tom hiscocks living art hungerfordLiving Art was formed as a natural progression from the art, antiques and furniture restoration history of Stephen and Richard Cook. The Art,Sculpture and Bronzes shown form a broad church of styles and disciplines, all united by a quality of execution about which no excuses have to be made.

The Bridge Street art gallery curates a collection of beautiful and diverse pieces of art, bronzes, sculptures and Mid 20th Century furniture from both established and breakthrough artists. Currently exhibiting is Tom Hiscocks, an exciting sculptor from Pewsey in Wiltshire whose work has won him widespread acclaim. Says Hiscocks, 'My personal interest relates to the layers of life and experience that makes each of us who we are. We typically show the outside layer of our being which, although it may bear some of the physical signs of things we have experienced, will not reveal how we felt about the ways in which we have experienced ‘being’.
