Michael Craig-Martin
Transparence (Blue)
Medium: Acrylic on aluminium panel
Year made: 2005
The Irish sculptor and painter Michael Craig-Martin studied art at Yale University and went on teach at Goldsmiths (his students included Damian Hirst and Gary Hume). His early work made deliberate reference to the American artists he most admired, such as Donald Judd, Jasper Johns and Robert Morris. Although he was particularly affected by Minimalism and used ordinary household materials in his sculptures, he played against the logic of his sources. This particular work illustrates how Craig Martin always maintains an elegant restraint and conceptual clarity.
Date acquired: 24 May 2006
