Philip Jackson CVO DL MA FRBS

“If I am asked to describe what I do with my sculpture I reply that I look back at a previous age and render it in an impressionistic but contemporary manner.”

It is continuity and figurative tradition that roots Jackson as a sculptor, whether it is his gallery sculptures, many of which are inspired by Venice and the Maschera Nobile and are sought after by collectors all over the world, or his many public commissions such as the Bomber Command Memorial in London’s Green Park, or the statue of Bobby Moore that welcomes football fans to Wembley Stadium.

“Philip’s ability to achieve respect and admiration embracing two such different fields is rare and much to be admired. He has left an indelible footprint on his time.’
The Rt Hon the Lord Heseltine CH
