    A leading British contemporary sculptor, Simon Gudgeon is known for his often very large-scale minimalist, semi-abstract forms, created in his signature smooth style. Using a stripped-back aesthetic, Gudgeon takes nature as a major influence, working directly from his encounters with, and observations of, live subjects and the natural world. He is perhaps best known for his monumental sculptures Isis and Search for Enlightenment (both placed in London’s Hyde Park), as well as his sculptures of birds in flight which appear to defy gravity.

    • Gudgeon captures specific moments through the crafting of clean lines that suggest rather then depict a form, a movement or a feeling, provoking a strong connection between the viewer and the object.

       

      He sculpts primarily in bronze, and occasionally in marble, granite, glass or stainless steel. Terracotta clay, oil-based Chavant clay, epoxy resin or foam, are used for the initial modelling, depending on the nature and scale of the subject and the intended result.
