Alison Wilding RA: why sculptors make works on paper

Published 12 May 2015

“I don’t think my work on paper has remotely anything to do with the kind of sculpture I make, and I think that’s why I do it - because it’s an opportunity to go down a different route,” says Alison Wilding RA.

  • The sculptor Academician has curated the RA’s latest Art Sales collection, currently on show in the Keeper’s House. All the artworks featured are works on paper by artists who are primarily sculptors, from Wilding and fellow Academicians such as Antony Gormley and Phyllida Barlow, to recent RA Schools graduates and artists who have exhibited work in the RA’s Summer Exhibition.

    In this video, she talks about a selection of the works on show, and explains how, for her, creating works on paper is “a way of tapping into a different part of yourself”.
