The imagery of 1950s abstract expressionism investigates and focuses on emotions, meditation and momentary subconscious imagination. Mark Rothko, Mark Tobey, Barnett Newman, but even more so the life-work of Franz Kline, famous for the composed alignment of Asian calligraphy, had a substantial impact on the designer. Kline created a more clinical geometric trend derived from the art of emotions and gestures. The feature of geometry is the alignment of horizontal and vertical lines - sometimes evenly, sometimes haphazardly.
Additionally, the space explorations of the 1950s and ‘60s sparked the collection. Konsanszky found her inspiration in the solar system through stunning NASA pictures. The surface of Mars, Mercury and Earth is formed by meteorites, creating interesting impact craters. The rich variety of petrogenesis further contributed to the collection’s ambiance and vision.
The Beyond Controversy collection expresses at once our eternal curiosity towards the boundless and incomprehensible cosmos and the all-engulfing expressionism of our inner world.
