  1. Constantin Brancusi (1873- 1957)

 

Fish

Fish – 1926

Constantin Brancusi is an Romanian sculptor. The starting point for this “Fish” was that when people are thinking to a fish, they are not thinking to an specifically fish, they are thinking to a shining shape. Brancusi was one of the pioneers in cubism as a sculptor.

“They are imbeciles who call my work abstract; that which they call abstract is the most realistic, because what is real is not the exterior form but the idea, the essence of things.” (Constantin Brancusi)

Relief – 1934 (Oil paint on mahogany)

British painter of abstract compositions, one of the pioneers of modernist painting in the UK.

I like the the associations with the cubism in his “Relief” work, he was interested in the way in which paintings can represent space.

Ball, Pane and Hole  – 1936

I loved the purity and the simplicity of this work “Ball, Pane and Hole”, the relations between solid material and empty space.
