Tessa Campbell Fraser On Display at Chilstone!
Tuesday, July 12, 2016
Our Fordcombe show garden is currently home to some outstanding sculptures from many talented artists including David Meredith and Seb Wylder as part of our Sculpture Exhibition. Amongst all these great works looms a huge bronze resin Highland Cow and Calf by Tessa Campbell Fraser. The eyes of the mother cow are so lifelike that they draw you towards it as she stands protectively over her young. The detail is spectacular on such a large scale that you feel like it might actually move! It completely captures the spirit of the animal from the way it stands, to its facial features. It is not to missed and only on display in our show gardens for a limited time.
Tessa Campbell Fraser has a huge interest in animals and anatomy which led her to focus on sculpting. She has completed several major bronze commissions, including a group of life-size guinea fowl, three half life-size elephants, a life-size Highland Stag and three life-size hippos. Her paintings and bronzes are held in private collections including those of Her Majesty the Queen, HRH Prince Fahd Salman, the Household Cavalry and Knuthenborg Safari Park, Denmark, as well as in Australia, South Africa, Monaco and the USA.
Tessa Campbell Fraser's work is also on display at the See Art Gallery in the Pantiles in Tunbridge Wells, with events throughout the summer.
