Over past decades, the language of art and product design, connected with the legendary Bauhaus Academy of the 1920s/30s, has been the subject of a number of interpretations and elaborations. Tula Plumi’s artworks are a part of this in that they articulate her take on this art-historical inheritance. Specifically, Plumi is concerned with the “material exercises” that were a significant part of preliminary courses at the Bauhaus. In these, the properties of color, form and material were taught from a craftworking and from a design point of view. In the construction Untitled (Lines and circles series), 2012, smaller pieces of metal are overlaid on two large elements. Lines, circle arcs and circles are cut out of the monochrome sprayed plates. Layered sections, precise cuts and monochrome colored surfaces come together to form a complex and rhythmically structured unified picture, a kind of living, visual musical manuscript. An interplay of living colors and geometric forms creates a choreographed rhythm that extends beyond the boundaries of the object itself. Plumi’s plastic pictures are oscillating between a surface and a real space.
