Two figures as one (or perhaps one figure as two)MoreThe 3rd edition of The Nobile Folios explores Linked Figures, a marvellous multilayered bronze conceived early in Kenneth Armitage’s career, yet a work that in many ways captures his complete oeuvre. Two figures as one (or perhaps one figure as two) play against each other creating, simultaneously, harmony & discord.Set alongside Aristophanes’ celebrated speech on the origin of love in Plato’s Symposium, the folio is an audacious attempt to reflect & to recreate on paper the inherent tension of this highly-textured 3-dimensional work.

It does so by means of bold photography & stimulating layout, &, of course, thru the juxtaposition of words. The great Athenian playwright—who thought that originally humans were brawny globular creatures equipped with four hands, four legs, two faces on a circular neck, & comprised of three sexes—creates a magnificent & entertaining backdrop that allows a fresh reading of Linked Figures.
