Hilary Manuhwa’s work has benefited from his familiarity, through his father with the more traditional way of sculpting expressing cultural and spiritual beliefs. Since working with the younger artist, he has been able to enhance his practice by incorporating themes of everyday life, or by producing work that comments on aspects of life in the 21st century. His sculpture, Road to Freedom, for example, was recently on view at World Museum Liverpool. It is a piece depicting refugees experiences, problems and aspirations.

"The problem of contemporary sculpture and the garden is one which has rankled in my mind for years. It is usually resolved through a process of inversion-that is turning it into sculpture in the garden as against garden sculpture. By that I mean the sculptor takes over the garden as an open exhibition gallery, of which the focus is their creation, to which the world of nature merely provides the frame.The Idea that sculpture is a contributory element to an overall'mise en scene',in which, sometimes its role may be incedental rather than central, has been lost.In this we have seen the betrayall of the great tradition of garden sculpture, one which was unashamed at being decorative or delightful." Sir Roy Strong
