“Tony Cragg has not only changed the way we see sculpture, but also the way we see and think about the material world more generally,” said Jon Wood.
The artist explores the complex relationships between the natural and man-made world to create an innovative, distinctive sculptural language.
A self-described “radical materialist,” the artist is interested in the internal structures of material that result in their external appearance.
Originally informed by British land art and performance art, his work is inspired by the macro and microstructures found in nature, as well as an engagement with industrial materials and processes.
Cragg represented Britain at the 43rd Venice Biennale in 1988, and the same year was awarded the Turner Prize at Tate in London.
