Whether it is iron, steel, aluminum, lead, bronze, silver, or gold—metal provides artists with a material that can be worked and shaped in a wide variety of ways, affording them considerable scope for expression. The results can seem heavy, bulky, and overpowering, or can take viewers by surprise due to their intricacy and lightness. The latest technological advances have provided a plethora of new ideas for artists’ critical engagement with this material. Metal, in other words, has become a creative medium that allows the artist to produce both figurative and abstract, both objective and poetic works of art.This book explores in detail metal’s many different possibilities as a material and features a number of key works of metal sculpture from the sixties to the present.
