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

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.”

Custom Fine Modern Art Rug

  1. For me, our encounter and the new carpet was a great joy. Working with you all this time was so interesting and nice.

    I am promoting your beautiful carpets.

    All the best, warm greetings also from my wife, who also likes the carpet so much.

  2. The cooperation with Rug Your Life was quite extraordinary for me.
    All I knew was that I wanted a rug with a painting by Sophie Taeuber-Arp. In a long conversation, in which Ms. Ventura contributed her understanding of art, I found the right motif for me: Dada Composition from 1920.
    Several times I was sent photos of the status of the work with photos of the craftsmen; I was there with the creation, so to speak. Upon delivery, it was a pleasure to see the color harmony that was created, which went very well with the floor and art objects. I also found the execution very convincing, because even curved lines were executed very harmoniously. The material of the carpet, New Zealand wool, convinced me. The carpet is very soft and the wool brings the intense colors to a very harmonious appearance thanks to its surface structure.
    In my opinion, the price for an individually designed one-off is really not high. For me personally, the whole process up to the finished carpet was without exaggeration an unforgettable experience. Thank you very much.
