« I try to make beautiful objects that are strongly material and that at the same time have on otherwordly appearance, like mental visions.»

By working with the Minimalist theory from the outset, John McCracken (1934-2011) has never denied individual sensibility and the artist’s annual activity in favour of industrial manufacture justified by Minimalist thinking. Both painting and sculpture, the ‘plank ‘ made in spray-lacquered wood is the work that best symbolizes his activity. In his practice, the idea of reflection or highlight has an essential place, for they encompass the environment, and the onlooker becomes aware of space at the same time as he become aware of the object he is looking at.
