Summary

One of the most celebrated and talked about artists of his generation, Turner Prize-winner Antony Gormley (b. 1950) generates lively debate and critical acclaim. His large-scale, iconic projects such asAngel of the North at Gateshead, the 100 cast-iron sculptures he placed on a British beach forAnother Place, and the hundreds of small terracotta figurines he asked the public to create forFieldhave cemented his place among today's leading contemporary artists. A consummate showman, Gormley has sought a broad stage and often collaborative audience for his work over the years. In this survey of the artist's work, Martin Caiger-Smith examines Gormley's influences and assesses his relationship to minimalism,arte povera, land and environmental art, and his response to the challenge of engaging with figurative sculpture at the beginning of the twenty-first century. With over 100 color illustrations, this is the perfect introduction to a widely respected contemporary artist.
