An ancestor of modern humans, living some 600,000 thousand years ago, a member of Homo heidelbergensis, made a refined hand-axe one day out of a piece of local flint, near what is today Happisburgh on the coast of Norfolk in the UK. More recently, this piece of worked flint was found there by Robert Ferguson, a director of the charity ‘Explorers Against Extinction’. The flint was registered with the British museum and allowed for use in this artwork.

In association with Willoughby Gerrish.
We are very happy to announce the opening of an exhibition of new work by Emily Young at the Richard Green Gallery in New Bond Street.
We’ll be showing 20 new heads, large and small, plus some torsos. These works are a continuation of my preoccupation with the human project of connecting again with the wonder that is our mother planet. The stillness of the stone I work with, though potentially the product of cataclysmic planetwide activities over the aeons, continues to invite profound human responses, compassion, wonder, gratitude, regret.
We are grateful for the vision and support of
Jonathan Green and Willoughby Gerrish.
