$ 25,000
  • Description
    "One divided by One", by Aleksandra Kasuba, black marble mosaic, signed. A versatile environmental artist, Kasuba was born in Ginkunai, Lithuania, 1923 and died in New Mexico, March 5, 2019. She collaborated with furniture designer Vladimir Kagan in the early 1960s, embellishing his designs with tile mosaics. Still very active today with many projects and based in New Mexico, she told us via email in April 2018, that a major retrospective of her life's work was held in the fall of 2019 at the National Gallery in Vilnius, Lithuania.

    "One Divided by One" is from her 1966 breakout show at NYC's Grippi & Waddell Gallery (January 25 to February 12, 1966). The work is minimalist in nature and features a center of two parallel lines moving in opposite directions. Signed Aleksandra Kasuba and dated 1964 on verso. Retains original gallery label. According to her own account, this one-woman show, “Black Marble Mosaics,” at the Grippi Waddell Gallery, opened the doors to the commissions and public installations that followed. A PDF copy of Grippi & Waddell Gallery show is available upon request.

    Below is a short list of her public and private commissions:

    A 208 sq. ft. pebble mosaic for the New York Hilton Hotel, 1963.
    30,000 sq. ft. of tensile fabric (commissioned by the U.S. Air Force for the International Furniture Procurement Exhibit held in Paris in 1981).
    A 4,000 sq. ft. granite wall in the World Trade Center, New York (1986), destroyed in 2001.
