No. 6 / Between Dimensions Edition
Lines connect individual points and the edges of the paper in this print to mark out a series of intersecting abstract shapes. Geometric drawings were crucial to Stanislav Kolíbal’s exploration of the instability and relativity of form, which he extended into constructed sculptural works. Born in 1925 in what was then Czechoslovakia, Kolíbal is recognised as a key figure in the development and reconsideration of minimalism and conceptual art in the Czech Republic.
This print is part of a portfolio published to coincide with the exhibition Between Dimensions at the Curwen Gallery, London in 1990. Kolíbal was one of eight artists selected by Mel Gooding to contribute to the exhibition and portfolio, which also featured work by Adam Barker-Mill, Michael Kidner, Ian Tyson, John Carter, Christine Hatt, Alan Johnston and Gary Woodley.
