Vivien Mallock

Vivien Mallock - Bronze ScultpureVivien Mallock’s work, principally in bronze, covers a wide spectrum from portraiture and large monuments to small figurative pieces of both human and wildlife subjects.

She became an Associate of the Royal Society of British Sculptors in 1998 and is much in demand for bronze portraits and pieces which rely for their effect on atmosphere and movement.

Her largest work to date, the nine-foot memorial to the Royal Tank Regiment, unveiled by HM The Queen in 2000, stands in Whitehall Court and depicts the five-man crew of a Comet tank. In 2013, her large bronze roundel bass relief portrait of Her Majesty The Queen was unveiled in the Great Hall in Winchester.

She has completed a number of public sculptures of military figures, six of which constitute a unique series in Normandy, of every level of command from ‘Monty’ (a second casting of which is installed in Portsmouth) to Major John Howard near Pegasus Bridge. In 2014, a further two bronze portraits of British commanders are due to be unveiled in Normandy as part of the 70th anniversary of the D Day landings, one in Ranville and other in Bayeux. She recently completed a memorial bronze bass relief of the Polish commander Major General Stanislaw Sosabowski near Arnhem and in early 2014 her bust of Winston Churchill is due to be unveiled in the Pentagon as a gift from the British Government to the US Department of Defense.

Her most recent subjects have varied from footballer Brian Clough to Sir Walter Raleigh. She was the last artist for whom Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother sat for a portrait. In October 2013, her bronze memorial to the Army Air Corps, a golden eagle, was installed at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire.

Between her commitments to commissions, she also enjoys sculpting smaller works of animals, birds and human subjects, many of which rely for their effect on her ability to suggest activity and character.
