The four sculptors are:
Paul W. Fletcher FRBS 'I have absolute faith in the intrinsic sculptural quality of the head. I reproduce as exactly as possible what I see, trying not to improve on it in case I might miss the point. Any translation process should be largely subconscious.'
Neal French FRBS 'Likeness does not rely on exact reproduction of physical shape, but on structure, proportion and interval, on the relationships between features, on coherence and expression.'
Vlasta Prachaticka 'In a portrait sculpture there should be the physical reality of the face and the inner expression. For me the inner expression is more important.'
Brian Taylor FRBS 'My search for truth and excellence is not just in terms of achieving a likeness but also something put together well, constructed so that it says something beyond the immediate facts.'
