Cubism

Following the development of my work into simplistic shape and limited form, i began thinking back to previous interest in the Cubist movement and the artists associated.

Largely based in painting, early Cubist artists sought to analyse and dissect figures and objects until they were entirely removed from nature.
Cubism is known for the extensive works of Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque but it continues to influence and have relevance in contemporary art.

Sculptors associated with the movement include Alexander Archipenko and Jacques Lipchitz, whose works depict various fractured forms based in the figurative and material.
