Nicola Godden MRSS
The sculpture of Icarus was at the Olympic Village in 2012. It stood at 3.5 meters high; Icarus sold at a Sotheby's auction. Icarus is one of Nicola's current series, there are 11 in the Icarus series. She has also been working on ideas from pieces of bone and flint to make more abstracted artwork. More work can be seen on Nicola's website.
Nicola has had over 30 years experience as a sculptor working in plaster and clay for bronze casting. Over the years she has worked on many site specific public works with property companies and other organisations; her most well known was the Icarus sculpture for the Olympic Village in London 2012. The bulk of her work has been private work of various sizes exhibited in galleries in the U.K, Channel Islands, Ireland and America. Nicola’s work is nearly always based on the human figure whether in an abstract from or in a realistic way.
