Michael Craig-Martin - present sense

by Michael Craig-Martin | 27 February 2019
Category: Art & Design
Born in Ireland, the artist Michael Craig-Martin studied in America. On returning to the UK, he became a key figure in British conceptual art and an influential educator, linked in particular to the YBAs including Damien Hirst and Gary Hume. Craig-Martin's works transform recognisable objects - such as sneakers, headphones, watches and, most recently, Modernist buildings - with bold colour and simplified lines. He cites his 'rationalism' as the root of his practice. Craig-Martin is the latest subject of a three-year curatorial partnership between the Windsor Gallery, Florida, and the Royal Academy of Arts, London, initiated to celebrate the latter's 250th anniversary. This lively book reproduces a selection of his paintings, prints and sculptures, with an insightful essay by art critic Ben Luke and an exclusive interview between Tim Marlow and the artist. Published to accompany an exhibition at the Windsor Gallery, Florida, 26 January - 26 April 2019.
