Wilbert Lloyd Roberts, Pioneer of Welsh Theatre
Commissioned for Pontio, Bangor, this piece is a 6ft contemporary portrait of Wilbert Lloyd Roberts, cast in slate and bronze to represent his Welsh heritage. The portrait grows out of a slate mountain incorporating a shard of light through a stage, in homage to his creativity and contribution throughout his career. The sculpture in Pontio is a fitting tribute to this pioneer of Welsh theatre. It stands in honour of the person who, in the city of Bangor, laid down the robust foundations which underpin contemporary professional theatre in Wales.
