Rick Kirby’s sculptures remain in permanent display throughout the length and breadth of the country – from Glasgow in the north to London, Kent and Suffolk in the south. The advantage of this, he says, is that not only can thousands of people see them, but he himself can return to see them again and again. Each piece he creates carries a part of him and marks a particular period in his development as an artist.

Rick Kirby developed his passion of sculpture as a natural progression rather than a sudden revelation. He had always loved art as a child, was fascinated and captivated by paintings and was particularly interested in 20th century art.
