About John Huggins

John Huggins has used several dominant themes over the years but in the eighties returned to the figure as a vehicle for expressive abstract ideas. His accessible images present a light, even playful feel but beneath this immediacy lie the serious issues of form and structure which have always controlled his work. John Huggins` sculptures have been exhibited in Geneva, Amsterdam, the Hague, Guernsey and the US as well as in Bath, Birmingham, Bristol and London where he has had twelve one-man shows and been continuously represented since 1968. He is an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Society of British Sculptors and is Honorary Vice President of the Royal West of England. There are two books of his work available from ArtParks. He lives and works in Gloucestershire UK.
