Anthony Caro

Anthony Caro's Night movement - a pencil drawing by john scarland 

I recently treated myself to Ian Barker's book on Caro titled Quest for the new sculpture.
It tracks his life as a sculptor searching for fresh interpretations of space, abandoning the 'plinth' to examine the floor as a reference to space.
He made a series in 89 - 90 called Night Movements that were shown In Tate Britain in 1991. I visited the exhibition and made this drawing and others to understand them better and to commit them to memory.
Reading the book underlines the movement he made over time re-interpreting forms to map space and challenge our perceptions. 
I am encouraged, and that must be good.
