Herbert Matter 

Herbert Matter was a Swiss-born American photographer and graphic designer known for utilising photomontage, a process by which seemingly singular images are actually composed using individual photographs that are juxtaposed to create eye-catching designs. 

Matter used photography and typography in ways that were revolutionary at the time of their inception in the 1930′s, owing much to innovations in printing techniques as well as the Surrealist and Dada movements. “A pioneer in his use of abstraction in the graphic arts, Matter often utilized extreme juxtapositions of scale to create dramatic and effective compositions.” 

Highly sought after throughout his career, Matters portfolio includes works for such institutions as Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue, The Guggenheim Museum as well as the Swiss Tourist Office, the latter of which propelled him onto the world stage.

 The sense of action and energy in his compositions have been replicated time and time again, establishing his place as one of the fathers of modern graphic design.

Abraham Palatnik

Abraham Palatnik was born in Natal, Brazil in 1928 to Jewish immigrants from Russia. After moving to Palestine as a child, he returned to Brazil and settled in Rio de Janeiro in 1948.

Upon arriving in Brazil, Palatnik began working with a group of artists who helped run a program with doctors at a psychiatric hospital whereby patients created artworks. The works that were produced would help initiate the ‘Group Frente’ movement of the 1950’s - 60’s in Brazil which embraced the ideals of the Conrete Art movement of geometric abstraction. 

Though not fully appreciated outside of Brazil in his time, Palatnik was a source of inspiration for many artists and movements through the construction of what he called ‘Kinechromatic Devices.’

Composed of lights and industrial materials such as metal, fabric, and wood and positioned somewhere between painting and sculpture, these objects seemed to make lush abstractions lurch into motion when activated. Mário Pedrosa, a preeminent Brazilian art critic of the era, described the works as an attempt to reinvent the Constructivist style of Laszlo Moholy-Nagy’s art, writing that the sculptures were like “frescoes of light destined to animate buildings or walls with the plastic dynamism of artificial light according to the artist’s will and inspiration.”

HERBERT MATTER, MOBILE IN MOTION, 1936

A series of stills depicting the work of Alexander Calder by friend and fellow artist Herbert Matter. These images have given me a fresh perspective on Calder’s work and the infinite possibilities of mobile art in regards to the ways  it is able convey movement. Each movement becomes its own unique design expressing its own distinct energy. Moments in time that can never be reproduced.

GRAPHIC DESIGN - TYPOGRAPHY

After moving shapes around for a bit I came upon the form of a figure that looked instantly familiar and tied in very neatly to my project: 

The Thinker - Auguste Rodin

Possibly one of the most iconic poses in art history.
