40th Anniversary lasercut for Yorkshire Sculpture Park

To mark the 40th anniversary of Yorkshire Sculpture Park Rob was commissioned to create a special limited edition artwork for their shop.

‘There Are Other Kinds of Wealth’ was designed to capture and celebrate the essence of the Sculpture Park.

The lasercut reads: ‘I owned nothing yet I owned everything. I had no transport but I had my legs I had no money but I had eyes to see. I was rich in visions and wealthy in the magnificence of all I had to view. And we were millionaires.’

Signed and numbered by Rob in edition of 250 the lasercut is available from YSP’s award winning shop.
