Description

Israeli artist Absalon (1964-1993) built large white geometric sculptures that began as plain renderings of basic forms--rectangles, squares, triangles, circles--and developed into shapes resembling machine parts, eventually becoming contemplative dwelling units. This volume constitutes a catalogue raisonne of his works.show more

About Bernard Marcade

Absalon, geboren 1964 unter dem Namen Meir Eshel in Aschdod, Israel, ging 1987 nach Paris, wo er bis zu seinem frühen Tod 1993 arbeitete. In nur wenigen Jahren schuf er ein Werk von außergewöhnlicher Komplexität und Geschlossenheit, das - obwohl unvollendet - nie fragmentarisch bleibt. Absalon was born in 1964 as Meir Eshel in Ashdod, Israel, and relocated to Paris in 1987 where he would live and work until his premature death in 1993. In only a few years he created an oeuvre of exceptional complexity and consistency, which-although unfinished-never appears fragmentary.show more
