British artist Tony Cragg is one of the most important conceptual sculptors today, well known for his use of diverse styles and materials. Cragg’s pieces are wide-ranging, from works that are completely nonfigurative, like the painted bronze that is Slice to more recognizable renditions of sugar beets (Inverted Sugar Crop) or rubber stamps (Subcommittee). Often his pieces are groupings of shapes or materials, like Stack, a collection of random objects layered into a cube, or Citta, a chain of stylized houses linked to form a city. Cragg’s sculptures are very striking, and though abstract, succeed in providing a compelling narrative.
