Biography / CV of John Brown

John Brown creates contemporary sculptures based on the simplified human figure, expressing emotions and relationships. These range from small maquettes (working models) to larger pieces for the home, garden or work environment. Themes very often run through a number of completed works giving a feeling of recognizable continuity to his sculpture. The sculptures are in stone or in limited editions in traditional foundry cast materials such as bronze or in cast resin metals, such as bronze, aluminium or iron. He created the BBC `People`s Award` Trophy in 2000 and his sculptures were present to Sir Magdi Yacoub, Judi Dench, Elton John and David Jason
