Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
William Tucker (born in 1935) is a British-born sculptor who moved to North America in 1976 and became an American citizen in 1986. This is the first major monograph on his work and includes a complete catalogue of his sculpture to date. Tucker began making sculpture in the late 1950s and came to public prominence along with fellow sculptors David Annesley, Michael Bolus, Phillip King, Tim Scott and Issac Witkin when they were included in the New Generation 1965 exhibition at the Whitechapel Art Gallery in London. Tucker and his contemporaries presented abstract assembled forms, often painted in bright colours and influenced by American abstract painting. The exhibition marked the conclusion of a period of intense dialogue and experimentation nurtured in the remarkable atmosphere of the sculpture department of St Martin's School of Art in London under the maverick leadership of Frank Martin.
