Lot Essay

'We detect in Arp the profound experience of life, which conceives of creation as an eternal process, as permanent transformation and growth ... This is why Arp's initial forms strike us as being so ready to be transmuted, so filled with inner organic tension' (J. Arp quoted in C. Giedion-Welcker, Jean Arp, London, 1957, pp. xxvii and xxviii).
