Giles Penny

Artist Statement

Giles Penny (b.1962) is an associate of the Royal British Society of Sculptors and an Academician of the Royal West of England Academy. He has exhibited in the UK and abroad, gaining international acclaim for his humorous sculptures, in bronze and steel, that often feature in town and city centres. Penny’s focus of expression is the human form, which acts as a vehicle to explore both physical and abstract worlds and often portrays an innocent humorous quality. The nature of his figures remains eternally elusive.
