The Third Dimension
From 1976 onwards Osvaldo Bacman tries with essential conviction to express the innermost abstract world of his feelings and emotions by integrating movement and form through an arrangement of colour and a logical organization of the pictorial surface.
From 1986 he has concerned himself with the development of the concept of the third dimension in the depiction of a geometrical abstraction. These works were inspired, in addition to concrete figurative elements, framed surfaces of dynamic lines, precise forms, sharp contrasts of colour and rhythmical movements, by particular attention to volume and space.
“Bacman is not interested in pure visual irritation. Such differentiated works rather impart through the finely fanned evaluations of space the experience of blocked and free-flowing feelings and meditations which move between the cramped Here and Now and Eternity.”
