ART OPENING: Henry Moore: Wunderkammer—Origin of Forms @GagosianLondon Monday February 9th 2015

The observation of nature is part of an artist’s life, it enlarges his form-knowledge, keeps him fresh and from working only by formula, and feeds inspiration…I have found principles of form and rhythm from the study of natural objects such as pebbles, rocks, bones, trees, plants… There is in Nature a limitless variety of shapes and rhythms…from which the sculptor can enlarge his form-knowledge experience.

—Henry Moore
