Iron Men artist Sir Antony Gormley is showing another side of his work in a new exhibition opening in Southport this weekend.

Elemental runs at The Atkinson in Lord Street from September 5 to November 15.

It features a series of new works on paper by the 65-year-old, and which will go on show for the first time on Saturday as part of the solo exhibition at the arts centre.

The new series was produced by Gormley in 2014, and continues some of the themes explored in earlier works, specifically their relationship to the elemental.

Titled North Light, the carbon and casein on paper works were created during time the artist spent in Norfolk.

The new drawings will be exhibited alongside a series Gormley produced some 20 years ago. The Body & Light series originates from the period 1990-96 and explores light, depth and movement.

This series has been exhibited in Europe, Mexico and the United States.

Elemental also marks the 10th anniversary of Gormley’s Another Place installation on Crosby beach.
