Chillida: Open-Air Sculptures

The sculptural work of Eduardo Chillida is non-figurative and characterized, in the artist’s own words, by the dialogue between masses and voids of often monumental proportions, elements that he endows with conceptual unity thanks to his mastery of the laws of movement and balance. In this book Carandente, far from restricting himself to commenting on the most visible aspects of the artist’s career, analyzes the conceptual and technical dimensions of his activity, both the individual task of searching and perfecting and the socio-cultural context that acts as a framework to the Basque sculptor’s output. Chillida is undoubtedly one of the most outstanding figures in the sculpture of the second half of the twentieth century.
