DS Masselink Abstraction 1 Machine Woven Rug
Eugene Masselink (1910-1962) came to the Taliesin Fellowship in 1933 with a degree in art and a desire to learn from Frank Lloyd Wright. He was one of Wright’s earliest apprentices at the Taliesin Fellowship. He soon became indispensable to Wright and acted not only as his personal secretary for over twenty years but also his designated muralist. He developed his own unique graphic style, using abstract natural forms, which was very compatible with Wright’s designs and philosophy. He experimented with abstract line drawing studies using the three tools Wright used to create his designs- the T-square, the compass, and the triangle.
Known as abstract pattern studies, the exercises developed by Masselink and others in the early years at Taliesin were produced through a process by which an overall natural form was graphically reduced to an assemblage of geometric shapes and typically set onto an orthogonal or angular grid.
