Sensual Form

Francesca Vannucci

THIS IS HOW WE WANT TO LIVE… SURROUNDED BY CONSTANTIN BRANCUSI’S OBJET D’ART, MOVEMENT AND EMOTION IN BEAUTIFULLY SCULPTED FIGURES.  A GLIMPSE INTO HIS STUDIO IN THE 15TH ARRONDISSEMENT, PARIS, HOME TO THE ICONIC ABSTRACT SCULPTURES, AND TO THE RIGHT, ONE OF HIS MORE CONTROVERSIAL PIECES - A PORTRAIT OF PRINCESS X.

Le Corbusier

Francesca Vannucci

A CONTROVERSIAL ARTIST AND ARCHITECT WHO PUSHED BOUNDARIES WITH REVOLUTIONARY THEORIES ON HOW MODERN LIFE SHOULD LOOK. INFLUENCED BY THE TIMELESS BEAUTY OF ANCIENT GREEK ARCHITECTURE AND THE PRACTICALITY OF THE MODERN MACHINE, LE CORBUSIER ENVISIONED A FUTURE WORLD WHERE NEED INFORMED STRUCTURE, AND SIMPLICITY, PURITY AND FUNCTION REIGNED.

Le Corbu Collage_Fotor

A BUILDING AS UNPREDICTABLE AND CHARISMATIC AS ITS CREATOr, NOTRE DAME DU RONCHAMP. A SPIRITUAL DWELLING FOR THE MODERN AGE, BEAUTIFULLY SCULPTURAL AND VERY UNUSUAL FOR THE FAMOUS ARCHITECT.

OUR ABSTRACT SCULPTURES, A PAIRING IN FRENCH PLASTER THAT FIT TOGETHER. THE UNIQUE FORMS RECALL THE ICONIC CHURCH.

The Science of Art

Francesca Vannucci

PRECISION AND OPTICAL ILLUSION IN VICTOR VASARELY’S GRAPHIC OP ART. A FEELING OF MOVEMENT AND SHIFTING PERSPECTIVE IN ITS ABSTRACT GEOMETRY. VV 3_Fotor

VASARELY BELIEVED THAT SCIENCE REACHES THE LIMITS OF WHAT CAN BE EXPLAINED, AND THROUGH ART HE COULD MAKE IT VISUALLY COMPREHENSIBLE.

VV RB CUBE_Fotor

A GAME OF SHADOW AND LIGHT IN SOME OF THE EARLY WORKS OF VICTOR VASARELY… HE EXPLORED THE POPULAR STYLES OF SURREALISM AND CUBISM BEFORE DECLARING THEM A ‘FALSE ROUTE’.

VV 9_Fotor_Fotor_Collage_Fotor

MATHEMATICS, ARCHITECTURE AND ART COLLIDE IN THE WORK OF AMERICAN ARTIST SOL LEWITT AND HUNGARIAN VICTOR VASARELY. THE SIMILARITIES ARE UNDENIABLE - MODULAR FORM, THE SIMPLE OPEN CUBE, AN ESSENTIAL ‘BUILDING BLOCK’ FOR SOME OF THEIR MOST ICONIC CREATIONS. THE STRUCTURES VARY IN SIZE, SHAPE AND MATERIALS, BUT BOTH ARTISTS WERE DEVELOPING THEIR TECHNIQUES DURING THE SAME PERIOD, AND BECAME PIONEERS OF A MODERN, DIGITAL AESTHETIC.

“THE NARRATIVE OF SERIAL ART WORKS MORE LIKE MUSIC THAN LIKE LITERATURE.” ~ SOL LEWITT

Louise Bourgeois

Francesca Vannucci

ONE OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL FIGURES IN 20TH CENTURY ART, LOUISE BOURGEOIS CHANNELED ALL THE CONFLICTING FORCES OF FEMININE NATURE INTO HER WORK. INTIMACY AND POWER, INTENSITY AND TENDERNESS, HER SCULPTURES WERE EMOTIONAL EXPRESSIONS OF SENSUALITY.

LOUISE BOURGEOIS AND SCULPTURE

IN THE LATE 1990’S LOUISE BOURGEOIS CREATED MAMAN, THE LARGE SCALE SPIDER SCULPTURE THAT BECAME HER MOST FAMOUS WORK. A TRIBUTE TO HER MOTHER, IT IS, AT ONCE, DELICATE AND OMINOUS, PROTECTIVE AND FEARSOME. THE SPIDER THEME FIRST APPEARED AS A DRAWING IN 1947… 

“THE SPIDER IS A REPAIRER. IF YOU BASH INTO THE WEB OF A SPIDER, SHE DOESN’T GET MAD. SHE WEAVES AND REPAIRS IT.” ~ LOUISE BOURGEOIS 

MAMAN COLLAGE

HER BODY OF WORK CONTAINS A PASSION FOR PSYCHOLOGY, WITH CREATIONS THAT DEPICT A COMPLEX TAPESTRY OF EVOCATIVE MEMORIES.
