Long Description:
The Whisper was originally commissioned by Sainburys as a resin work to be sited outside the Homebase Store in Bromley in 1981.
The bronze version was commissioned by the Development
Corporation as a work ideally suited to its site outside the public library, a space where people meet and socialise.
Wallace's distinctive heavy figures, larger than life-size, sit relaxed and at ease watching the world go by.
In contrast to many public sculptures they seem to be the
observers rather than the observed as one whispers gossip or comment to the other.

Andre Wallace has been undertaking commissions for public sculptures since the 1970s and his work can be seen across Britain – from Salford and Newcastle to London's Docklands.
