Ian Edwards Figurative Sculptures

British, b. 1974

British artist Ian Edwards’s dynamic bronze sculptures, which are typically rooted in the wonders of the natural world, capture the essence of movement. Inspired by masters like Rodin and Michelangelo, Edwards combines modern and classical techniques for figurative, nude and abstract sculptures that are representative of the artist’s distinctive and recognizable style.

Edwards has been working with his hands since he was 16. A five-year apprenticeship with the cabinetmakers at G&H Studios focused on animal woodcarving. As soon as he entered the facility’s woodcarving shop, Edwards knew he was meant to be there.

The artist developed a passion for exploring form and movement in animals and humans alike throughout his training. In his early 20s, Edwards set up his own studio. He focused mainly on wildlife and figurative sculptures, creating pieces that were inspired by walks through nature near his Somerset home.

Edwards continued to draw inspiration from nature as his style grew and progressed towards the powerful masculine forms for which he is known today. The textural sculptures reflect the landscape around him, and his figures’ sense of motion, which conveys themes of strength and self-discovery, also reference the sculptor’s own struggles with dyslexia.

Edwards's sculptures are popular among private collectors in England and throughout Europe and America. He has exhibited at Red Rag Gallery and other galleries all over the United Kingdom.

Ian Edwards - Surrender - Original Signed Bronze Sculpure
By Ian Edwards
Located in Collonge Bellerive, Geneve, CH
Ian Edwards - Surrender - Original Signed Bronze Sculpure Dimensions: 32 x 60 x 60 cm Edition of 9 Edwards’ practice expresses the power and determination of human endeavour. He draws inspiration from natural forces, with his powerful masculine figures often bearing the surface texture of time enduring landscapes. Edwards uses this external inspiration to explore very internal themes of fortitude and self-discovery. Edwards’ sensitive hand as a sculptor incorporates classical ideas about the sculpting process. In both Self Made Man and Creation of Self, a figure carves himself out of a mass of rock, reminiscent of Michelangelo's idea of seeing a form within a piece of marble and ’setting him free'. This is deeply metaphorical, reflecting timeless themes of purity, effort and self-belief. Poetic concepts such as these run throughout Edwards’ practice, with each piece subtly informed through mythological storytelling, creation beliefs and philosophical thinking. Edwards served a five-year apprenticeship at the world renowned G&H Studios...
