Title/Subject: Abstract Constructivism Sculpture 2 by Nahum Villèlia
This sculpture takes the forms and innovations of Russian artists like Naum Gabo and Vladimir Tatlin from the beginning of the 20th century. These so-called Constructivists wanted art to directly reflect the new industrial world, described by Tatlin 'as a purely technical mastery and organisation of materials.'
Nahum Villèlia is the son of Moises Villèlia (1928-1994), who was an important Spanish artist who explored floating forms in space, in the manner of Alexander Calder and inspired by Conceptualism.
Works by Nahum Villèlia are in the Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona.
