Jon Buck's arresting large scale bronze seems to represent a couple locked together, gazing lovingly into each others eyes. Closer examination reveals a strange fusion of their forms, with their bodies so far intertwined as to have become a single entity.
This piece came to Canary Wharf as part of the Shape of the Century exhibition. Even whilst studying at Manchester Art School, Buck worked against the mainstream and pursued his own interests.
His work came to centre itself on the fabrication process. His figures do not only represent men and women, but also "Man and Nature".
