Stuart Anderson's bronze sculptures express the elegance, strength and vitality of animals and the human figure. Well-known for his depictions of greyhounds, whippets and horses, Anderson uses the equine form as a metaphor for the forces of nature and lends more freedom to their composition, not only to convey movement, but also to create an allegory for elemental beauty, power and vulnerability.

 

Anderson began sculpting as a teenager, casting his first works in lead that he melted in a saucepan on his mother’s stove. He studied sculpture at Winchester School of Art and Royal College of Art and his awards include the Henry Moore Foundation Grant, Voya Kondik Trust Grant and the Angeloni Award for Bronze Casting. He has exhibited in Europe, America, the Far East and widely in Suffolk and London, including the Royal Academy and St James’ Park Summer Shows.
