Eduardo Chillida Biography

(b San Sebastian, Spain, 1924; d San Sebastian, 2002) Spanish Sculptor. Eduardo Chillida's art is one of timeless grace and seemingly effortless simplicity. Using space as what he described as "a very quick material, so quick that you think there's nothing there" in conjunction with "slow" materials like stone or clay. Chillida's works express an interaction that takes place between the Einsteinian notion of space-time and the tangible and temporal material reality of form. Describing himself as an "architect of the void," Chillida attempted to shape each of these elements so that collectively they express a point of union between them all, a meeting point that is ultimately an expression of the human being's existential position in the world, a totem of identity. Proudly Basque and strongly affiliated with the unique properties of his homeland, Chillida's art blends strength and grace into an articulate expression of a specific sense of place and of a rooted belonging to the world.
