Tony Cragg. Sculpture – an exhibition at the Wrocław Contemporary Museum
After almost 20 years the Polish audience will again have a chance to admire the works of Tony Cragg – one of the best-known sculptors in the world, who together with several other British artists such as Antony Gormley, Anish Kapoor or Mark Wallinger create the power of contemporary English sculpture.
He combines varied form, inclination to experiment and unfailing perfection. Tony Cragg consistently promotes its classical understanding. In the face of modern science and technology, and the transformations which have happened in the practice and theory of art, he manages to advocate the significant role of sculpture and does not sound like a guardian of a dying tradition. He is regarded as a master of material. His works are made in bronze, stone, glass, ceramic, resins or wood; they delight with their organic form, dynamics of meandering shape, intriguing titles. They are situated between abstract art and figurative art.
