Description

The sculptural work of Eduardo Chillida is non-figurative and characterized, in the artist's own words, by the dialogue between masses and voids of often monumental proportions, The sculptural work of Eduardo Chillida is non-figurative and characterized, in the artist’s own words, by the dialogue between masses and voids of often monumental proportions, elements that he endows with conceptual unity thanks to his mastery of the laws of movement and balance. In this book Carandente, far from restricting himself to commenting on the most visible aspects of the artist’s career, analyzes the conceptual and technical dimensions of his activity, both the individual task of searching and perfecting and the socio-cultural context that acts as a framework to the Basque sculptor’s output. Chillida is undoubtedly one of the most outstanding figures in the sculpture of the second half of the twentieth century.

The Artist

Eduardo Chillida

With a varied and pioneering practice that spans small-scale sculpture, plaster work, drawing, engraving and collage, Spanish artist Eduardo Chillida is best known for his prominent monumental public sculptures, mostly displayed in Spain, Germany, France and the USA. Throughout his career, Chillida drew on his Spanish heritage combined with a fascination for organic form, as well as influences from European and Eastern philosophies, poetry and history, to develop an artistic voice that communicated and resonated with a continent undergoing rapid transformation.
