princeton, New Jersey, Lawrence produced The Box, a piece which was added to their collection.
In 1985 at the Chichester Festival Theatre, Laurence Olivier unveiled Holofcener’s portrait, “Faces of Olivier”, and ten years later to the day on Bond Street in London, Princess Margaret unveiled his portraits of Winston Churchill and Franklin Roosevelt.”Allies” has fast become one of London’s tourist attractions. Commissions include Queen Victoria for the Isle of Wight’s Museum of Island History and Coburg, Germany, as well as a life-size bronze of Thomas Paine at Bordentown, New Jersey.
Other life-size portraits of Thomas Chatterton, William Tyndale and William Penn are in Bristol, England. In 1998, Holofcener embarked on a major series celebrating the contributions made by 20th Century icons, among them Albert Einstein, John F Kennedy, Mother Teresa, Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela, Frank Sinatra, Muhammad Ali, Mahatma Gandhi, Anne Frank, Eleanor Roosevelt, Leonard Bernstein, Albert Schweitzer, the Three Tenors and John Lennon.
