Artist's work makes a big impact...

PRESTIGIOUS sculptures set to grace some of Hampshire’s most cherished public places are being crafted just outside Andover, at Quarley’s Project Workshops.
The Angel, an 8ft bronze cast by artist Amy Goodman, adorns the wall of Winchester University’s Main Building and can be viewed from the Main Reception and social learning space, the Learning Café.
The Angel will be blessed by the Right Reverend Tim Dakin, Bishop of Winchester, on Thursday 31 October.
“This elegant and beautiful angel is designed to both represent our Christian foundation and extend arms of welcome to people of all faiths and those of none,” said Professor Elizabeth Stuart, Deputy Vice- Chancellor at the University of Winchester.
“She is a wonderful addition to the King Alfred campus.”
Amy Goodman is an established sculptor and portrait artist who trained in fine art and over the past 16 years she has developed a unique style of sculpture, working in welded steel and in bronze and resin.
Further works of art by Amy Goodman can be seen in various locations across the King Alfred campus and at West Downs, including welded steel animal sculptures of a snow leopard, peacock, horse, wolf and eagle.
These represent the university’s concern for animal welfare and sustainability.
Amy will soon be starting work on the life-size version of a First World War trooper and horse for Romsey Memorial Park.
She says it is a real honour to be involved in such a poignant project.
Amy won the prestigious British Sporting Art Trust Best Sculpture Award at this year’s Society of Equestrian Artists Horse in Art Exhibition at the Mall Galleries, London.
