Antony Gormley

London - England, 1950)

Alongside artists such as Richard Serra and Anish Kapoor, Englishman Antony Gormley is one of the most prominent sculptors of recent decades. His work features in the leading museums of contemporary art and has become increasingly renowned through numerous outdoor and urban exhibitions.

In his sculptures and installations, Antony Gormley often exploits the figure of the human body, using it as a poetic resource to address deep themes such as existence, death, loneliness, and relationships between people. The artist employs materials such as bronze, steel, wood, plaster and concrete to shape fragmented and eradicated bodies, as if their atoms are disintegrating. Sculptures in which he creates human bodies out of fine metal rods or wooden cubes give the impression of a 3D-pixelated image.

Gormley creates silent environments in which bodies of bronze, wood or plaster occupy the space and create dream-like scenarios, where the viewer is like an observer of a dream he is not part of. His works can be found in public spaces of many cities around the world.
