Michael Craig-Martin is known for his conceptual artworks spanning line drawings, paintings, and sculptures that challenge viewers’ perception of everyday objects. The seminal Irish artist just launched a sculpture-focused exhibition at Gagosian’s London outpost. The large-scale installations portray safety pins, headphones as well as corkscrews in bright colors. All pieces were crafted using powder-coated steel.
“Among the leading generation of British Conceptual artists, Craig-Martin probes the relationship between objects and images, perception and reality, harnessing the unique human capacity to conjure ideas through symbols and signs,” said the gallery in a statement.
