Description:
Lot 612: Joannis Avramidis, Mittlere Figur II, 1963 Description: Signed 'AVRAMIDIS' (punched) and numbered on the foot of the figure. Monogrammed 'A' (punched) on plinth. Cast 1/7 (+0 +PA).Joannis Avramidis' sculptural work is considered one of the outstanding artistic positions of the second half of the 20th century. The quest for the 'absolute figure' is the focus of his oeuvre, for which the artist finds the essential inspiration in classical antiquity and in the early Italian Renaissance. Two eras in which the human proportions define the shape of an ideal, as in the works of Avramidis. This aspect is also evident in the present Bronze 'Mittlere Figur II'. Arranged on a vertical axis, Avramidis emulates curvatures similar to the contours of the human body without specifically depicting them.'The structure is guided by emotion, and the entire process of trying to establish the connection between the inner structure of volumes and their formulation in the harmonious rhythm of intertwined hemispheres and cylinders is determined by the concern to reflect all transitions, all fluctuations of a clearly defined human being. The sensitivity, the fleeting emotions are reflected in the imprint of the absolute form. The sculptures by Avramidis are not pillars, not robots, not blind masks but traces of an existential path; they are poetic testaments of the hardship of life, highlighting a clear conscience.' (Franco Russoli, Für Avramidis, in: Martin F. Hagenmüller i.a. (ed.), Joannis Avramidis, Skulpturen und Zeichnungen, exhib.cat. Schloßgarten und Kunstverein Ludwigsburg, Galerie Ulyssess, Vienna, Stuttgart 1988, p.25). Dimensions: Height 80 cm Medium: Bronze with golden brown patina Date: 1963

Exhibited and published: Trigonpersonale 5, Joannis Acramidis, Plastik, Graphik, Neue Galerie Graz 1974, Abb. 16, Joannis Avramidis. A classic of a contemporary sculpture, National Gallery, Alexandros Santzos Museum, Athens 1997, p. 88 Provenance: Private Collection, London The representation of divinities in human form and, above all, of man himself constituted the central theme of ancient art. This theme was taken up by Christian works of art and has, since the Renaissance, been developed for centuries in an astonishing scope. Goethe opined, \“The main aim of all sculpture... is that the dignity of man be represented within the human image.\” In the art of the 20th century, however, the theme of \“man\” has lost much of its earlier validity. And when \“man\” is still depicted today, then the artistic interest is generally on his subjection and the loss his dignity has incurred. \“Avramidis\” almost 50-year search and struggle for a generally valid form of representation of the human figure is therefore completely unusual for our time. He himself is aware of his isolated position and once said, \“Actual references for my work exist only in antiquity and Italian early Renaissance.\” Raimund Wünsche -from Grieche unter Griechen.

Description:
Description: The plinth with punched signature 'AVRAMIDIS' and numbered. One of 6 casts.Inspired by classical antiquity and Italian renaissance, in his works, Joannis Avramidis is in search of the ideal stature and its proportions. Since his participation in the Venice Biennale in 1962, he is regarded as a classic of European sculpting. Michael Semff describes his works as follows: \“The work by the Greek artist Joannis Avramidis sets standards. It holds its ground as an unshakable block in the art of the second half of the 20th century. He brings together the traditions of artistic expression of a thousand year-old Mediterranean culture where the human figure, his central theme, was radically and newly devised from the inside. In this respect, the system and the stringent principles of the artistic process enforce the elimination of subjective arbitrariness to a large extent. […] Avramidis' utopian notion of an „absolute figure\“ accrues from the constant fight between the \“data\” wrenched from nature and the construction enforced by the idea: drawing and sculpture as an indissoluble interwoven approach to an ideal image of man spanning across time that is to be reconstructed.\” (Michael Semff, Avramidis Skulpturen und Zeichnungen, Munich, 2005, p.21ff)
