On March 11th I’ve started the Creative Rendezvous series. The first event was dedicated to the links between the inner necessity, impressions that music evokes in us and visualizations of those in line with the Wassily Kandinsky Synthesis of Arts.
This upcoming Sunday, March 18th we will dive into exciting and mesmerizing world of Eduardo Chillida, a Spanish Basque sculptor notable for his monumental abstract works.
Chillida (1924 – 2002), known for his massive and abstract sculptures that concentrated around the human form, actually preferred to be called a “realist sculptor”. There is a lot of movement and tension in his work and we will look into his sketches and graphic work, that often became the prototypes of his sculptures. He was a great master of using both, the positive and negative space. We will do some exercises that tap into technique Chillida often used as a step towards making 3D sculptures.
We will talk about the dialogue Chillida was engaged with Heidegger, a prominent German philosopher, about Art and Space. What is the relationship between emptiness and space and how sculpture is ’embodiment of places’.
And of course, we will explore his works and way of thinking in a more practical way!
Looking forward to challenge your notion of space this Sunday! Join the fun! Find your ticket here.
During the next Sundays you’re more than welcome to join the Creative Rendezvous about Sonia Delaunay, collaging and tribal art.
Looking forward to share my passion with you!
