Monolithic Beton-Brut Modern Sculpture
During the 1950s, a new architectural style emerged based on stripped down, minimalist constructions that showcase the “bare” building materials and structural elements of the design. Béton brut (raw concrete), or Brutalist architecture, became known for the strength of the materials. Dallas’ very own City Hall is a example.
This Béton brut sculpture is very much a softer version of the Brutalist school. The modern sculpture has the concrete white with the stark strength of the geometric shape, like a jutting iceberg. The touch of the graphite pencil line takes it into the art world. Muted scuffed grays applied to the concrete-white finish of the pottery is part of the The Arrangement Ice Tribal Collection.
