BARRY FLANAGAN

01 Dezember 2018 00:00 - 28 April 2019 00:00

In all his works, Barry Flanagan (Prestatyn 1941 – Ibiza 2009) deals with the natural properties of materials and with time-honoured principles of sculpture, such as weight-balance, light-shadow, open-closed, three-dimensional-flat and so on. His sculptures are serious, but also witty and light-hearted and attest to a freedom in his way of thinking.

Light and shadow

Shadow catchers hangs on the wall and consists of nothing more than a few thin pieces of wood and some strips of burlap. Both materials are used in their ‘pure’ state and do what they are ‘naturally’ suitable for. Wood can function as a support, burlap is flexible, it can be hung and also repel or diminish light. With the poetic title Shadow catchers – Flanagan is a great lover of free poetry – he makes clear what this work is about: his research into the infinite possibilities of light and shadow.
