William Tucker: drawings and small bronzes
William Tucker is one of the most significant and influential sculptors of his generation. his early work typified the cool, intellectual approach of the British artists at St. Martin’s in London. Since moving to the United States in the 1970’s, Tucker’s sculpture and drawings have become steadily more immediate, gestural, even visceral. He helped reinvigorate the practice of sculptors’ drawings in the ’80’s with full scale charcoals of his monumental steel and wood pieces. The recent drawings demonstrate Tucker’s engagement with both the human form and the physical act of making the work.
