Philip Jackson Studio Visit
Philip Jackson CVO, DL, MA, FRBS is a renowned sculptor with an outstanding international reputation. Born in Inverness, Philip now lives and works in West Sussex. He was appointed Commander of the Royal Victorian Order (CVO) in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list 2009.
Philip’s ability to convey the human condition through skilful use of body language is legendary. His figures are imposing and operatic in their narrative and presence. Precise posturing of each piece creates a sense of drama. His public monuments and statues and enigmatic gallery sculptures never fail to move people.
His sculptures can be seen in many cities in the UK and abroad, such as Gandhi in Parliament Square, Empress Elisabeth of Austria in Geneva, and Bobby Moore at Wembley Stadium.
Surrey Sculpture Society is very fortunate to be offered this studio visit for 25 people, including a chance to look round the garden and hear Philip talk about his distinguished career. Refreshments will be provided.
