Edwina Sandys’ Yin Yang


Internationally acclaimed artist Edwina Sandys and her husband architect Richard Kaplan recently opened their massive Soho loft for a select gathering of friends for a private vernissage of her latest work, Yin Yang, a series of silk screened images all in her favorite colors - red and white.


Female and male figures in counterpoint dominate this new series of ink on archival paper works with common items like tulips (which she adores) that reflect some of her previous well known sculptures.  


The renowned sculptor, artist, writer and mother of two, Edwina Sandys is also the granddaughter of one of the most important political figures in modern history:
Sir Winston Churchill
. Sandys, who was born in 1938, grew up in the post-World War II era. Among her fondest memories were watching her grandfather paint and work on the family farm, where he tended horses, pigs and, for a few days, a lion.


Over the decades, Edwina has explored a number of mediums but it seems that it is her gigantic public sculptures that have caught the attention and fancy of the world at large. In 1990 following the tearing down of the Infamous Berlin Wall, she created a monumental sculpture entitled Breakthrough fashioned from sections of the Wall close to the Brandenburg Gate - complete with all the political graffiti. Fittingly, the sculpture is now on the grounds of Westminster College where her grandfather delivered his famed Iron Curtain speech.


Her sculptures are for the most part based on universal themes and many portray women and family. During the International Year of the Child, the United Nations installed three of sculptures, Child, Family and Generations at the U.N> School in New York and at the UN headquarters in Geneva and Vienna.


Since launching her career in 1970, Sandys has captured the attention of museums, institutions and private collectors worldwide with her bold marble silhouettes, fanciful aluminum images and her colorful paintings leading many to compare her work to that of Matisse and Toulouse-Lautrec.


Edwina and Richard consummate hosts welcomed a diverse group of friends’ family and fans to the airy loft including Stephania Conrad, David Aldea, Paul Sharpe, Josiah Early, Julie and David Toby,
 Paul Guntter, Brenda Anderson, Kelley Anderson, Christopher Norwood, Arthur Prager, Jennifer Beeby, Alex
and Barbara Kreton, Lon Choung, Frederick Doner, Mary Ellen Oldenburg, Sandra Ourusoff, Paula and Eliot Hawkins and
James Whitecross.
