Toby Ziegler’s paintings and sculptures engage with ideas of the exotic and synthetic. Fabricating his images and sculptural blueprints on a computer, traditional motifs such as landscapes, still lifes, and cultural artefacts are removed from the familiarity of popular consciousness and reconfigured as templates of abstracted information.
From The Assumption of the Virgin to Widow/Orphan Control is the artist’s first monograph, spanning 10 years of his work. The monograph offers an in-depth analysis of Ziegler’s practice, illustrating the developments in his oeuvre.
Published to accompany the exhibition by the Simon Lee Gallery at Q-Park, London, 10 – 20 October 2012.
