Sculptor, Bridget McCrum , celebrates her eightieth birthday this year, and to commemorate her sixty-four years in the business, Canary Wharf is holding an exhibition of her work at one Canada Square. Past and Present revisits McCrum's earliest stone carving at the age of sixteen all the way up to bronze sculptures made this year.

McCrum's particular subject of interest is birds, which she displays as both individual pieces and as integrated carvings in objects such as ceremonial tools and weapons. In her large scale sculptures, you will see how she depicts the characteristic actions of birds, such as hunting, flying, and singing. While naturalistic, they the sculptures are also minimalist, generally showing just the form of the animal, rather than the close-up details.

The exhibition is free to see and will be on display between the 8th September - 14th November. You can also learn more about her work by going on a free evening tour on the 28th October.
