About the artist: Sophie Taeuber-Arp
“The intrinsic decorative urge should not be eradicated. It is one of humankind’s deep-rooted, primordial urges. Primitive people decorated their implements and cult objects with a desire to beautify and enhance…. it is a sense emanating from the urge for perfection and creative accomplishment.”
Sophie Taeuber-Arp was a Swiss artist and is considered one of the most important artists of concrete art and geometric abstraction of the 20th century. Her sophisticated graphic and textile works are among the earliest Constructivist works. They reflect the interplay between colour and form. She explored the circle as the representation of the cosmic metaphor, the form that contains all others.
She and her husband Jean Arp were involved with the Dada movement and were close friends of artists such as Sonia and Robert Delaunay, Wassily Kandinsky, Joan Miró, and Marcel Duchamp.
Wassily Kandinsky said:
“Sophie Taeuber-Arp expressed herself by means of the ‘colored relief,’ especially in the last years of her life, using almost exclusively the simplest forms, geometric forms.
The forms, by their sobriety, their silence, their way of being sufficient unto themselves, invite the hand, if it is skillful, to use the language that is suitable to it and which is often only a whisper; but often too the whisper is more expressive, more convincing, more persuasive, than the ‘loud voice’ that here and there lets itself burst out.”
