Brenda Naylor

A fortnight ago I braved TfL's ghastly Underground to attend the private viewing of The Armed Forces Art Society 75th Exhibition at the Mall Galleries in London. I was impressed by the beautiful sculptures created by Brenda Naylor, who specialises in statuettes of dancers. With the artist's permission, I've used two of the photos from her website (title link). On the left is Andrea Tredinnick in 'Serenade', Birmingham Royal Ballet; and on the right is Benito Marcelino in 'Scheherazade', Stuttgart Ballet. As this combined graphic illustrates, Brenda not only captures the elegance of dance, but also its passion. The green effect isn't paint, but the result of a chemical treatment plus heat to permanently colour the bronze.
