Tony Cragg

Tony Cragg’s art typically consists of staggering, complex mosaics made of found objects, often arranged in whimsical and monochromatic patterns. He works across mediums, in sculpture, ceramics, printmaking, installations, and drawing. And works such as his 1978 floor piece New Stones, Newton’s Tones use chromatic changes in carefully arranged accumulations of consumer detritus, so as to call attention to landscape, space, and most importantly, material. Cragg has been quoted as saying, “I’m an absolute materialist—and for me material is exciting and ultimately sublime. When I’m involved in making sculpture, I’m looking for a system of belief or ethics in the material.” 


Cragg is the recipient of the prestigious Turner Prize, an honorary doctorate from the Royal College of Arts, and a Commander of the Order of the British Empire. Major solo exhibitions include shows at the Fondazione Stelline in Milan, the MACRO Museum of Contemporary Art in Rome, the Lehmbruck Museum in Duisburg, and the Museo de Arte de Lima.
