Dan Flavin

Untitled (to Barnett Newman) two
Dan Flavin was an American artist and pioneer of Minimalism, best known for his seminal installations of light fixtures. His illuminated sculptures offer a rigorous formal and conceptual investigation of space and light, wherein the artist arranged commercial fluorescent bulbs into differing geometric compositions. “I like art as thought better than art as work,” he once said. “I’ve always maintained this. It’s important to me that I don’t get my hands dirty. It’s not because I’m instinctively lazy. It’s a declaration: art is thought.”

דן פלבין היה אמן אמריקאי וחלוץ המינימליזם, שנודע בעיקר בזכות התקנותיו הראשונות של גופי תאורה. הפסלים המוארים שלו מציעים חקירה צורנית וקונספטואלית קפדנית של חלל ואור, ובו האמן סידר נורות פלורסנט מסחריות לקומפוזיציות גיאומטריות שונות. “אני אוהב אמנות כמו מחשבה טוב יותר מאשר אמנות כמו עבודה”, אמר פעם. “תמיד שמרתי על זה. חשוב לי שלא אלכלך את הידיים שלי. זה לא בגלל שאני עצלן אינסטינקטיבית. זו הצהרה: אמנות היא מחשבה. “

ダンフラビンはアメリカ人アーティストであり、ミニマリズムのパイオニアでした。 彼の照らされた彫刻は、空間と光の厳密な形式的および概念的な調査を提供し、アーティストは商業用の蛍光灯を異なる幾何学的構成に配置しました。 「アートは仕事よりアートの方がいいと思う」と彼はかつて言った。 「私はいつもこれを維持してきました。 私は手を汚さないことが重要です。 私が本能的に怠惰だからではありません。 それは宣言です。芸術は考えられています。」

Dan Flavin était un artiste américain et pionnier du minimalisme, surtout connu pour ses installations phares de luminaires. Ses sculptures lumineuses offrent une investigation formelle et conceptuelle rigoureuse de l’espace et de la lumière, dans laquelle l’artiste a arrangé des ampoules fluorescentes commerciales en différentes compositions géométriques. «J’aime mieux l’art en tant que pensée que l’art en tant qu’œuvre», a-t-il dit un jour. «J’ai toujours maintenu cela. Il est important pour moi de ne pas me salir les mains. Ce n’est pas parce que je suis instinctivement paresseux. C’est une déclaration: l’art est pensé. »

Dan Flavin war ein amerikanischer Künstler und Pionier des Minimalismus, der vor allem für seine wegweisenden Installationen von Leuchten bekannt war. Seine beleuchteten Skulpturen bieten eine strenge formale und konzeptionelle Untersuchung von Raum und Licht, wobei der Künstler kommerzielle Leuchtstofflampen in unterschiedlichen geometrischen Kompositionen arrangierte. “Ich mag Kunst als Gedanken besser als Kunst als Arbeit”, sagte er einmal. “Ich habe das immer beibehalten. Es ist mir wichtig, dass ich mir nicht die Hände schmutzig mache. Es liegt nicht daran, dass ich instinktiv faul bin. Es ist eine Erklärung: Kunst ist Denken. “

Dan Flavin è stato un artista americano e pioniere del minimalismo, meglio conosciuto per le sue installazioni fondamentali di lampade. Le sue sculture illuminate offrono una rigorosa indagine formale e concettuale dello spazio e della luce, in cui l’artista ha disposto lampadine fluorescenti commerciali in diverse composizioni geometriche. “Mi piace l’arte come pensiero più che l’arte come lavoro”, ha detto una volta. “L’ho sempre sostenuto. Per me è importante non sporcarmi le mani. Non è perché sono istintivamente pigro. È una dichiarazione: l’arte è pensiero. “

STAR, INFINITE, DIMENSION, AND ELECTRON

John McCracken’s work embodies a threshold of physical matter and infinite mind/space. In his own words, this ‘character,’ of his work has been indefinable and difficult to write about as an integral whole. Typically referred to as one of the leading West Coast counterparts to the Minimalist regime of Donald Judd, Carl Andre, Robert Morris, Dan Flavin, Sol Lewitt and Robert Bladen, McCracken’s work extends the architecture of Minimalism, complicates the surface of simulated or real machine production, and reflects a mysticism of transcendence.

Hybe

Light Tree: Interactive Dan Flavin
HYBE’s Light Tree: Interactive Dan Flavin re-illuminates the minimalist fluorescent light tubes of Dan Flavin from the 1960s, through digital technology. Experimenting with light and its effect, Flavin explored artistic meaning in relationships between light, situation, and environment. The readymade fluorescent light fixtures he used created space divided and adjusted by light and composition, offering a newly structured space with light. HYBE’s work expands the logic of Flavin by reinforcing the physical property of light through interactive media. It presents an escape from traditional lighting, as light and color changes when touched by viewers. Lighting here is divided into front and back, and colors are programmed to maintain complementary colors. The front lighting constantly interacts with colors on a back wall through visual contrast and mixture. A random change and diffusion of light with the involvement of viewers provokes tension extending and segmenting space, turning space into a forum for emotional perceptual experience.

Regine Schumann

Regine Schumann is a minimalist artist who works with Light Art, initially inspired by Color Field Painting and artists as Mark Rothko, Donald Judd and Dan Flavin. Schumann’s boxes and installations are made of acrylic colour plates especially produced for her. Her work is more than just Concrete Art. Conceptualized as emotive spaces, Schumann’s colour– lled light rooms provoke intense feelings of something otherworldly. Her minimalistic approach affects everything from her choice of materials to the way she plays with form and colour.

SHIRO KURAMATA

Shiro Kuramata’s approach to designing objects reflects the atmosphere of innovation in postwar Japan. By 1970, Kuramata had introduced alternative materials such as acrylic and glass into his furniture, which played on traditional ideas of materiality and form.Transparency, the appearance of weightlessness, and a Minimalist vocabulary quickly became his signature aesthetic. In 1976, Kuramata designed Glass Chair. Its reductivist and planar form reflects his interest in geometry as well as the effect of light as it transforms and illuminates the glass. Kuramata, like many of his Japanese contemporaries, looked to Western culture for inspiration. In particular, the sculptures of Donald Judd and Dan Flavin influenced Kuramata’s furniture designs of the 1970s, such as Glass Chair.
