Sculpture at Chelsea Flower Show

It's great to see the focus on sculpture at this years RHS Chelsea Flower Show. Amongst the more traditional figurative bronzes is this striking piece called the Rush of Nature by artist Marc Quinn. It is also made traditionally in cast bronze but has been painted in layers of strongly contrasting colours which when sanded back reveal a psychedelic spectrum of colour that Quinn wanted to convey how energy and heat appear on a scan.
