Synopsis : In the last four decades the parameters of sculpture have shifted inexorably. Now, with the rise of artists like Jake & Dinos Chapman and Marc Quinn, the boundaries are even broader. Norbert Lynton's authoritative text investigates the many different approaches employed by British sculptors today, and ranges from established masters such as Anthony Caro, William Turnbull, Eduardo Paolozzi and Lynn Chadwick to the latest generation including David Mach, Don Brown, Ron Mueck, Sokari Douglas Camp, Tim Lewis and Nicola Hicks. The text is complimented by Adrian Flowers' remarkable photographs of the artists and their work. EXCERP: "Talking about life and naturalism necessarily makes us think of heads and portraits. Jane Ackroyd;s head, Full Moon, belongs to the later history of cubism and has something of Gonzalez's excellent constructed metal heads about it. Glenys Barton's suavely flattened head in glazed ceramic adds vividly to the long history of sculptured heads since ancient times and recalls Renaissance subtleties of form and expression."
