François Morellet: Blown Up Tapas

This catalogue accompanies the 1 May — 14 July 2013 François Morellet exhibition at Ikon Gallery.

Born in Cholet, France, Morellet received no formal artistic training and taught himself to paint, his early works of the 1940s marked by semi-figurative painting and sculpture. Later, in the 1950s, he turned to abstract art, heralding a prolific and lengthy career characterised by simple geometric forms encompassing drawing, painting, sculpture and installation. Often using systems or rules to create compositions, Morellet’s work turns away from the conventional notions of inspired mark-making which are supposed to signify fine art, and it is this sensibility that made him susceptible to tapa.
