New work from the hugely popular Rick Kirby, with figurative sculpture of welded steel conveying a calm air of watchfulness and graceful poise.

About

Merging monumental presence with graceful watchfulness, a strong theme of guardianship runs throughout Kirby's work with his figures often representing an archaic symbol of being and consciousness. His figures leave one with a sense of feeling safe and comfortable as they sit patiently, quietly witnessing the movement of the world around them. Industrial materials are translated into compositions of calm serenity with the cold physical weight of steel counterbalancing the perceived softness and warmth of human skin.

More than 30 pieces of Kirby's work are publicly sited across the UK, most notably outside St Thomas’s Hospital opposite the Houses of Parliament in London.
