Antony Gormley by John Hutchinson( Book )
5 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in English and held by 487 libraries worldwide
"Recipient of the 1994 Turner Prize Antony Gormley (b.1950) is an internationally acclaimed British artist who has revitalized the human figure in sculpture. Often cast from his own body, his lead and iron figures are sites for the exploration of states of being. Generating controversy and passion, Gormley's public sculptures raise key issues about the relation between art, society and the environment as a metaphysical and political realm. In the late 1990s his ongoing investigation of architectural and social space evolved into large-scale interventions, from the 300 closely ranked reinforced concrete blocks of Allotment (1996) to the 100 solitary cast iron figures facing towards the horizon on the coastal mud flats at Cuxhaven, northern Germany (Another Place, 1997). The Angel of the North (1998), commissioned by the city of Gateshead, is one of the most ambitious public sculptures in Britain since the time of Henry Moore. Asian Field, a sculptural installation made up of 190,000 clay figures, was created in Guangzhou, China, in 2003 and later toured to Beijing, Shanghai and Chongqing. Irish curator and scholar in Oriental studies John Hutchinson surveys the sources, development and significance of the artist's work. A discussion with the late Professor Ernst Gombrich covers Gormley's approach to the human figure, which both departs from and opens up Western art historical traditions. Slovenian author Lela B. Njatin weaves a poetic narrative around her encounter with Field (1990-93). For his Artist's Choice, Gormley has selected a passage from the Confessions of Saint Augustine, who, like the artist, locates memory as both a cerebral and bodily experience of the world. Antony Gormley's writings, which include interviews and artist's statements, evince the influence of Eastern thought in his art's reflections upon being and consciousness. This revised and expanded second edition includes over 50 additional pages documenting Gormley's work from 1995 to 2000. Recent writings by the artist accompany a comprehensive evaluation of recent developments in his sculptural concerns by American art historian W. J. T. Mitchell." -- Publisher's description

The ceramic art of James Tower by Timothy Wilcox( Book )
3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 122 libraries worldwide
"James Tower (1919-88) is widely regarded as one of the most distinctive figures in post-war British ceramics. Since his death over 20 years ago, his work has been often cited for its dramatic visual qualities, its subtle exploration of the boundaries of art and craft, and its lyrical integration of references to nature and the cosmos into an essentially abstract language of form and surface decoration. This is the first single publication to be devoted to his work and will reveal to a new audience the extraordinary range and quality of his achievement. Tower's career was unusual in inhabiting the worlds of fine art and ceramics which, in the 1950s and 1960s, still had only a low level of inter-penetration. Teaching at Corsham brought him into contact with some of the pioneering painters of post-war abstraction, including William Scott, Peter Lanyon and Howard Hodgkin, and as a potter Tower showed his work alongside Bernard Leach and Lucie Rie, contributing to a re-definition of modern craft. During the 1960s and 1970s he worked in white terra cotta and bronze, representing a diversity of sculptural practice during a period in which sculptors such as Anthony Caro and Phillip King were experimenting with new materials. From the late 1970s until his death, Tower concentrated again on glazed ceramic forms and was a highly original contributor to the 'New Ceramics' ..."--Publisher description

Antony Gormley by Antony Gormley( visu )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 25 libraries worldwide
An internationally acclaimed artist, Anthony Gormley is best known for his monumental sculpture "Angel of the North" . This earth bound figure with its massive wings shares with all of Gormley's work a preoccupation both with the human form and with our shared spiritual potential. Antony Gormley's early lead and iron figures were cast from his own body.They demand a physical and emotional response, but they also raise profound philosophical questions about memory , the mind and our senses. Some of his sculptures, such as the tiny sleeping figure modelled on his infant daughter "Still IV", are intensely private. Other works, like "Field and Allotment II", are sweeping social and architechural explorations on a grand scale. Many of Antony Gormley's most significant works are illustrated in this film rofile, including "Bed" , made from hundreds of loaves of slided bread, and the spectacular "Quantum Cloud" created along side the millennium Dome in London. Antony Gormley offers a reflective commentary on these and other works and on the central investigations and imperatives of his art
Antony Gormley : blind light by Anthony Vidler( Book )
6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 23 libraries worldwide
"Anthony Gormley is widely recognised as one of the most imaginative and original artists working in the UK today. This illustrated book accompanies the exhibition Anthony Gormley: Blind Light at The Hayward, the artist's first major showing in London in over 25 years." "Since the 1980s Gormley has focused consistently on the human figure, often using his own body as the starting point for works that explore our perception of space, architecture, and bodily presence." "Alongside specially commissioned photography of Gormley's major new projects, the book includes an original visual essay by the artist that elaborates his aesthetic preoccupations with images selected from his own photographic archive. Essays from leading writers and scholars Anthony Vidler, Susan Stewart and W.J.T. Mitchell provide a context in which to understand Gormley's new work, while an in-depth interview with The Hayward Director Ralph Rugoff and co-curator Jacky Klein reconsiders Gormley's place within contemporary culture and the history of art."--Jacket
