George Triggs spectacularly challenges the traditional figurative format of sculpture with integrity. His technical knowledge and mastery of materials including bronze, wax, resin, interactive projection and plaster have earned him much respect in the fine art circles and many awards. He tackles our most heightened emotions through his works, whose visual magnetism blends with a delicate beauty and deep meaning.
Triggs won the Founders sculpture prize and has been a finalist of the V&A Sculpture Prize. He has been shortlisted for several other acclaimed prizes and was commissioned to provide a work for the London Olympics 2012. A recent front cover and interview in The Art of England magazine also highlights this sculptor’s exciting presence and formidable talent in the field of sculpture.
“In life, we grasp at happiness, glimpse clarity and often find our inner selves through life’s most severe trials. I try to capture this in each of my sculptures.”
