Breaking Free

4 August 2019

Ben Tuge is a deep thinker, an excellent story-teller and most importantly, a master carver with over 30 years of experience. Unfortunately over the past ten years his dreams of a better future were shattered by negative interactions with some players in the art scene. 
BREAKING FREE marks his resurrection as an independent artist. This body of work represents both traditional and contemporary sculpting practices, allowing Tuge to freely express his take on the human condition. He works primarily in wood from which bronze casts are made, but also incorporates found objects in his contemporary approach to expression.
