About the Artist

Antony Gormley b.1950

British sculptor Antony Gormley works with elemental materials such as lead, iron, clay and steel, and often casts his own body as the starting point for a phenomenological or 'psycho-spatial' experience. Increasingly Gormley has created large-scale installations, often outside the gallery, which engage the public in active participation. Gormley has exhibited internationally, including a major solo exhibition at IMMA in 1994.
