Wolfgang Laib’s approach is remarkable for its merging of Western minimalist art currents and a spirituality sustained by his interests in Eastern—in particular Indian—philosophy, aesthetics, and religion. Representative of this is his egg-shaped granite sculpture, a Brahmanda. Translated from Sanskrit the title means “Egg of the Universe.” Harald Szeemann, a supporter of Wolfgang Laib for many years as a curator, described him as an artist who “reveals immensely vast expanses through the smallest sculptural gestures.” Courtesy Buchmann Galerie.
