Sir Antony Gormley is widely acclaimed as one of the greatest artists of today for his work on sculptures, installations and great public monuments. His reputation is worldwide. He began to exhibit his work, and to come to public notice, though a show at the London Whitechapel gallery in 1981. By the period 2012 to 2022 his renown was such that he had solo exhibitions at 12 major museums throughout the world, from Brazil to Australia and in China, in the United States and throughout Europe – Germany, Italy, Greece, the Netherlands including at the Royal Academy in London in  2019.


Gormley’s art considers questions about the human body as an entity within time and space. It illustrates questions about where we as individuals exist, and our physical relationships and emotional interaction. The physical and spiritual experiences of existence ‘as a human being in the modern world’ – of the need for companionship and the fear of loneliness – are a central theme of his art.


Gormley has described his work as ‘an attempt to materialise the place at the other side of appearance – where we all live’.

It is the quality of emotional spirituality which fills all his figures, single or in groups, and the universal questions of how we interact with each-other, which is central to his wide-ranging appeal throughout the world.


Writing about this work here entitled ‘Together’, which he created in 2020 during the period of the Covid pandemic, he wrote:

These open silhouettes suggest human spaces in space. They touch each other – the touch of others, so important to us, is denied during this time of isolation…... This time of enforced isolation has also been one of inspired and connected care –of  unity in separateness. We are part of a united system of life, we are together.
