Simon Gudgeon is well known for his minimalistic sculpture he was even described by the president of the Halcyon Gallery, Paul Green as one of "the most talented sculptors working in Britain today". Personally, I have never really been a huge fan of sculpture, however Gudgeon's work seemed to make me stop and think. I think it is probably due to the simplicity of his work which is designed to represent the movement and emotion of nature in smooth forms and simple lines; as it felt as though the collection of his work created an atmosphere when placed in the gallery rather than being just a display of individual pieces of sculpture. I think this also had a large amount to do with the choice of gallery as the Halcyon Gallery is a magnificent building that worked well in displaying Gudgeon's work as it was as open, free and airy as his sculpture. Gudgeon's work has also been displayed in many outdoor settings such as the Lakes in Pallington, Dorset and his signature sculpture entitled Isis is soon to be unveiled in Hyde Park in London. I enjoyed this exhibition as it was something different from what i would usually be interested in seeing; and it made me think about how important sculpture is in creating and changing a setting. I think that i will go and see his work in Hyde Park when it is unveiled to see how it impacts its surroundings.
