Antony Gormley’s ‘Standing Matter’ (2010) is a piece of human appreciation of the weight of mans’ imperfection faced with those perfect symmetrical blocks of his own creation. A human without angles and anonymous against colourless outlines speaks to the hopelessness of the human condition – relentless progress of the Lego block constructions of our weak and featureless imaginations against the molecular structure less shape of our existence. Exquisite.
‘Standing Matter’ is on display in the Gallery and available to purchase. Framed and certified with Gormley’s signature on the reverse.
