Antony GormleyPage 1/1
Antony Gormley was born in 1950 and since the late 70s has been internationally recognized as having breathed new life into the use of the human form in art.
Winner of the Turner Prize in 1994, Antony Gormley is acclaimed internationally and his sculptures have been acquired by many public and private collections around the world. In 1998 Gormley was awarded the OBE for services to sculpture.
Much of Gormley's art is based on his understanding of spiritual traditions. He works with archetypes, yet roots his work in subjective experience. What absorbs him above all is the way in which man contains, but is also contained by, infinite space.
