Geometric sculpture often distorts recognisable shapes, and deconstructs the form to it’s essential elements. Both Vantongerloo and Gormley have created abstracted figurative sculptures, constructed in sharp shapes and angular curves. Jonathan Page works with ceramics to follow this approach, with his piece Geometry depicting a lobster through large and exaggerated shapes. Page’s work blurs the boundaries between sculpture and ceramics to represent nature in a way that is simplified in form, yet complex in structure.
Taking a different approach to abstracting form in geometric sculpture is the work of Marco Markovic. Markovic’s figurative sculptures are formed of plaster, wood and metal, and replace the expected soft curves of the body with defined and pronounced shapes. With Acropolis 698, Markovic responds to Ancient marble sculptures, and distorts the male nude by changing and exaggerating different parts of the body’s anatomy. The sculpture majestically sits on a wooden plinth and invites the viewer to walk around the life-size section of the body, and experience the sculpture from multiple perspectives.
Gareth Griffiths works with steel to create freestanding linear sculptures. Inspired by the futuristic Californian style of architecture in the 50s and 60s, Griffiths uses primary colours and flowing lines to form free-standing works of art. With La Geria, Griffiths utilises the high tensile strength and malleable nature of steel to create a sculpture that appears to be mid-movement, whilst remaining static. Combining motion and minimalism, Griffiths’ pieces are entirely unique. Repetition and positioning are integral to Griffiths’ work, and make for sculptures that are as mesmerising as they are playful.
Geometric sculpture is a form of abstract sculpture that adheres to a sharp, linear and often mathematical approach. The development of geometric sculpture came about in the early 20th century, during a period when artists were beginning to challenge traditional practice. Pioneered by the Cubist movement, specifically by the likes of Pablo Picasso and Alexander Archipenko, artists were turning towards abstract expression as a means of questioning the way we see. Avant-garde artists of the 20th century experimented with shape, medium and structure to create sculptures that were both radical and unique. Geometric sculpture endured, and a minimal approach came into play; from the large-scale spherical sculptures of Max Bill, to the block work of Georges Vantongerloo and the De Stijl movement. Today, geometric sculpture continues to develop, with contemporary artists like Antony Gormley pushing the capabilities of material, technique and construction.
