Der 1935 als Sohn eines englischen Offiziers in Aegypten geborene William Tucker ist einer der führenden Vertreter der englischen Skulptur nach Henry Moore. Tuckers Karriere nahm einen ungewöhnlichen Verlauf: In den 1960er Jahren etablierte er sich mit seinem abstrakten konstruktiven Werk in England erfolgreich als Bildhauer, und mit The Language of Sculpture verfasste er ein einflussreiches Werk zur Skulptur des 20. Jahrhunderts. Ende der 1970er Jahre siedelte Tucker in die Vereinigten Staaten über und baute sich erst in Brooklyn, dann an einem abgelegenen Ort im Staate New York ein neues Atelier auf. Der Neuanfang liess ihn zu den Grundlagen der Skulptur zurückkehren, und er begann, figürliche Formen zu modellieren. Es sind Werke, die von faustgrossen Lehmklumpen ausgehen und monumentale Dimensionen erreichen können. Sie bewahren in sich den heiklen Moment des Übergangs von der trägen, amorphen Masse, aus der sie geschaffen sind, zur lesbaren Figur. Ihre archaische Kraft evoziert Stationen der Skulptur von der Antike über Degas und Rodin bis zu Alberto Giacometti. Dieses beeindruckende Spätwerk, das in Europa noch zu entdecken ist, bildet ein authentisches Gegenstück zu Arps parallel dazu gezeigten modellierten Skulpturen. Exhibition: Kunstmuseum Winterthur, Switzerland (30.01-22.05.2016)
The sculpture of William Tucker by Joy Sleeman( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"William Tucker (born 1935) is a British-born sculptor who moved to North America in 1976 and became an American citizen in 1986. This is the first major monograph on his work, and includes a complete catalogue of his sculpture to date." "Joy Sleeman's text situates the entirety of Tucker's sculptural enterprise in a broad interpretive framework and explores its wider implications for reconsidering the recent history, theory and practice of sculpture. The book has been compiled in close collaboration with the artist, whose comments are included in the fully illustrated catalogue of sculpture. It will be essential reading for artists, art historians, curators, dealers and all those with an interest in the recent history and current practice of sculpture."--Jacket
