Quarry plays with both form and words; a wolf emerges out of the stone block from which it’s hewn.

Simon Perry is a British sculptor and academic, based in Melbourne, Australia. Best known for his large-scale public art works for urban spaces in Australia and overseas, Perry’s practice incorporates numerous sculptural techniques including casting, carving and fabrication.

His works have been created in bronze, concrete, granite, steel, aluminium, wood and stone. Perry’s commissioned pieces are predominantly site-specific, and often address elements of environment and public space with a gentle humour.

b. 1962, London
