MARTIN CAIGER-SMITH    Book Number: 88842    Product format: Hardback

Antony Gormley's sculptural presence is something of a phenomenon. Perhaps more than any other contemporary artist, he has succeeded in taking his work beyond the gallery to engage the public in previously untried settings. You can come across his sculptures on a Lancashire beach, in a Norwegian fjord or on the salt-pan wastes of Western Australia, as well as the British Museum, a cathedral crypt, a civic square or a contemporary art gallery. His materials range from the pebbles of the seashore and the mud of the desert to the metals of the forge and the steel mill, and his means vary from advanced computer imaging to the press of a hand in soft clay. His controversial Angel of the North has become a recognised benchmark for public projects. This book looks beyond the commonly-held view of Gormley as a maker of large-scale public sculptures. It traces the development of his art as a series of distinct themes and ideas, ideas that relate and interlace, come together and continue to form a body of work. Analysing six key works in depth including Allotment, Field and Another Place, the author sets Gormley's pieces in their historical context and, in new conversations with the sculptor, also sheds light on the artist's own assessment of his work. 128 paperback pages 27cm x 21 cm with over 100 colour illustrations and short biography.
