Sculpture by Eduardo Chillida, steel, 2001(?)

“Spanish Basque sculptor…Chillida’s earliest sculptures concentrated on the human form (mostly torsos and busts); his later works tended to be more massive and more abstract, producing many monumental public works. Chillida himself tended to reject the label of “abstract”, preferring instead to call himself a “realist sculptor” (info source: wikipedia)

“The late Eduardo Chillida transports us to an almost forgotten innocence of vision. Consider this: you can just walk up to an artwork and feel the look of it. Given the contemporary art world’s cerebral self-consciousness, its obsession with image rather than substance, Chillida’s gigantic sculptures come at us like things from somewhere else. They take us back to that initial aesthetic and reflective thrill that made us aware why we liked art in the first place.” –Robert Clark (gaurdian.co.uk)
