Google Doodle is celebrating the 130th birth anniversary of German painter, sculptor, designer and choreographer Oskar Schlemmer. He was associated with the Bauhaus school of art and is most vividly remembered for his “Triadisches Ballet” where the performers are seen converting into geometrical figurines from normal beings.
His ideas were complex and hard to decipher. He infamously rejected the absolute abstract and brought about a sensuous human touch to his near-to-abstract characters and subjects.
Schlemmer vested on the divine architectural aspect of the human body by capturing each and every possible movement into his vast repertoire of art.
Oskar Schlemmer stream of consciousness dwelled in the realm of the human body and the space around it so as to catch the subtle nuances in their “party of form and color”. He described any performance to be “artistic metaphysical mathematics” which is purest in the form of physical aesthetics and not residing much in the cosmos of emotions.
Schlemmer described his themes of work as, “the human figure in space, its moving and stationary functions, sitting, lying, walking, standing” as being “as simple as they are universally valid.” He died on April 13, 1943.
