€ 7.000 – 9.000

A particularly tender and at the same time dynamic work by Gaïtis, with symbolic status, reflective power, artistic intelligence, and design dexterity. Subtly political, with the central oversized form of the fragile flower surrounded by a gathering of exressionless, mute, rigid and tragically identical figures. In color contrast with the background he juxtaposes his black and white figure on a paradoxically smaller scale than the flower. The forms-caricatures-subjects and their geometric dressings are reduced to a means of irony and social criticism. The strong contours combined with the dynamic function of the line structure the volumes and hold this magnificent composition so masterfully.
