“Proun 4” pendant
Like ingenious “Proun” by El Lissitzky, this suprematist pendant is both flat and voluminous, massive and transparent. Three levels of depth create the dynamic effect, the game of form, light and shadow.
Sterling silver, rhodium plated.
Inlay: anodized aluminum (valiant poppy)
The artist and architect El Lissitsky was the first to figure out how to translate simple and clean forms of abstract art into volume - as they would say today, in 3D. “The canvas has become too small for me,” Lissitsky wrote. - And I created Proun – Project of the statement of new". Proun is abstract painting, wich looks like architectural graphics. This is an equilibrium of geometrical bodies, either standing on a solid foundation, or floating in space. Proun is “a world-building that is capable of self-development. This is an artistic text, leaving room for many perceptions and extensions”.
