"Robert Marc "
Mixed media on cardboard -
About the work
This work, like the work of Robert Marc, is inspired by Tatlin's Russian constructivism. Idea of a construction without any link with visual reality. Autonomy of forms therefore, a form which creates a relationship of tension with that of its immediate proximity.
Robert Marc explores the variations of this choice of abstract shapes: rectangular planes, circles, arcs of circles, square planes, the effects of which he accentuates with uneven touches of color.
