Jon Buck

Turning Inside Out

7th November - 22nd December 2012

Jon Buck’s lively human, bird and animal sculptures look back to a time when animal monuments were worshipped, and explore the human need for cultural icons. Eschewing fashion from the start of his career, Jon Buck has pursued his own interests in primitivism and the links between the physical processes of ‘making’ and the emotional and psychological content of his compositions. Indeed Buck likes to think of his sculptures as acting as intercessors between our contemporary intellectual selves and a more ancient, unconscious self that connects with our primitive, fundamental nature.
