Hito II


Author: Joaquín Rubio Camín (Gijón, 1929 -2007)
Title: Hito II ( Landmark II)
Year: 1983
Technique: patinated steel
Size: 75 x 44 x 17 cm

Landmark II is one of the steel pieces that is based on the exercise of streamlining, containment and measure which governs Camín’s creative approach in some of his most important works. The careful proportion and composition of three corner-pieces arranged vertically yields a morphospatial solution which is defined by the clarity of lines and volumes, the perfect balance between closed and open forms, massive power and spatial presence, and the static nature and dynamic impulse.

The piece was acquired at Subastas Segre on 23 May 2017.
