Meet the Artist - Philip Jackson

We are honoured to have been offering stunning work by Scottish sculptor Philip Jackson as part of our portfolio of bronze sculpture for many years now.  

Born in Inverness in 1944, he is now a renowned sculptor with an outstanding international reputation - acting as Royal sculptor to Queen Elizabeth II, with commissioned public statues and monuments on display in cities across the UK, Argentina and Switzerland. 

Among his prestigious, and figuratively detailed public monuments, his most significant include The Bomber Command Memorial Sculpture, Green Park, London, which was unveiled by HM The Queen, 28 June 2012; National Memorial Sculpture to HM Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, The Mall, London, which was also unveiled by HM The Queen; Sculpture of Bobby Moore for the opening of the new Wembley Stadium; and Large sculptural head of Sir Alf Ramsay, for The Football Association, Wembley, London. 

In 2009, he was appointed Commander of the Royal Victorian Order (CVO) in the Queen's Birthday Honours list. 

Now living and working in West Sussex, Philip Jackson is a leading contemporary figurative sculptor, whose highly sought after gallery pieces display a definite Venetian influence – from the small wistful maquette pieces like It's a Long Story, to the dramatic and darkly-tinged large scale pieces like The Sword Master.

Whatever the scale, each of his pieces have a lasting and hauntingly elegant appeal. His work is awe inspiring - it never fails to move people. 

His ability to convey the human condition through skillful use of body language is legendary, producing figures both imposing and operatic in their narrative and presence.

Powerful and beautifully sculpted, his meticulously precise posturing of each piece creates an overwhelming sense of drama.

You can find a large scale version of gallery piece Gale Force Nun installed in Berkeley Square, London...and Gale Force Nun II on our website.
