YEP, so isses. Karl Dietz


By James Pearson

Constantin Brancusi is one of the greatest of all sculptors, and a key sculptor of the modern era, along with Auguste Rodin and Pablo Picasso. Brancusi's influence can be seen in a wide range of Western sculptors, including Donald Judd, Carl Andre, Henry Moore, Jean Arp, Barbara Hepworth, Minimalists and land artists. This new book studies the religious and mythical dimensions of Constantin Brancusi's distinctive sculptural forms, the 'eggs', 'fishes', 'heads' and 'columns'. His central quest was for the 'essence of things', which resulted in purifying a form until only the essence was left. It was Constantin Brancusi's project to strip away the detritus that had accumulated around sculpture, Henry Moore said, and to offer the pure, simple shape. What Brancusi did was 'to concentrate on very simple shapes, to keep his sculpture, as it were, one-cylindered, to refine and polish a single shape to a degree almost too precious.' As well as being a sculptor, Constantin Brancusi was also an accomplished photographer. Quite a few artists (not all of them sculptors) have expressed for Brancusi's photographs, and the way he would set up his sculptures in his studio and photograph them at particular times of the day, when the lighting was just right. They are early examples of installation art (and some of the best, too). Andy Goldsworthy said he admired how Brancusi created the right conditions in his studio so that his work 'comes alive at a particular time of the day as the light momentarily touches it'. For Goldsworthy, Brancusi's works were at their best when they were arranged by the sculptor in his studio and photographed. Somehow, it wasn't quite the same when they were displayed in modern art museums (such as the Pompidou Centre in Paris or the Museum of Modern Art in Gotham, which have important Brancusi pieces). Fully illustrated, including many photos of Constantin Brancusi's studio in Paris, Brancusi’s works in museums in New York, Washington and L.A., forerunners and influences, prehistoric art, and the art of his contemporaries. REVISED AND UPDATED, WITH NEW ILLUSTRATIONS With bibliography and notes. ISBN 9781861713384. 180 pages. This new (4th) edition has been revised. www.crmoon.com


The art of Constantin Brancusi never ceases to fascinate and inspire, and it always seems fresh, as if it had been created five minutes ago, no matter how many times you look at it. When you encounter a Brancusi sculpture in a museum, it pops out, clear and direct; there is simply nothing else like Brancusi’s art in history. I have tried to explore the key elements of Brancusi’s art, and the important events in his development as a sculptor. I have also included comparisons with other artists of the period, and also how Brancusi’s art has influenced many subsequent artists.

Here are 7 powerful lessons from the book Goodbye, Things: The New Japanese Minimalism by Fumio Sasaki: 1. Material possessions do not bring happiness. Sasaki argues that material possessions do not bring happiness. In fact, they can often lead to stress and anxiety. When we focus on acquiring and maintaining possessions, we lose sight of the things that are truly important in life. 2. Minimalism is not about deprivation. Minimalism is not about depriving yourself of the things you love. It is about being intentional about the things you own and using them to support your values and goals. 3. Decluttering is a liberating experience. When you declutter your home, you are not just getting rid of physical possessions. You are also getting rid of the emotional baggage that comes with them. Decluttering can help you to feel more free and at peace. 4. Less is more. When you have less, you have more time, energy, and money to focus on the things that are truly important to you. 5. Minimalism is a lifestyle choice. Minimalism is not just about decluttering your home. It is also about living a more intentional and meaningful life. Minimalism can help you to focus on the things that are truly important to you and to live a more fulfilling life. 6. Minimalism is not a one-size-fits-all solution. There is no one right way to be a minimalist. What matters most is that you find a level of minimalism that works for you and that supports your values and goals. 7. Minimalism is a journey, not a destination. Minimalism is a journey, not a destination. It is a process of learning and growing. As you declutter your home and simplify your life, you will learn more about yourself and what is truly important to you. Goodbye, Things is a thought-provoking and inspiring book that can help you to live a more intentional and meaningful life. It is a book that I highly recommend to everyone.
