Lovely Peace

Andrew Logan

Andrew Logan and Zandra Rhodes, 2018, with his portrait bust of her, now in the National Portrait Gallery.

The Rebecca Hossack Art Gallery is delighted to announce its representation of renowned British artist, Andrew Logan. A unique creative talent, Logan has worked across a variety of disciplines over the past sixty years: sculpture, jewelry, stage-design, and portraiture. He is also the inventor and perpetual host of the surreal art and fashion event, the Alternative Miss World (established 1972).

Collaging mirrored fragments of glass, Logan creates sculptural works that reflect and refract light and colour, challenging perception. From delicate butterflies to planetary bodies, his subjects range from the everyday to the extraordinary. 'I'm very interested in remaking reality in very un-real materials,' he explains.

Born in Oxfordshire in 1945, Logan earned his degree from the Oxford School of Architecture. Using his expertise in design, he began to focus on creating three-dimensional art-pieces. He became a major part of the London counter-culture of the 1970s, collaborating with Derek Jarman, Vivienne Westwood, and Malcolm McLaren. His work has been shown (and is held) in many international museums and galleries, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, the Victoria & Albert Museum, the Hayward Gallery, and the Royal Academy of Arts, London. His portrait-bust of longtime friend and collaborator, Zandra Rhodes is in the National Portrait Gallery.
