Homage to Aalto

2013

Ipil wood

Quick Overview

Paying homage to the acclaimed Finnish architect Alvar Aalto, National Artist Arturo Luz parallels Aalto’s oeuvre in merging organic, vernacular material and the refinement of simplified modern forms with a spirited expression. Aalto was known to deviate from the fixed rigidity of modernism, trusting instinct and spontaneity in the process of planning his designs. Similarly, Luz employs a sense of lightness and freedom as he experiments with varying geometric shapes, unique patterned surfaces of wood, and sharp corners and shadows evoking that of a maze - all of which come together to produce a playful sculptural puzzle. No two sides of the cube are exactly the same, leaving one to discover a new structure and texture on each angled surface. In this light, the sculpture is not merely a plain cube it is a testament to the National Artist’s unique approach to form and design, marked by an unmatched elegance and sophistication.
