      Hepworth’s Influence

      Barbara Hepworth was one of the artists who defined the postwar generation of British artists. Her sculptures, noticeable for their smooth and flowing forms, are felt more than they are understood. As the artist puts it, "body experience is the centre of creation." Their contours, which have inspired the work of Nicola Beattie, Jonathan Page and Nils Hansen, seem human and relatable without providing any tangible explanation for it. Though visceral, Hepworth's sculptures are not born of a reliance on pure intuition over careful planning. Her drawings show an obsession with shape and form. Sabrina Brouwers, Pak Keung Wan and Briony Marshall are among the artists who continue today to ask questions about achieving flow through connecting simple forms.
