'The Blade of Venus' series of bronzes originate in the shape of Japanese swords and Chinese chopping knives. The metamorphosis of these hidden references adds an element of ambiguity and a compelling figurative identity. William Turnbull's bronzes are distinguished by rich contrast in surface, patina and detail which creates a kind of skin.

Turnbull studied at the Slade School of Fine Art. After World War II he lived for a brief time in Paris before returning to London.
