Jaume Plensa : The Inner View (Hardcover)
about this item
The Catalan artist Jaume Plensa is considered one of the most important contemporary sculptors in the world. His spectacular and yet meditative sculptures can be seen in public spaces around the globe. At the 2015 Venice Biennale, Jaume Plensa received the Global Fine Art Award for "Best Public Installation" in honor of his contribution at the Basilica di San Giorgio Maggiore. Until the 1990s, the artist was primarily known for his cast iron sculptures. He then started using polyester resin and glass, as well as steel, marble, alabaster, basalt, bronze, and—more recently—wood. However, nontangible "materials" such as light, words, and sound also play an important role in his work.
