Material world: Tony Cragg at Yorkshire Sculpture Park - Financial Times
9 March 2017One of the most revealing moments in Yorkshire Sculpture Park’s exhilarating Tony Cragg exhibition comes near the end: a magic moment in a film when we see the artist drawing. Taking a blank sheet, he sketches a nose, a mouth and an eye. Then, suddenly, the pencil marks proliferate and the drawing explodes into life as a pair of richly layered, slightly skewed human profiles, one male, one female.
“I have no idea where a drawing might lead,” Cragg tells us. “It’s a journey — an adventure.”
