Noted British sculptor Andrew Edwards has just finished his homage to the 50th Anniversary of Tom Murray’s Mad Day Out: Summer of ’68 photograph collection of The Beatles (now showing at Soho Contemporary Art, May 31st through June 16th) by creating a bronze machete of one of the photo’s titled Coming Apart.
This particular piece was a real challenge to create. It required a lot of detail not only in the expressions but the movement of all four Beatles. Paul McCartney was literally falling off the roof of a building, on Old Street Station in London, and John Lennon grabbed him to keep him from falling as George and Ringo held on to John. Andy, as he likes to be called, is no stranger to the Beatles. His eight-foot sculptures of each of the Fab Four was unveiled on the docks in Liverpool in 2016 and quickly became the most photographed sculpture in the United Kingdom.
