Ex­e­cuted in 2012, Bri­tish sculp­tor Antony Gorm­ley’s State III led Phillips’ April sale to its high­est re­sult for a New Now sale in Lon­don. The mild steel bar State III sculp­ture dis­places the artist’s body through ‘phys­i­cal pixel­la­tions’ made from steel blocks. In­cised with the artist’s ini­tials, num­bered and dated ‘AM DG 1493 2012’ on the un­der­side of the foot, the work uses the tec­ton­ics of post and lin­tel ar­chi­tec­ture to trans­late body mass into a high-rise tower or can­tilevered pon­toon.
