SOREL ETROG "AMSTERDAM" LITHOGRAPH, 1978
Was Sorel Etrog inspired by M.C. Escher's (1898-1972) impossible architectural creations?
Etrog's "Hingescapes" were similarly highly intricate, rich in metaphor and a fascinating challenge for the eye to follow.
Etrog began this series in 1970's; realizing these elaborate mechanical/architectural forms in a variety of mediums; drawings, multiples and sculptures.
This is a particularly impressive example. The design was conceived for a poster in Amsterdam but created as a limited edition lithograph.
Sorel Etrog (1933 - 2014) is arguably Canada's most famous sculptor. His work can be found in numerous museum and private collections including the Tate, the AGO and LACMA.
His public sculptures can be found on iconic corners in Toronto, Montreal, Israel and beyond.
