Historical Context:
Cyril Lixenberg currently lives and works in Amsterdam where he is a prolific contributor to the contemporary art scene. For many years Lixenberg has worked with Grand Valley State University, completing sculptural commissions and taking part in lectures centered on contemporary art production. Lixenberg's artistic style comes from classical modern art from the mid-20th century and his portfolio consists of silk screen prints, metal sculpture and monumental work. In his work, Lixenberg's primary concern is exploring the dimensionality of shapes and how they interact. Color becomes an extra dimension, an uncomplicated emphasis on his eloquent use of shape.
