About this item

British artist Tony Cragg has risen to become one of the most important international sculptors of the present day. From the beginning his creative work has found inspiration in nature as a model. His large-format sculptures made from metal, marble, wood, and glass are derived from organic natural shapes. The materials used are integral to each sculpture’s means of expression. Each piece is developed through a time-consuming process, during which the work is formed and the material and surface are treated. As a result, Cragg’s sculptures literally “grow” into space, often evoking through their shape or movement endlessly growing structures.
Created to accompany an exhibition at the Hessisches Landesmuseum Darmstadt, this book provides an in-depth look at Cragg’s newest works, many seen for the first time. It also showcases specimens from his remarkable personal collection of fossils and minerals that are the inspiration for many of his works. Illustrated with fifty color plates, Tony Cragg: Unnatural Selection celebrates the work of a significant sculptor whose work continues to surprise and amaze.
