Leroy Lamis
Artist
leroy lamis
Leroy Lamis (1925-2010) was a sculptor, art teacher and digital artist. Among his best known works is a series of cubes made of plexiglass created between 1962 and 1978 called Costructions. Lamis comes to the composition of this series of sculptures in the study of materials and technologies, drawing inspiration from the principles of Constructivism and artists such as Naum Gabo, Antoine Pevsner, Richard Lippold and Ludwig Mies van der Rhoe.

The study of Lamis was always focused on the pursuit of perfection, and the juxtaposition between the sheets of acrylic translucent, opaque and characterized by different bright colors is transformed into a new perspective on space that changes depending on the lighting they are submitted to the sculptures.

The author's works are strongly imbued with a positivist philosophy typical of the sixties and the period of recovery after the Second World War: a blind faith in progress and the development of technologies. The vision revived from the cubes is the cultural and political malleability of this period that allows the creation of avant-garde art such as that Lamis is part.
