- Further information
Paolozzi was a pioneer of the Independent group which prefigured Pop Art in Britain. As early as 1947 he was collaging advertising images with war propaganda, to reveal the common strategies of the hidden persuaders. Later he made sculptures that suggested robots or man as machine. 'Markoni Capital' is a mechanomorph which also makes use of architectural capitals which appear here in place of the head. In more recent work he has increasingly made use of architecture as a metaphor for the body.
