Powering through a mammoth session of opening, and chucking, accumulated snail-mail yesterday, a card showing this beautiful outdoor sculpture, above, by Tony Cragg was a zazzle of light in the mountainous pile of gloomy paper detritus that continues to plummet through my letterbox on a daily basis. (When will it stop? Don’t we want to save the trees, people? Digitise. Now.)
It was from the Yorkshire Sculpture Park (YSP), promoting one of their summer exhibitions: Tony Cragg: A Rare Category of Objects, 4 March 2017 – 3 September 2017.
I do love me some sculpture, especially in the open air. I am also very fond of Tony Cragg’s work – how he transforms day-to-day materials from the ordinary to significance in the landscapes we see every day. Could there be a more appropriate sculptor to feature in the lovely grounds of the Yorkshire Sculpture Park?
Okay, I’m sure there are a few more about but this has to be an exhibition worth seeing if you are able. I’ve added a couple more images, below, to whet your appetite.
