"In life, we grasp at happiness; glimpse clarity; and often find our inner selves through life's most severe trials. The hope, humanity and imagery that pull us through are paramount to me. These are qualities I try to capture in the life of each sculpture, along with the realisation that these moments change us, claim parts of us, make us and define who and what we are."
George Triggs is an artist who has continually confronted and challenged the traditional figurative format. The contrast his sculptures exhibit - through visual magnetism, combined with physical extremes - heighten the emotion and the perception of the concepts they portray.
Working in bronze, resins, interactive projection, glass, wax and plaster, Triggs' mastery of materials and technical knowledge are expertly used to convey the complexity of his work.
He tackles our most revered emotions head on and, in doing so, delivers works of great beauty and meaning.
