Following two highly successful exhibitions in conjunction with Ogier in 2017 and continuing the partnership with another show planned at the law firm’s offices later this year, Gladwell & Patterson are proud to present an independent exhibition by two leading British sculptors; Nick Bibby and Simon Gudgeon.

Nick Bibby’s wildlife subjects are the mainstay of his collection and have led to commissions from prestigious institutions such as a monumental life-size, Kodiak Brown Bear from Ivy League University, Brown and the Ashmolean Collection in Oxford features his ‘Dodo’ in their permanent collection.  He most recently completed a life-size ‘portrait’ of Dagu, the alpha male Sumatran orangutan at Jersey Zoo.

Fascinated by both form and detail, he models with a fluidity and energy that few can equal, simultaneously and effortlessly combining that energy with a jewel-like attention to detail, resulting in sculptures that look as though they live and breathe. Bibby’s sculptures are both beautiful works of art and loving portraits of the animal he represents.

Simon Gudgeon’s career as a sculptor began relatively late in life but what he has accomplished in such a short period of time is inspiring.  Two of his sculptures are installed in Hyde Park and in Dorset his wife and he have created one of the most unique and beautiful sculpture parks in the UK.  Recently unveiled at RHS Malvern this week, we shall be presenting Athena, his latest figurative sculpture inspired by Principal ballerina, Ksenia Ovsyanick of the Berlin State Ballet.

Simon has a signature smooth-style that marvellously concentrates spirit and nature. His minimalist, semi-abstract forms depict both movement and emotion of a moment captured with a visual harmony that is unmistakably his own.
