When you follow an artist over a long periodof time, you have knowledge of the development of his art. First there were the less complicated 2-dimensional works, these were followed by 3 dimensional ones and later these 3 dimensional works were executed as mobiles with some even have complicated movements. My personal favorites are the ones that have images in 2 dimensions and were altered and worked over into an object/work typical for and recognizable as a work by OSSIP. I have been able to buy one of these works from his earlier years at auction. It is a work from 2003 on which a woman is depicted crouching in which the figure has cracks all over, making this , beside the crouching stand, fascinating .
www.ftn-books.com has some art and books on Ossip available.
