Today's Art Moment is by Tony Cragg, one of Great Britain's most esteemed artists. His sculpture, "Ferryman," may refer to the operator of a ferry boat, to the fluid "body" of water or to the the molecular structure of matter itself. Its amorphous form extrudes and wraps in upon itself in an endless flow of energy to create a playful dialogue between interior and exterior spaces.
Tonight's Art Moment is "Turbo" by Tony Cragg. Turbo refers to an energy-generating form like a spinning top or a turbine engine. Tony Cragg explores the tilted form at rest, but its impression is one of intense dynamism. While Turbo is cast in bronze, lending it a machined quality, its form is irregular, as if comprised of discs whirling out of phase. This idiosyncratic play between randomness and logical order characterizes much of Cragg's work.
