Antony Gormley On Sculpture
This is the first book to focus on Gormley’s thoughts on sculpture, positioning his career and artistic philosophy in relation to its history.
Presented in Gormley's own voice, Antony Gormley On Sculpture captures the universal resonance of an artist with an unerring ability to tap into the public consciousness.
- The book is structured thematically over four chapters - Featuring Gomley's thoughts on the body, time and space in relation to major works, discussions on sculpture, the influence of Buddhist and Jain sculpture on his own work and ideas, and finally showcases the artist’s most recent sculptures
