We are delighted to be exhibiting 6 figurative sculptures by John Brown at Tower 42.
John creates contemporary interior and exterior sculptures based on the human figure, simplified and abstracted, and expressing emotions and relationships.
The subject matter for John’s sculpture is almost exclusively based on the human form which he has abstracted and simplified to depict themes of individual figures, couples and families. Sculpture has become John’s all-consuming work and having developed a particular interest in the human form as a basis for his inspiration. He finds myself constantly surrounded by sculptural ideas. So often the everyday encounters between couples in their ordinary lives spark a composition ready to be simplified and developed into a sculpture.
Born in 1931, John Brown studied sculpture at Hornsey School of Art. He continued his art education under Howard Bate R.A. at Hampstead Garden Suburb Institute and has since been a freelance sculptor for over 40 years. He has undertaken numerous public and corporate commissions for schools, hospitals, churches and corporates. The latter include commissions for SmithKline Beecham; Racing Green (Bluewater Retail Park); Investec- City HQ; the Prudential Insurance Company; the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Marlow; and Kawaguchi Metal Industries, Japan. His work is also purchased by companies, hospitals and organisations where it complements large public spaces or offices. John’s sculptures are highly collectable with private collectors including Sir Elton John, Simon Cowell, Andrew Castle, and Lesley Ash.
The exhibition will run from 16th September 2017 until 16th January 2018 across the 1st floor reception area at Tower 42, 25 Old Broad Street, London, EC2N. All work on show is available to purchase. For further information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0208 702 8030.
