John Ferguson is passionate about discovering and expressing the thoughts, dreams and hopes of the human heart. “Through the pain and pleasure of life, each of us has a unique story to be told. I express my story through creating art objects.”
Ferguson is drawn to the movement, shape and warm, rich colours naturally inherent in wood and stone and the powerful strength of steel and aluminium.
His public works adorn bridges across Auckland, appear in Browns Bay Library, at North Shore Hospital, at the Alexandria Library in Egypt, and feature in private collections.
He has exhibited at NZ Sculpture OnShore and Elemental Alchemy symposiums at Matakana.
Ferguson lives and works in Paeroa
