The Collection is the latest range from leading British sculptor Simon Gudgeon, best known for his very large scale, minimalist forms inspired by encounters with the natural world.
The Collection offers smaller, affordable versions of the large editions that he has become recognised for, including Isis and Search for Enlightenment, which stand in Hyde Park and at One Hyde Park, London, respectively, and Pheasant and Lyrebird, both in situ at Gudgeon’s celebrated Dorset sculpture park, Sculpture by the Lakes.
The series, in part inspired by the rich wildlife at Sculpture by the Lakes, includes Kingfisher, Pheasant, Lyrebird, Isis, Search for Enlightenment, Reflection, White Swan, Bird of Happiness, Hare, Otter and Reclining Hare. (Full inventory on request). Consistent with the quality, finish and heritage that has always been integral to the larger works, these bronze sculptures have been cast with care at Gudgeon’s UK foundry.
With prices ranging from £2,950 to £8,500, they exist in editions of 50 and stand to a maximum of 30cm tall. Each sculpture comes in a handmade presentation box with a certificate of authenticity.
About Simon Gudgeon: A leading British contemporary sculptor, Simon Gudgeon is known for his 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 (placed at Hyde Park and Millbank, London, respectively), as well as his sculptures of birds in flight which appear to defy gravity. He has attained worldwide recognition, showing works in London, New York, San Diego, Paris and the Netherlands, and providing works to high profile collections including those of HRH The Prince of Wales and The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. His work is displayed permanently at Sculpture by the Lakes, Dorset, at various galleries in the US and UK.
