San Francisco based artist Yossi Ben Abu background in architecture and design are immediately evident in his innovative poetic work. His work is both abstract and precise at the same time. He explores new techniques and a new vision for art.
By using everyday materials and elevating them, his geometrical elements: squares, pyramids and boxes become somewhat hypnotic and yet strangely organic. As an artist his study of pattern, shape, placement and form, through the use of precision cut geometrical shapes made from paper or porcelain, explores nonverbal ways to express feelings, emotions and desires.
The artwork in the “Elements” collection is made from thousands of handmade cut and folded small alveolate paper forms, exposing different proportions of black and white surfaces to create a natural or geometrical monochromatic pattern.
