Following the huge success of his 2009 exhibition, Pangolin London is delighted to announce their forthcoming solo show of work by Jon Buck. Charting the most recent developments in Buck's career this exhibition explores his most adventurous and bold sculpture to date.
Through his pre-occupation with animal forms, and birds in particular, Buck has created a joyous and lyrical visual language. Clever, humorous and deeply moving, the artist's totemic sculptures and vivid animal and human characters invoke the raw, spiritual qualities he believes to be rooted in all of us.
This exhibition looks in detail at Jon Buck’s most recent sculpture and works on paper and his move to a more pared down and abstracted mode of expression. Still full of personality and his distinctive style, these new works take on a more confident and matured approach to image making and consolidate the artist’s musings on man and nature.
