Item Description

In this minimalist abstract work, the artist experiments with shape, dimension and texture to create a highly intriguing piece. There is a sense of mystery in the simplicity of this object, whose bold form and sharp lines have a strong presence yet an obscure, unexplainable aura. The artist cleverly manipulates the surface, light and shadow of the object to portray depth, even with a limited palette. Artist Name: Sergi Aguilar (b. 1946) Spanish designer, jeweller, photographer and sculptor born in 1946 in Barcelona. He studied at the Massana School and at the Conservatory of Free Arts of Barcelona (1962-1967). From 1968 to 1973, he first worked as a jeweler before beginning to develop the basic principles of his sculpture, which he began in 1972. At first he made works in bronze, brass and marble in a post-minimalist style inspired by Russian constructivism and by the work of sculptors such as Julio González, Jorge Oteiza, Eduardo Chillida and Constantin Brancusi. Since 1980, he incorporated iron, wood, steel and aluminium into his practice; and works from drawings and photographies since 1990, adding materials like felt and cork, and mixing iron and wood in a dialogue between the natural and the artificial. Sergi Aguilar is currently the director of the Suñol Foundation in Barcelona. Sergi Aguilar's work has been the subject of individual and group exhibitions in Spain as well as in several other countries, particularly in Europe but also in the United States and Japan. His work is present in museums and contemporary art galleries international in scope, such as the Guggenheim Museum of New York, the MACBA in Barcelona, the Kunsthalle in Mannheim and La Caixa Foundation in Barcelona. In 1980 he won the "Price Cáceres Sculpture".
