Eli Bornstein:
Artist in Focus

Eli Bornstein is best known for his structurist reliefs, rooted in a tradition of early 20th-century geometric abstraction. Bornstein encourages viewers to slow down in order to experience the subtle nuances of colour as it responds to the light around it, and the individual forms as they shift as the viewer’s position changes. This exhibition looks at Eli Bornstein’s early works on paper, tracing his development through several key works in the collection.

Artist

Eli Bornstein has played an important role at both Remai Modern and its predecessor, the Mendel Art Gallery. He was the first artist featured in a solo exhibition at the Mendel in the 1960s and, in 2017, his work Quadraplane Structurist Relief, No. 15 II, was part of the Remai Modern’s inaugural exhibition Field Guide. Bornstein donated the piece to the museum’s collection.
