Yesterday we learnt a little about Philip Jackson, CVO DL MA FRBS a renowned British sculptor click here.
His bronze statues are dotted around the UK as tributes to many famous figures of recent and long ago history.
But today we are in for a special treat as we visit the sculptures in Philip's own garden in West Sussex in England.
They reside within a four acre park which is reminiscent of Monet's garden at Giverny:
Philip holds an Open Day at his gardens just once a year, in May. Otherwise, vists are rare and are strictly by appointment. The Open Day for 2022 has just been held, on 14th May.
But for those of us who missed it, or don't live in England, here are some images of his mesmerising work. Philip is noted for his modern style and emphasis on form, so we hope you like it!
Let us know what you think in the comments box below!
The garden event is held annually to raise money for the Murray Downland Trust, which manages local nature reserves on the South Downs, such as Heyshot and Harting.
Philip himself was on hand to answer visitors' questions and conducted a tour during the afternoon to explain his inspirations and themes.
Many of his sculptures are inspired by Venice, with the costumes and masks meticulously researched......
They make me think of author Dan Brown's thriller, Inferno ...... what do you think?
And his work is just as captivating against a landscape of snow....
With thanks to Philip Jackson.
