Themes by Winnie

1.) Tony Cragg

a British-born sculptor/ artist.
Cragg's sculptures possess a strong sense of movement as though energised by physical charges or currents.
early works are made from found materials and later, Cragg used more traditional materials, such as wood, bronze and marble, often making simple forms from them, such as test tube.
His work has changed over time but the underlying concept of creating a whole from a number of smaller items remains.
There is this idea that sculpture is static, or maybe even dead, but he feel absolutely contrary to that. He wants that material to have a dynamic, to push and move and grow.

2.) Ludwig Mies van der Rohe
a German-American architech

strived towards an architecture with a minimal framework of structural order balanced against the implied freedom of free-flowing open space.

known for his use of the aphorisms "

less is more" and "God is in the details''.

Mies attempted to create contemplative, neutral spaces through an architecture based on material honesty and structural integrity.

life dedicated to the idea of a universal, simplified architecture
