Antoni Tàpies

Antoni Tàpies created a visual language inspired by a wide range of sources that coalesce into a complex fusion of materials, gestures, and symbols. His explorations of Surrealist imagery early in his career served as the foundation for an ongoing investigation of the nature of physical objects and their materiality. Tàpies’ work ties into his extensive personal experience and history, as well as that of his native Spain, specifically Catalonia. His use of tangible materials for making art emphasize physical and spiritual transformations that are evoked through signs and symbols drawn from both Eastern and Western cultures.
