One of Britain’s leading contemporary sculptors, Simon Gudgeon has developed a minimalist, semi-abstract style, capturing movement and emotion with a visual harmony that is unmistakably his own. His pareddown approach to sculpture embodies the flowing line of the natural form, turning it into something less detailed, more abstract.
Gudgeon’s work is featured in important private collections around the world including those of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh and TRH The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, plus several art museum collections in the USA. In 2009, Gudgeon’s sculpture Isis was installed in Hyde Park, London, the first such installation there for over 50 years. HRH the Prince of Wales also has an Isis sculpture which was installed at Highgrove House, Gloucestershire in 2011. A new monumental sculpture Search for Enlightenment was installed at Millbank, London in October 2011 next to Tate Britain and also at One Hyde Park, described as London’s most prestigious address.
Gudgeon’s sculpture park, ‘Sculpture by the Lakes’ in Dorset, England has been described as one of the most beautiful and unique in the UK. Situated close to Dorchester, it is a place where you can experience art, not merely view it.
