Elemental

This series was created in celebration of the centenary of Bauhaus.

The art school founded by Walter Gropius in Weimar, Germany, in 1919, had a major impact on art, architecture, and design in Western Europe, Canada and the United States long after it closed. One of its main objectives was to unify art, craft, and technology, leading to the “fine arts” being rethought as the “visual arts”.

In these pieces I seek to illustrate the most important Bauhaus design principals, emphasizing functionality through radically simplified geometric forms, the use of primary colours and the absence of ornamentation.
