For his fourth project, OV Project is delighted to present a confrontation be- tween the late American painter Ted Stamm (USA, 1944 - 1984) and Duits Modern Design pioneer Gerrit Rietveld (Netherlands, 1888 - 1964).
Founder and major pillar of De Stijl where he met and collaborated with Piet Mondrian and Theo van Doesburg – he has been deeply in nuenced by the ‘New Objectivity’ while is approach aimed for simplicity in construction. In 1918, his Masterpiece the ‘Red Blue Chair’ has been honored for its simplicity, precision and a pure representation of De Stijl group who was constantly looking for harmony through geometry and primary colors. In parallel, the exhibition will feature an overview of shaped canvas and works on paper by Ted Stamm. Often considered as an artist of Monochromatic approach and radical Minimalism, the singular role of shape in his practice has always been present as questioning scale, dimension and impact.
