Britain Seen from the North

Tony Cragg's Britain Seen from the North is a collage created from found plastic objects that have been grouped together to form a larger shape. The figure on the left is a self portrait of the artist although Britain is his native country, he is looking at it through an outsider's eyes. I like how when looking at his creation, the viewer will notice the whole composition before moving on to the individual pieces. All of the elements have meaning to them, however as a whole they have a greater meaning. His work investigates the relationship of the part to the whole.
