Tony CraggBorn in 1949, Tony Cragg is one of today's most celebrated and popular sculptors. Before studying art he worked as a laboratory technician, which has had an enormous influence on his practice. His work fuses art and science in a rich and arresting way, and he works in an astonishing variety of styles and materials, including bronze, glass, plaster, wood, fibreglass, and plastics. In 1988 he won the Turner Prize.

This beautiful book, celebrating the work of one of the world's most successful and respected artists, concentrates on works made in the last ten years, but it includes also examples of earlier work, and has been produced in close consultation with Cragg.

Patrick Elliott is a senior curator at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art in Edinburgh.
