TONY CRAGG (b. 1949)

 
Tony Cragg's most recognizable works are swirling abstractions that embody dramatic movement frozen in time. “Bodicea” from 1989 is an atypical sculpture that exhibits Cragg’s early study of curved surfaces, volumes, and seemingly organic forms. His exploration of transmutating forms would evolve into two major series, “Early Forms” and “Rational Beings.” In 1988, the year before he created the present work, Cragg was selected to represent Britain at the 43rd Venice Biennale in and won the Turner Prize in the same year.
