Paul Dibble: The Geometrics - Art Collector

Paul Dibble, Figure of Ease, 2016, cast patinated bronze, 2120 x 290 x 400mm. Courtesy the artist and Gow Langsford, Auckland.

The geometric figures express Paul Dibble’s ongoing interest in the aesthetics of pure forms. They were first produced in the late 90s and in early 2000 and signified a shift from works which had used a more narrative basis of themes. The works are all figurative in content with the human form reduced to simple geometric shapes. Some of the works have straight or bowed props seeming to support the shapes. The mathematical forms give the works a cool surreal elegance yet at the same time the figures are highly gestural, reflecting a strong sense of humanity.
