[Until 31st August]
One of two exhibitions at The Fine Art Society in Edinburgh, in the heart of Edinburgh’s elegant New Town gallery district, Nicole Farhi – Writing Heads is a series of 25 busts of 20th century novelists and playwrights sculpted and painted by Nicole Farhi MRSS, from Françoise Sagan to Muriel Spark and Samuel Beckett. Farhi models her figures as a response to their identity and work, sculpting after her feelings towards the figure as much as their recognisable qualities. Tutored and mentored by Eduardo Paolozzi and Jean Gibson, Farhi is a member of the Royal Society of Sculptors and has exhibited at Gainsborough’s House and Beaux Arts London.
