Jon Buck: Behind the Linesby Pangolin London
- Exhibition Catalogue
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. Through the reduction of detail to simple line and volume, Buck gives his ideas a direct expression and his bold and joyful use of colour enhances our primary response to each piece.
