San Francisco based artist Yossi Ben Abu’s background in architecture and design are immediately evident in his innovative and poetic work. His paper works are both abstract and precise at the same time.
By using everyday materials, such as paper, and elevating them, his geometrical elements: squares, pyramids and boxes become somewhat hypnotic and yet strangely organic. “In recent years I have worked primarily with paper-a simple, clean, everyday material. I transform the medium into patterns that can be both precise and abstract. By forcing motion in collections of paper bodies, I can express different feelings visually,” Ben Abu says about his pieces.
Although, he admits, math was never his strong suit in school, his fascination with shapes, patterns, geometry, and structure found an outlet in his perfect geometrical figures. His geometric, clean wall sculptures have captured the imagination of many. By striving for precision and balance, his works express a mathematical beauty of art not often seen in creative spheres.
