Mental Block #1
It's not every day when you find a work of fine art that would function in most interior designs schemes, but we found this 1964 painted wood sculpture Mental Block #1 and think it will be one of those goes-anywhere pieces. With the addition of a simple glass top, it’s the perfect side table.
The work is by Edward Movitz, an under- the-radar modern artist, an abstract expressionist whose background includes Tufts, Harvard, and Massachusetts College of Art. He has actively exhibited between 1959 - 1992 in multiple North eastern galleries and institutions.
Made of painted wood, the sculpture has multiplies of small cubes with varying angles joined together in an early prototype of a Rubik’s Cube. It's signed in ink by the artist on the base.
We think this piece is versatile and can go almost anywhere. Turn it into a smart, conversational drinks table. Put this sculpture on a console table or floor. It's 16 x 15 inches and can be used in many settings. It would be a great addition to any modernist collection.
