A giclee print on Hanemuhle etching paper. Signed and numbered (on reverse) in pencil. ‘Body’ realises Gormley’s fascination with the human form. The artist regards the body as the place in which we reside; he speaks of skin as “a vessel for personal space”. Previous decades, throughout the modernist era, saw the human body take a back seat as an object worthy of artistic appraisal. Gormley and his bodies’ insurgence into the art world in the 1980s was, thus, regarded as new – or rather something that had been lost within art history.

The Artist

Antony Gormley

Antony Gormley is most well-known for his sculpture ‘The Angel of the North’, which stands in Gateshead in the north of England. Other public works include ‘Another Place’ on Crosby Beach near Liverpool and ‘Event Horizon’, which has been shown at many sites across the world: London, Madison Square in New York, Sao Paulo in Brazil and Hong Kong. Gormley was born in London in 1950. His artistic studies began at Trinity College Cambridge in the late 1960s, where he studied History of Art. Before continuing with his creative pursuits, he travelled through Asia for three years to immerse himself in Buddhism.
