NOT Ex-Library. [Excerpt from Bio] Few have rendered in words their responses to the sculpture of Michael Lekakis. In his long, productive and solitary artistic life, he has claimed our attention only by attending exclusively tohis project. Those few who have seen, and replied in written commentaries, have often argued about whether Lekakis, born in 1907, is truly a "modern" or if he is the issue of some older culture, ill-adapted to the modern idiom,But of course, he is modern. His project is among the most serious of all modern projects?to attain, through long, thoughtful and concentrated work, a sense of cosmos. Paul Klee, surely a modern, declared, "Every seed is cosmos," and he always began with the seed. Lekakis knows the seed, the root, the branch, and,like Klee, has followed his bent. His credo, partly expressed in a 1969 statement, must be considered:Creation is not the result of what we want to do. It is the result of the whole cosmic process . if one approaches it right, he can give it form. the only thing that prompts this kind of vision is love . I mean the whole of love, eras and agape, the divine and human reconciled, as the Greeks knew it. this is what I am trying to do, to reconcile man and the cosmos . but I don't have any dispensation for this, I think everyone has it. it is a matter of becoming sensitized, of preparing oneself to let it happen. we must come to the point where we can soar beyond ourselves, to be free of ourselves, where we are no longer the victims of our own stupidity, emotions and prejudices . .

About this Item: Gallery, Athens, 1980. Soft cover. Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. Softcover gallery Athens gallery retrospective, haggard looking artist photograph, Greek text but picture titles inked in English, rare and early item. According to one expert Mr. Lekakis reached maturity in the late 1940's and early 50's. His forms, which sometimes suggest eccentric trees or bulbous root formations, are biomorphic and asymmetrical, with a definite 50's flavor. He is not as good as David Smith, but he is way ahead of artists such as Seymour Lipton and Herbert Ferber. Unlike Mr. Smith, Mr. Lekakis's roots aren't in Cubism but in the full, volumetric forms of Brancusi, which are frequently evoked in his sculpture and, more derivatively, in the stacked, subtly flared chunks of wood that often constitute his bases. From the library of B. H. Friedman (he has inked the titles in of the biographers and experts on Lekakis' art. Inscribed/ Signed by VIP othe. Seller Inventory # 113989
