The Evolution of a Four-Legged Table: A Conversation with Nahum Tevet
By Gil Goldfine
From his childhood on a Socialist-Zionist kibbutz to his present studio
workshop in south Tel Aviv, the innovative Israeli sculptor Nahum Tevet
views his world, and the things in it, in a very specific manner. Driven
by an independence of thought and action, he has parlayed a limited
Minimalist ideal into extensive installations and discerning reliefs packed
with geometric forms planted on measured architectonic platforms.
Tevet's most recent projects, on which he has been working for more than
a decade, are both visually explicit and spiritually perplexing--and well
within the canon of Apollonian art.
