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.
