Pangolin London is proud to present a stunning exhibition of sculpture, maquettes prints and drawings by highly regarded Royal Academician, William Tucker. This is the first major solo show of his work to be held in the UK since his exhibition at Tate Liverpool and Yorkshire Sculpture Park in 2001, and includes a range of new bronzes previously unseen in the UK.

William Tucker’s sculpture masters a unique balance between the figurative and the abstract with astonishingly powerful results. His works are expressive in their mass and bring emotional gesture to a solid core. An ambiguity of image means that direct interpretations are often elusive, however his intricate surfaces and dynamic forms provide endless enjoyment and intrigue. Keith Patrick, author of the catalogue essay for the exhibition notes that Tucker’s sculpture: “has always retained the essential ability to confront, confuse and disarm our expectations, and so return us time and again to the sculpture’s objecthood”.

William Tucker is a highly respected sculptor, lecturer and writer. His numerous accolades include representing Britain in the 1972 Venice Biennale, publishing one of the most distinguished sculpture publications of our time The Language of Sculpture in 1974 and becoming a Royal Academician. Tucker won the Jack Goldhill prize for sculpture at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in 2009 and has this year been awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award by the International Sculpture Centre.

This exhibition offers visitors an opportunity to enjoy Tucker’s sculpture in both miniature and monumental scale as well as a diverse range of works on paper. The exhibition coincides with the International Sculpture Center’s Annual Conference which will take place at Kings Place 7th - 9th April 2010. Please go to www.sculpture.org for further information.

A fully illustrated catalogue accompanies the exhibition.
