Thinking Sculpturally

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The biggest UK exhibition to date by leading sculptor Tony Cragg opened on 4 March 2017. New sculptures, drawings and works drawn from nearly five decades of Cragg’s practice survey and demonstrate the artist’s pioneering and continued mastery of materials in the Underground Gallery and open air.

This catalogue essay for Yorkshire Sculpture Park's exhibition focuses on aspects of Cragg's practice, including his investigations into seeing beneath and between the world of surface impressions and the world of material engagement. The essay accompanied a curated collection of images from the exhibition, and featured alongside an essay by Jon Wood (Research curator at the Henry Moore Institute) and an introduction from the curator Helen Pheby.
