Arp, Jean (Hans) Painting - Human Concretion
Human Concretion is a Biomorphic sculpture in marble, created by the
remarkable sculptor, painter and poet, Jeans Arp. Biomorphic forms of art
derive from the organic shapes in the nature. Such creations will induce
creative thinking in the minds of those who look at this piece of art.
Jeans Arp was born in France and was associated with various
revolutionary art movements such as Dada, Surrealism and Cubism.
The spontaneous creativity of the human sub conscious mind leads
an artist in designing this kind of forms. Moreover, Jeans Arp believed
that art was a natural generation of form – a fruit that grows in a man.
Hence it will have a shape and it will occupy space.
Through this sculpture, Arp wants to convey that thought and
right reasoning is most important for survival of the human race.
He laments that today man is deprived of silence due to machines
and noice making devices. The environment is distracting humanity
from the essence of life, contemplation and meditation.
The freestanding sculpture of Jeans Harp was the outcome of his strong
desire to bring humanity back from this disastrous noisy world. This
sculpture inspires man to find a quite place here, think and find the
meaning of life for ourselves. Through this creation, Jeans Harp quietly
sends the message – “look and learn”.
