Chief is a contemporary treatment of the classical subject of warriors wounded in battle. It is usually represented by a reclining and contorted male nude. The sculpture is on long term loan to Harlow Art Trust from the artist. Turvey works in a wide range of materials, from 16mm film, to Corten steel and even jelly. Another of his sculptures Methuselah can be seen at New Hall in the east of Harlow.
