Tom Price Exhibition Opens at Yorkshire Sculpture Park

Date uploaded: January 8, 2014

Yorkshire Sculpture Park
Tom Price
4th January – 27th April 2014

Yorkshire Sculpture Park (YSP) presents a solo exhibition of sculpture, animation and work on paper by British artist Tom Price, including the open-air premiere of Network, the young artist’s largest bronze to date.

In the form of a young man in casual dress holding and looking at a phone, the 2012 sculpture Network references our social relationships in a world where we are increasingly connected through remote means. Sited in the open air in YSP’s Lower Park, the 2.74m figure overlooks the Park’s historic lakes and sculptures by Anthony Caro, Antony Gormley and Sol LeWitt.

Inspired by public observation, magazine images and historic sculpture, Price is rapidly establishing a strong reputation for his mastery of traditional techniques, his representation of contemporary subject matter and his consideration of identity.

Look out for an in-conversation event with the artist and Melissa Hamnett, Sculpture Curator at the Victoria and Albert Museum, later this spring.
