"William Tucker"
2001-03-03 until 2001-11-25
Tate Liverpool
Liverpool, , UK United Kingdom

This display of sculpture and prints by William Tucker brings together both work from the Tate Collection and from private collections in the UK. The selection traces the development of his practice from construction to modelling and casting, and presents a broad range of his work to British audiences to whom his later career is relatively unfamiliar.

Since the late 1950s Tucker has pursued a continuing investigation into the nature of sculpture and its relationship to the viewer. In 1965 he received acclaim as one of the ‘New Generation’ sculptors, for his constructed colour sculpture, which played a vital role in changing the face of British sculpture, until then dominated by Henry Moore and his followers.

During the 1970s colour disappeared from Tucker’s sculpture, which became linear in style, and after his move to New York in 1978, monumental in scale. In the early 1980s construction in wood and steel was replaced by direct modelling in plaster, to be cast into bronze.

As the work has become fuller in form, the suggestion of the human image has become stronger and encourages the viewer to consider the work in relation to their own body. The entire development of his work over the past forty years may be read as a progression from the visual to the physical, from the analytical to the expressive. Image:
