The book traces the evolution of Jon Buck’s sculptural language and philosophy over three decades. In his illuminating introduction Rungwe Kingdon follows the development of the artist’s work from narrative, painted resin figures in the 1980s to interlocking ‘embraces’ in the nineties and on to today’s brightly-coloured, powerful symbolic bronzes. The book includes a personal perspective by the artist and illustrates the growth of Buck’s ideas and images through an individual and striking lexicon of shapes.
