Price on Request
Arman Hommage à Yves Klein, 1992 is a striking sculpture composed of a dynamically slices up violin, coated in a rich bright pink pigment and places in a sleek clear case. The thick pigment adorning the wood and metal curves of the instrument give the piece a wonderful tactile richness, endowing the usually smooth and shiny violin with a matte softness. An homage to Yves Klein, a 20th century artist renowned for his magnificent use of pure colors, this work celebrates the beauty of the pink hue in an enticing 3D form. Musical instruments, sliced, adjusted, turned, and sectionalized, were one of Arman's favorite subjects. His Cubist vision of the refined forms of violins, guitars, and cellos produced infallibly eye-catching sculptural pieces, and here is beautifully combined with Klein's monochromatic aesthetics.
Created in 1992, this sliced wood violin, painted and encased in Plexiglas case has the incised signature of Fernandez Arman (Nice, 1928 – New York, 2005) on the surface of the Plexiglas and is numbered from the edition of 99.
