ETC: Eleanor Crook

In the final ETC interview in the 6-part ART/WORK SERIES Jake Spicer talks to sculptor and anatomist Eleanor Crook about the development of her career and the themes & processes behind her sculpture. -- About Eleanor Crook Eleanor Crook studied classics and philosophy before training in sculpture at Central St. Martins and the Royal Academy Schools where she specialised in wax modelling and lost wax bronze casting, studying anatomy and forensic facial reconstruction to imbue her figures with a more convincing sense of life. Her notable sculptures include a bronze and mixed media sculpture of Santa Medicina commissioned by the Wellcome Galleries of Medicine at London's Science Museum, a portrait of Virginia Wolff for King's College, London and ‘And The Band Played On’ – a group sculpture demonstrating historical examples of the pioneering reconstructive surgery.
