William Tucker maintains an important position in contemporary sculpture, continuing to explore the meaning and role of the sculptural object from the broader perspective of developments since the late 19th Century. Since leaving his native England for New York in 1978 Tucker has re-evaluated traditional subject matter, such as the human form and the horse head, and revived the practice of sculpting in plaster in the manner of Rodin. His works explore mass, surface and movement in an abstracted treatment of the figure.
