Lygia Pape - Ttéia n. 7


Brazilian modernist Lygia Pape might be one of the great unrecognised masters of light.

Walk into the back room of Hauser & Wirth gallery, in London, and you’ll find a criss-crossing set of spotlit glittering wires in an otherwise pitch-black space. They intersect and clash, like columns of light frozen in a moment. They make you feel like you’re looking at a real-life, giant, physical version of a great abstract painting – it’s modernism made real. It’s light, captured perfectly.

A must!
