Steven Gregory: Skulduggery
By Damien Hirst
Cass Sculpture Foundation
Distributed By Trans-Atlantic Publications
96 Pages, Illustrated.
Sculptor Steven Gregory has that enviable artistic trait of being inquisitive. An explorer at heart, the latest subject absorbing his interest is human bones. As the title suggests, Gregory relishes the idea of being up to no good, of looking at things with a mischievous glint in his eye. His sculptures are largely about the human condition and encourage us to look at the world around us as a surreal theatre that is all at once disturbing yet mesmerising. This publication presents his latest work which combines human bone and semi precious stones.
These have been lavishly reproduced, and the extraordinary beaded construction is simply entitled Bones. Gregory also reveals his new series to be cast in bronze entitled Empty Vessels and a small bronze sculpture The Glorious Deadwhich is a wreath made from anatomical models of human skeletons. Other important works included Here and Now relating to the plight of Africa and Lights are Out which is a meditation on the last days of his father's life.
