Celia Scott profiles some of the artista?s best-known heads, from Eduardo Paolozzi to Colin St. John Wilson, with both a rigorous discussion of their aesthetic nature, and the engaging narrative surrounding their creation. Celia Scott attempts to rescue public sculpture from its exclusively classical connotations, while at the same time employing the visual and formal language of classical method. The resulting work sets itself apart from the current architectural and artistic landscape, highlighting moments in the collective memory against the backdrop of modern experience. This classical approach chooses strange subjects, indeed most of Scotta?s sitters were influenced by, and influential in, the modernist movement in architecture.Alan Colquhoun opens this volume with a critical look at public sculpture and Scotta?s place within, and outside of, its limits. In a characteristically robust analysis, Colquhoun examines the psychological and physical origins of Scotta?s practice, and relates her work to the history and meaning of public sculpture.Monem, Nadine Kathe is the author of 'Celia Scott ', published 2008 under ISBN 9781906155179 and ISBN 1906155178.
