In his figurative and abstract, bronze and stone sculpture, Laurence Broderick draws inspiration from the female figure and wildlife, in particular the otter and endangered species. When learning of the plight of turtles, polar bears, rhinos and elephants due to man's abuse, it had a profound and emotive effect on expressing his art.
He is joint president of the International Otter Survival Fund, a global charity for the conservation of the otter, based on the Isle of Skye.
The scale of work ranges from small bronze maquettes up to very large outdoor sculpture of monumental proportions.
He was awarded Associate Membership of the Royal Society of British Sculptors, and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of the Arts.
Laurence Broderick holds regular exhibitions of his work throughout the UK and overseas. He has held an annual summer exhibition at the Gallery An Talla Dearg on the Isle of Skye since 1979.
Laurence Broderick has also shown his work in successful group shows with the Royal Academy, Royal Scottish Academy, Royal Society of British Artists, Contemporary Portrait Society, Society of Wildlife Artists and the Royal West of England Academy.
Commissions include 'The Bull' Bullring Birmingham.
Year Established: 1979
