Over The Earth


Anthony Cragg works with a range of materials, including stone, wood, glass, aluminum, cast bronze, and found objects. He is constantly searching, through his sculptures, to find new relations between people and the material world. His recent work investigates the complex internal formal constructions and geometries that give rise to exterior forms. In Over the Earth, Cragg explores not only nature and the forces of energy found in the organic world, but also how our reality is shaped by technology as well as the changing perspectives and pace of modern life.
