Edwina Sandys

 In a career spanning four decades, British born Edwina first came to international attention with her sensational bronze sculpture Christa (1975). Major works include three monumental sculptures commemorating the International Year of the Child, at United Nations headquarters in Geneva, Vienna and New York. Based in Palm Beach, Edwina describes her practice as based in principle on cutting, and in so doing outwardly references her visible link to Matisse who turned to paper cut outs at the pinnacle of his career.
