Two of South Africa's most acclaimed sculptors, Llewellyn Davies and Sarah Richards are exhibiting their work at The Platform Gallery in Lions River.

Richards is an established South African artist and sculptor living in KwaZulu-Natal. Her bronze sculptures can be viewed and are for sale from a variety of galleries around the country as well as the Fordoun Hotel and Spa reception on the Midlands Meander route. You can also purchase directly from Sarah. 

Her portfolio of bronze sculptures include South African animal and wildlife sculpture, bird sculpture, bronze portrait busts and bronze figurative sculpture. She will also work on a commission basis from monumental works to small coffee table sized editioned sculpture.

A sculptor inspired by the raw essences of Africa captures in bronze an era which future generations may only dream of. Having lived in the heart of the Bushveld,  he knows and understands the joy of being at one with the vast diversity of Africa. He uses wax and clay as his media by which to create the mold and believes in building up rather than removing.

Davies has a deep interest in wild life and some of his best pieces have been in this field, from various birds to the famous Kruger Park elephant Mufunyane to the beautiful sensual movement of a ballerina and the alluring fascination of Africa’s ethnic groups.

His sculptures are proudly displayed all over the world such as the Tongaat-Hulett Headquarters, Mala Mala Game reserve, Anglo American Eastern Transvaal lodge, Standard Bank, Hilton Boys College, Maritzburg College and many private collections. His sensitivity, an acutely observant eye and his talent for conveying emotion, power and movement, give his work a depth that affords lasting pleasure.

Talking about the two artists, The Platform Gallery states:We will highlight pieces from their large bodies of works, and delve into the future of these two masters as they share their personal journey.”

The Platform is situated at Lions River Station Unit 2, R103, Howick.
