Book of the day > Thomas Houseago: What Went Down (2nd edition, 2017). Published by Modern Art Oxford / Lund Humphries. "Thomas Houseago is one of the most unique and distinctive contemporary sculptors working today. This is the first ever monograph on his work and spans fifteen years of his career from 1995 to 2010. Houseago came to prominence with his monumental, figurative sculptures that are charged with remarkable energy and vitality. Houseago’s sculptures possess a daring urgency, a tactility and brute physicality that expose the process of their own making. The visible touch and imprint of the artist is nakedly evident. With texts by leading experts in the field, and featuring an interview with the artist, Thomas Houseago: What Went Down combines insightful analysis of the sculptor’s oeuvre and is fully illustrated."
