Antony Gormley Retro

Antony Gormley - One And Other (2000)Blind Light (fog in a box) at the Hayward Gallery has got BBC News so excited that it's spelled Antony Gormley's name correctly. It's also put 10 photos of his works online, so we can all have a butchers at his past triumphs. One can't help noticing that today's "leading" artists don't do much with their hands. They come up with an idea - good, bad or indifferent - and get students or Chinese potters to do all the work for them. I can't say it's my idea of art, but this stainless-steel statue is a good'un, even if it did take a team of blacksmiths to make it.
