Historical Context:
For Cyril Lixenberg, color is an extra dimension; an uncomplicated emphasis on his eloquent use of shape. The work is the product of two vacillating tendencies: one of mental abstraction and the attempt to give it solid form and the other from the perception of the materials being used. The result is an object or image that does not represent anything concrete but is an aesthetic reflection of material, process, and creative mental engagement. Lixenberg lived and worked in Amsterdam where he was a prolific contributor to the contemporary art scene. For many years Lixenberg worked with GVSU, completing sculptural commissions and taking part in lectures centered on contemporary art production.
