An exhibition of works by nationally-acclaimed artist and contemporary sculptor Helaine Blumenfeld is at Ely Cathedral until October 28.
‘Tree Of Life’ is one of her largest exhibitions in Europe and has been curated by Jacquiline Creswell.
The exhibition takes its name from one of the most important and enduring themes occupying Blumenfeld’s work.
It captures all the symbolism of the imagery and describes a narrative of renewal, energy, optimism and hope.
Helaine Blumenfeld has been creating bronze and marble sculptures in her Cambridge and Italy-based studios for almost 50 years.
Formerly hailed as the next Henry Moore, she had a joint exhibition with him at the Alex Rosenberg Gallery, New York, in 1985.
In 2008, the Royal British Society of Sculptors held a retrospective of Blumenfeld work and, in 2011, she was awarded an honorary OBE to mark her achievements in sculpture.
Helen has created more than 90 public sculptures - the most notable being ‘Tempesta’ overlooking Hyde Park in London and ‘Fortuna’ in Jubilee Park at Canary Wharf.
Entry is included with the Ely Cathedral admission fee.
