To coincide with Antony Gormley’s installation Field for the British Isles (1993) on display at Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art (NGCA) at National Glass Centre, Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens are hosting an exhibition of twelve drawings made by Gormley between 1986 – 1992.

About

The twelve drawings, selected by Antony Gormley are made from red-coloured earth mixed with rabbit skin glue and water, black pigment and blood. The drawings recall the artist’s first encounter with the desert interior of Australia in 1989 and relate to the very first Field work, Field for the Art Gallery of New South Wales made in the same year. Field for the British Isles is on display in the North East for the first time in 25 years.
