BRUTALIST METAL SCULPTURE

PERIOD: 1950 – 1960

MEASUREMENTS: W 108, H 85, D 12 CM

PRICE: ON REQUEST

Very expressive wall sculpture that evokes the pure, ‘naive’ and unsophisticated stylings and patterns of the 1960ies brutalism and COBRA movement. By methods of torch cut-and-welding rough parts of iron the maker has composed this fantastic semi-abstract animal figure. Some of the geometric elements are oxidized, some are consciously provided with a coating, which gives a varied texture to the sculpture. All very solid executed- heavy piece! Perfect complementary piece for a ‘mix and match’ interior.

The term ‘Brutalism’ ( derives from the French word brut, meaning raw ) was coined to describe an architectural movement that emerged in the fifties of the 20th century. It has been adopted by the realms of art and design to refer to expressive, attention grabbing ‘naive’ creations made of rough, high relief materials that forms a contrast with the polished, smooth and sophisticated ( related artists are Paul Evans, Henrik Horst and Paul Kingma ).
