SOREL ETROG "LINK HEAD STUDY - BLUE" WC, 1967
Sorel Etrog's "links" are rich in symbolism and highly ambiguous.
These "links" first appear in his drawings in 1964 quickly becoming a consistent element in his oeuvre, both in two-dimensions and in sculpture, for the rest of the decade and beyond.
Do these "links" represent internal strife? Or do they suggest that individuality and intellect are comprised of essential "linked" experiences?
While they were titled and identified as heads, it is easy to see beyond this and appreciate the works as abstraction.
This work, while sold individually, has a spouse or sibling (scroll to the bottom or click here). While we are not certain they were created at the same time, Cavair20 has framed them identically and they create a perfect union when hung alongside each other.
Sorel Etrog (1933 - 2014) is arguably Canada's most famous sculptor. His work can be found in numerous museum and private collections including the Tate, the AGO and LACMA.
His public sculptures can be found on iconic corners in Toronto, Montreal, Israel and beyond.
Etrog was elected a member of the Order of Canada in 1994 and two years later became a Chevalier of Ordre des Arts et des Lettres in France.
The Art Gallery of Ontario organized a major retrospective of his work that ran during 2013.
