Mark Hachem gallery is delighted to present a survey of sculptures by artist Alfred Basbous (1924 - 2006).
A pioneer of Modernist sculpture, Basbous drew upon the influence of Jean Arp, Constantin Brâncuși and Henry Moore to create stone and bronze sculptures of often monumental proportions.
The exhibition brings together a series of sculptures that demonstrate Basbous' exploration of the relationship between form and material.
Basbous was born in Rachana, 15 km from Byblos, Lebanon, and was a key contributor towards the development of Modernism in the region during the second half of the twentieth century. He sought to express form in its purest, most unadulterated conception. He developed a sculptural language, experimenting with figurative and abstracted elements of the human figure, in particular the female body, in combination with organic lines.
This exhibition features predominantly abstract works in bronze.
