Tony Cragg: Sculptures

‘As the poet uses the words on the page and the painter the colour on the palette to extend themselves to search for new forms and meanings, the sculptor uses materials as an extension of himself.’
- Tony Cragg

Lisson Gallery announces an exhibition of new wood, bronze, stone and stainless steel works by Tony Cragg previewing Tuesday, 16th May at 52-54 Bell St.

From the outset of his career, Cragg has made no secret of his interest in the physics of materials and the dialogue between the material, the artist and the world at large. Like an alchemist or particle physicist, he combines process and energy with the elementary constituents of matter to see how they ‘collide’. “The sculptor engages the material with what he knows and comes away knowing more.” Without exception, Cragg’s work reveals a rigorous intellectual process and enquiry, resulting in a ‘grounded’ poetry, at once rational and powerfully ethereal.
