Simon Gudgeon’s latest works at FORM

One of our most exciting events of the year is fast approaching. FORM: The Sculpture Show 2023 returns on Saturday, April 1. We’re working closely with 35 leading contemporary sculptors exhibiting at this, the third annual show. The preparations are well underway, with extraordinary works arriving and being installed every day throughout the park.

And, as an exciting addition to this year’s FORM, we are pleased to announce that Simon will be unveiling his two newest pieces during the show.

Simon’s new work… 

Simon’s newest sculpture, Prima, is the latest in his acclaimed figurative series inspired by Prima ballerina of Staatsballett Berlin, Ksenia Ovsyanick.

This delicate piece, created from individual bronze leaves, has an ethereal quality, reflecting the elegance of the ballerina, and the beauty of the performance. 

Alongside Prima, Simon will also be unveiling an innovative kinetic sculpture, Sail, that he has been working on conceptually for many years. Sail explores the beauty of pure abstraction, mesmerizing the viewer with seemingly infinite unpredictable movements.
