Tony Cragg / Haunch of Venison Zurich

British artist Tony Cragg presents a body of drawings and watercolors alongside new sculptures in stone and bronze for his first exhibition at Haunch of Venison Zurich (March 16 – April 21, 2007). “The exhibition will feature fifty graphic works from the last ten years, ranging from rhythmical arrangements of faces and inanimate objects to lively explorations of abstract forms. A selection of Cragg’s watercolours in which the human body is configured as a floating, twisting strand of chromosomes continues his preoccupation with uncovering the material world… Cragg’s sculptures possess a strong sense of movement as though energised by physical charges or currents. They frequently begin with a drawing whose anthropomorphic shapes are then stretched and skewed along different axes when projected in three dimensions.” (PR HoV).
