The RA says this about him:
'Michael Sandle studied at Douglas School of Art and Technology, Isle of Man from 1951 to 1954 and the Slade School of Fine Art, London from 1956 to 1959. In his early work he emphasised craftsmanship and the search for symbols, rejecting the formalism increasingly common in sculpture of the period. Throughout the 1960s and ’70s he worked on a small range of individual works in which he explored abstract and figurative idioms.
He has exhibited in numerous group exhibitions in Britain and internationally including the 5th Paris Biennale, 4th and 6th Documenta and Sao Paulo Biennale.'
If you scroll down his page on the RA's website, you'll see his just how wide his fame has spread. I was very much in awe of the man, and very pleased that Robert Hiscox was able to give him a suitable introduction. I haven't taken any decent photos, but the talk was excellent. He was entertaining and self deprecating, and we were so fortunate to have had him to talk to the Friends.
