Chihuly

I’ve been a fan of Dale Chihuly for a while now, so felt incredibly lucky to be at his exhibition this weekend, I was awed from beginning to end. As a pioneer, he has single-handedly revolutionized the art of blown glass, moving it into the realm of large-scale sculpture. In establishing the use of glass in this way, inherently ‘a fragile but also magical material’ Dale, created a vehicle for installations and environmental art projects that can stand the hands of time.

He’s really a little wonderful.

The chains that bind humanity

Young-Deok Seo makes a statement about the repetitive, monotonous, machine-like way we often walk through life. Using chains the Seoul based artist welds figurative sculptures that are purposefully unfinished as a way to express the “incomplete nature of modern day humans”. Amaaaaaaaaaaaaazing!

Martha Winters Creates

I recently saw Martha’s work at an exhibition and was mesmerised. She explores her obsession with geometry and produces these unique sculptures perfect for the home or residential; internal or external use. Speaking a visual language so fluently, she focuses on reduced and economical form and hones in on her fascination with systems, repetition and order.

geometry——patterns——landscape = art.

Expansion

Paige Bradley’s work is full of dichotomies: both the beautiful and the ugly, the liberated and the contained, the falling and the floating. But every time I see her ‘Expansion’ sculpture, I’m re-captivated. It is of a beautiful woman seeking inner piece but fractured and bleeding with light. “From the moment we are born, the world tends to have a container already built for us to fit inside: a social security number, a gender, a race, a profession,” says Bradley. “I ponder if we are more defined by the container we are in than what we are inside. Would we recognize ourselves if we could expand beyond our bodies?” – It is definitely one of the most striking pieces I’ve seen in recent times.

‘Mermaid’ by Oliver Voss

Interesting —– Oliver Voss created this sculpture of a ‘Mermaid’ which will remain on Alster lake in Hamburg until August 12th, the four-metre-high sculpture dubbed “Riesen-Nixe” (grand mermaid) or “Badenixe” (bathing beauty) displays the head and knees of the sculpture – a little weird if you ask me, a mermaid with knees? And ungraceful knees at that! Err nice.
