Sculptor Louise Giblin Casts British Military For London Show
10 serving and retired members of the British Military have been cast in bronze by body cast sculptor Louise Giblin in support of the Royal British Legion.
Lest We Forget is a fantastic exhibition open to the public now until 15th November at Gallery DIFFERENT, located in central London, and is free to attend. There is also a public Commemoration Evening opening on November 11th 6.30-9pm, which will include commemorative readings from the War Veterans who have been cast.
The artist, sister of a retired RAMC Officer, believes that although the Military models are not famous, they deserve recognition and respect for what they have experienced on behalf of our country and hopes that this project will serve as a timely reminder.
Lest We Forget is exhibiting alongside Louise’s Living Legends, another well-known group of models including Michael Portillo, Olympian and ex-Chairman of the British Olympic Association, Lord Colin Moynihan, ski racer and anti-landmine campaigner Heather Mills and ITV’s Dancing on Ice skater Dan Whiston.
