Content

Volumes that are massive yet lightweight, the sculptures of British artist Anthony Cragg firmly take hold of the space without seeming static. They are dynamic objects that bear trace of the process that created them: starting from in many cases figurative drawings to encountering the artist’s chosen material, guided by inner force. Cragg’s sculptures reveal the infinite possibilities of form. They seem to obey the laws of nature that govern living organisms, evolving from one another and growing upon themselves.

This new book features new work by Anthony Cragg shown in a recent exhibition at Museo Nivola in Orani, Sardinia. Illustrated in color throughout, it offers also an essay exploring Cragg’s art by British scholar and curator Mark Gisbourne.
