Artist Daniel Chadwick invites us into the romantic Cotswolds manor house where his own works blend harmoniously with those of his father, the revered sculptor Lynn Chadwick.
Daniel Chadwick’s father, the semi-abstract sculptor Lynn Chadwick, purchased Lypiatt Park in Gloucestershire, in the southwest of England, in 1959. ‘This place was the same price as a three-bedroom house… and nobody wanted it,’ said Lynn of the medieval manor house, added to significantly in the 19th century, but which was first recorded in 1220.
‘When my father came here, he wanted no detail to take away attention from looking at the sculpture,’ says his son, Lypiatt Park’s current owner. ‘As a child we were armed with paintbrushes. My mother had a paintbrush, my father had one, and they did it themselves. Just painting it all white, you don’t lose the detail — it somehow just takes it away from being in your face.’
The house and gardens are home to some 60 or 70 imposing works by Lynn Chadwick, which in many instances have been paired with Daniel’s own pieces. ‘Mine are little bit more lyrical and airy, a bit more like thoughts, above. His works are sort of heavy and powerful and grounded. I think they look good together.’
