Summary

"My approach to sculpture originates from my interest in human beings, set within our modern condition. This interest is essentially anthropocentric and draws upon the vast corpus of figurative styles from different civilizations."
-
Harry Georgeson

Georgeson works with bronze and stone to create figurative sculpture while maintaining a studio in New Hope. He is interested in light and space and how they reveal form across and between surfaces. Georgeson uses drawing and clay to model his works.
