This beautiful and comprehensive monograph, expanded and updated in anew affordably priced edition, examines the entirety of Gormley' s career, from his earliest sketches to his best-known public installations. Martin Caiger-Smith' s ' magnificent, magisterial overview' (The Independent) examines the relationship between Gormley' s life and art and identifies the singular vision that ties together a vast canon of work in an extraordinary range of media and materials. Best known for the major public works that most visibly represent his innovative approach to sculpture, Gormley is a prolific artist who has renegotiated the tension between the individual and the universal. Drawing on images that range from childhood snap-shots to photographs of his most recent installations, this book traces the evolution of Gormley' s work, from the drawings he makes every day in the studio, through the constantly evolving process of casting his own body in various forms, to the ultimate expression of his ideas in such masterpieces as the colossal Angel of the North or the scattered figures of Another Place. Illustrated with hundreds of images that explore the scale and impact of Gormley' s work - including his acclaimed exhibition at the Royal Academy in 2019, as well as recent installations in Florence, Delos, and New York City - and ' dense with insight and deeply considered analysis from the author' (Financial Times), this book is the definitive survey of a monumental career.
Martin Caiger-Smith is Head of the MA Curating the Art Museum program at the Courtauld Institute in London. In his prior roles as Head of Exhibitions and Acting Director of the Hayward Gallery, he organised major exhibitions that showed internationally, including retrospectives of Francis Bacon (1998), Roy Lichtenstein(2004), and Dan Flavin (2006). He writes frequently on art, photography, and architecture.
