‘The Geometry Of Fear’ was coined by Herbert Read to describe the work of young British sculptors exhibiting at The Venice Biennale of 1952. The idea for this exhibition was to show how Henry Moore had influenced a younger generation of sculptors to move away from the direct carving of stone and to embrace a metallic and angular style. The exhibitors included Lynn Chadwick, Reg Butler, Kenneth Armitage and Liz Frink and their work had a common feel and approach, relating to the fears and anxieties of the world in the post-war period.
