Mute Swan

How to buy (General Information)
Mute Swans epitomize elegance and grace in the animal world. I’ve enjoyed watching them drifting silently by as I wander about Sculpture by the Lakes, sometimes in the vicinity of Simon Gudgeon’s reductive and stylized swan sculptures themselves. I have come to associate them with this place, and wanted to portray one in my own signature style, juxtaposing the curvilinear shapes of the bird’s natural form with a hard and abstract environment, suggestive of the bird’s frequent appearance in made-made waterways. I decided to add color only for the bird’s bill, adding drama and an exclamatory quality to a bird which, for all its gentle grace, already seriously demands our attention.

His dynamic and original acrylic paintings can be found in museum collections on two continents and in numerous private collections in the USA and abroad. His clear voice, unique vision, and commitment to constant artistic experimentation have positioned him on the forefront of an artistic vanguard of the best contemporary wildlife and animal painters working today.
