Description

Horia Damian was renowned for his exploration of very few themes in extraordinary depth. Thomas Messer, the Director of the Guggenheim, wrote that Damian’s work is concerned with the intuition of an extra-terrestrial spatial order. Messer’s description may be difficult to understand, but Damian’s work can be enjoyed precisely because it does not require understanding. His detailed, crisp drawing forming a sensuous image is a joy to view.

Damian’s work is about geometry. But his geometry is not rigid. His work is sensitive and painterly. He had a lifelong interest in the universe and its mysteries. The subtle use of circles, squares, and spheres appeared in his later works as well as in his sculptures. The beauty of these abstractions is their ability to suggest so much.

This work, #14723 from “9 Projets Visionnaires”,  is beautifully framed in a hand-made Robert Kulicke aluminum frame with forged, seamless corners.

Damian has had a consistent series of solo exhibitions from the 1950s to the present at leading venues, including the Guggenheim, the Pompidou Centre in Paris, MOMA, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Leo Castelli gallery. His work was featured in the Romanian Pavilion at the Venice Biennale in 1993.
