Four Outstanding and Unique Modern Sculptors
Based in London, Jonty Hurwitz has become fairly well known for his mind-bending sculptures that only take true form once seen at a particular angle or in a mirror. For several pieces, he essentially creates what resembles a nondescript stretched out piece of metal or material covered in contours. Only upon being placed in front of a cylindrical mirror can the shapes be seen for the oddities that they really are, like a disembodied hand or frog.
Unique Modern Sculptors: Antony Gormley
Another sculptor hailing from the country of Queen Elizabeth II, Antony Gormley is best known for his use of humanoid statues in various public places in the United Kingdom. According to Gormley, who frequently uses his own body as a mold, the human body is not an object or an entity, but rather a place. In his work, then, Gormley seeks to make people stop and think about the world around them when they see these new yet timeless “places” next to historic landmarks.
