The Royal Ballet embarked upon an exciting collaboration with Michael Talbot and the Calken Gallery, which includes an impressive portrait sculpture of Royal Ballet Principal dancer, Edward Watson , ‘Callisto’, and 'Juliet', which are both elegant portrayals of a dancing ballerinas. Each is based on Michael’s direct observations of dancers from The Royal Ballet and carefully scrutinised by the expert and experienced eyes of the Royal Ballet directors.

Michael says;

“I see this is the beginning of a dialogue between sculpture and dance that allows me to work with artists of the highest calibre from The Royal Ballet. Both art forms are trying in many ways to achieve the same thing  - Ballet through awe inspiring training and discipline that transcends the physical limitations of the body, and with sculpture the fixed physical limitations of the material in space. We are both focused on making art works that are in the world but in some way not of the world, that are in the simplest sense, breaking bounds."

Michael James Talbot is one of the leading figurative sculptors of our time, creating beautiful, evocative works of art that captivate and inspire. He says "The human form gives me an endless source of inspiration. The subtlest of movements and expressions can be captured in the sculpture to portray a myriad of emotions and convey tension, drama, fluidity and grace. No other subject has this richness of emotional and spiritual content or the capacity to convey such a broad and interesting narrative.
