Manuel Felguérez Barra


 Manuel Felguérez Barra (1928 – 2020) was a Mexican abstract artist, part of the Generación de la Ruptura that broke with the muralist movement of Diego Rivera and others in the mid 20th century.
"Painter and sculptor. In the late forties, he studied at the San Carlos Academy in Mexico City. At the beginning of the fifties, thanks to a scholarship from the French government he traveled to Paris where he studied at the Academy de la Grande Chaumier and at the Colarossi Academy. There he perfected his sculptural work with the master Ossip Zadkine, whose work will influence the young Felguérez. In the mid-fifties he became one of the pioneers of the Abstract trend, provoking a true renewal of the Mexican visual arts landscape in the second half of the XX century. Between 1965 and 1990 he developed an intense teaching and research work that took him to Cornell University and Harvard University in the United States. He tought Composition Classes in the National School of Plastic Arts and 1977 he became a researcher at the Institute of Aesthetic Research at UNAM. The work of Felguérez poses a dialectic between abstraction and expression. His paintings articulate geometric figures as squares, triangles, circles or rectangles, that collides with the imprint of an expressive Informalism charged with gestural spontaneity."(durbansegnini.com)

Carel Nicolaas Visser


Carel Nicolaas Visser ( 1928 - 2015) was a Dutch sculptor. He is considered an important representative of Dutch abstract-minimalist constructivism in sculpture.From 1948 until 1949 Visser studied architecture at the Technical University in Delft and subsequently from 1949 until 1951 sculpture at the Royal Academy of Arts, The Hague. After study in England and France, he settled as an independent artist in 1952 in Amsterdam.
Carel Visser is seen as one of the most important constructivist sculptors of the Netherlands. His later work is characterized by the assembly of a variety of materials, such as tires, oil drums, car windows, leather, sheepskin, eggs and so on. He made organized connections, a kind of assemblages, with this so-called great and sometimes small objets trouvés (found objects). Some of his work has been compared to a musical composition in which repetition and variation play an important role.
Around 1960, Visser was focussed on massive closed cube of iron and "slack" cube wire. Visser, among other things, was inspired by nature (plants and animals) which also explains his use of natural materials such as wood, wool, sand, feathers, bones, rope and leather.His works from the period 1975-1985 could be called environments, as opposed to the more sculptural work as the dying horse (about 1949).Wikipedia
