Simon Gudgeon

A leading British contemporary sculptor, Simon Gudgeon has a signature smooth style that concentrates spirit and nature.

His minimalist, semi-abstract forms depict both movement and emotion of a moment captured with a visual harmony that is unmistakably his. Born in Yorkshire in 1958, Gudgeon lived deep in the countryside on the family farm, learning the essential arts of observation, evaluation and interpretation of how animals and birds behave, both with each other and man Having first embarked on a career in law, an impulse purchase of artists clay at the age of 40 led into his practice as a sculptor.
