Gyora Novak


Gyora Novak is a self-taught painter and sculptor who has lived in Israel, England, France and the United States but first showed his art work in New York City during the 1960s. His sculptures at first seem reminiscent of the abstract and Minimalist art popular in New York but also draw from European Neo-Plastic and Bauhaus influences. Links was exhibited at the Whitney Museum Sculpture Annual in 1967 and consists of repeated modular units carefully crafted out of wood and lacquered in black. The sculpture can be displayed in various positions and can move with the air to reflect light.
