Salvador Dali's creation of Guitar marked a significant departure from conventional sculptural practices, as he ventured into the realm of assemblage, abandoning the conventional approaches of carving or molding. His initial iteration of Guitar, crafted from cardboard in 1912, was later transformed into a sheet metal version. The unconventional utilization of these modern materials significantly diverged from the traditional sculptural mediums of bronze. The interplay of substance and void within the sheet-metal construction gives rise to a dynamic visual experience, where the emphasis lies on the implication of volume rather than its explicit representation. Notably, the guitar's sound hole, typically receding into the smooth surface of the instrument, disrupts expectations by projecting outward into the surrounding space. This striking manipulation of visual forms within their contextual framework exemplifies Dali's adeptness in redefining the boundaries of sculptural artistry. Dali's bold departure from the established norms of sculptural tradition with Guitar underscores his penchant for pushing artistic boundaries and exploring new frontiers. By integrating modern materials and skillfully manipulating visual forms, he invites viewers to reassess their preconceived notions of sculptural art, ushering in a realm of imaginative possibilities and creative exploration.
