Classical Sculptor Robin Buick with his latest creation 'The Dancing Circle' on show at the United Artists Irish Art Sale and Spring Exhibition at the Mansion House in Dublin.
Former Antrim computer software engineer and sculptor Robin Buick has no formal art college education but his latest creation 'The Dancing Circle' is his most ambitious work to date. He loves to work with three dimensional human forms and "to see things in the round". He has been studying figurative sculpture for fifteen years and took it up as a full-time vocation in 1984. He has exhibited extensively in group exhibitions and at the Annual RHA Exhibition.

Buick speaks to RTÉ reporter Una O'Hagan about his love for the classical human form and explains the symbolic nature of the figures' nakedness in his sculpture The Dancing Circle. The resin sculpture has an asking price of £8,000 for the circle and £1500 for a single figure.
The United Artists Spring Exhibition in 1986 also features work by artists including Desmond Carrick, Liam Treacy, Norman McCaig, and George Gillespie.
