The affinity of the ceramics for the geometric forms was present from the oldest times being expressed especially through the pattern’s character and decorations. The simple geometrical forms like circle, rhombus, square, triangle, waves or spiral are found in the common, universal language of the ceramic decoration beginning with Neolithics, continuing through Middle Ages and persisting even in our contemporary art. The harmony and inner beauty of the geometrical forms generated always an inspiring motif in Art. Either for rational reasons, either because of simple affinity toward geometric forms, yesterday and today’s artists had important contributions with their works inspired from this abstract area of Arts. Unaffected by age, or by the affiliation to an artistic tendency or to another, ceramic works inspired from geometry constantly appeared from the moment when ceramics defined itself as an artistic creation. The Hill Liana Svinţiu Professor - Chair of Ceramics-Glass-Metal, Universitatea de Arte Bucureşti
Works belonging to the Ensemble Social Identity, 1994.
A version where the hexagon was used and also some ellipsoidal curvatures that delimitate the future hill.
The ellipsoides were initially conceived as pure exercise of the grammar of forms. Ellipsoide, porcelain
Drawings that continue the presented idea. Combined techniques- tempera, ink, pastel.
The Hill takes some from these elements but missing the human figure. (traces of its existence still remain). The Habitat is extended at the level of a Hill that contains a geometry of the personal place of the individual who is not present. Center of the activity of the being, is represented by abstract simple forms – circle, half circle, square, on which are superposed elements of older works- identity through imprints that have a tendency to structure the habitat.
