In his figurative and abstract, bronze and stone sculpture, Laurence Broderick draws inspiration from the female figure and wildlife, in particular the otter and endangered species. When learning of the plight of turtles, polar bears, rhinos and elephants due to man's abuse, it had a profound and emotive effect on expressing his art. Childhood influence from pebbles and bones with their subtle shapes and curves is at once apparent in the artist's stonecarving. He strives for vitality, tactility and movement, emphasized by simplified forms, subtle curves, flowing lines and smooth surfaces, often contrasted by small areas of rough texture. Laurence Broderick is predominantly a stone carver, working with many types of stone including Ledmore, Portsoy and Purbeck Marbles, Alabaster, Polyphant Soapstone, Hopton Wood and Ancaster Limestone. He also models in clay, plasticine, plaster and wax for casting into bronze.
