Arturo Luz (b.1926)

Tribal Figure 1

2012

Ipil Wood

160 x 46 x 46 cm (63 x 17 1/2 x 17 1/2 in)

Quick Overview

Evoking the interplay between modernism and folk motifs pioneered by the Romanian sculptor Contantin Brancusi, Arturo Luz employs a similar fusion in this totem sculpture. Blending sensuous curves and sturdy lines with the warmth of wood, the piece recalls Luz’s explorations of the anito - ancestor deities in Philippine folklore. Standing elegantly, it appears as a mediator to a transcendent state of being.
