Jankovič, Jozef / Landscape VIII
wood, metal, copper, wax, 42 × 42 × 45 cm
This sculpture belongs to a series entitled Landscapes – and like another of Jankovič’s works, Landscape III, it consists of a layered base on which a sculptural motif is mounted. Some works in the series – such as Landscape III (1980) and Landscape X (1984) – feature typical fragments of human figures, while in Landscape VIII Jankovič develops the motif of stylized trees. This piece exemplifies Jankovič’s return to small-scale sculptures; some of these small works were later developed into monumental pieces situated in public spaces.
