Eduardo Chillida

Eduardo Chillida was born in 1924 and died in 2002 in San Sebastian, Spain. Eduardo Chillida’s first works were influenced by Cubism and Abstraction but displayed unique formal qualities by combining empty space with volume. “I had the feeling that the plaster, as well as my visits to the Louvre, were leading me towards the white light of Greece (…). I come from a country that has a black light. The Atlantic is dark.” With great technical mastery, he sang the praises of the formal qualities and dynamism of these pure materials. The viewer can sense the air and space that move within the heart of the sculpture, which often defies gravity.

His work was included in the exhibition 'Untitled, 2020' (2020) at Punta della Dogana.
