Radlett artist’s exhibition in honour of Henry Moore

RADLETT artist Derek Howarth is taking part in a landmark exhibition in Harlow until August 8 featuring the work of four sculptors who worked with Henry Moore and his Foundation.

Having gained an honours degree in sculpture Derek, of Harper Lane, worked as an assistant to Henry Moore and during the ensuing years executed large projects for his mentor in polystyrene, a medium he introduced Moore to.

He also taught for some years at Norwich School of Art becoming a freelance sculptor in 1987. Since then he has run his own professional studio/workshop creating three-dimensional work for films, theatre, television and the like.

His own theme in sculpture originates from common flints found in the clay soils of Hertfordshire, themselves “castings” within the primordial rock which are formed into humanoid shapes in creative hands.

The other three sculptors taking part in the exhibition at Parndon Mill, Harlow, are John Farnham, James Copper and Malcolm Woodward.
