:thanks contemporary art daily this is project that I call: must have. Joyce Pensato @ Friedrich Petzel is chaotic, modern, regular trashy installation, stormy life mixed with abstract colors flying around as traces. the interesting part is my mickey, I love Mickey. probably Joyce is thinking about a lot also. this is a model of super fake society, are we all becoming riots. mice ready to go for a shopping and by daily dose of life?

:wooden dreams, surreal roots are born_

.

:I saw few sculptures, installations during d past few months of d last year and I’m pretty interested in his work. We’ll see works from Henrique Oliveira born ‘73, Sao Paolo..

.

.

:I will not even try to explain what he want to express with this works, how hi use d material, where he find it, all of that u’ll hear in this short presentation from him where he discusses his work with Rice Gallery student attendants.
.

.

:from d gallery we read:

Oliveira uses tapumes, which in Portuguese can mean “fencing,” “boarding,” or “enclosure,” as a title for many of his large-scale installations. The term makes reference to the temporary wooden construction fences seen throughout the city of São Paulo where Oliveira lives. It also refers to the weathered wood Oliveira uses as the primary material in his installations.

:visit Henrique Oliveira’s websitehere.

:I like megalomaniac stuff, bit deconstructive in their forms. ..it took all of my attention, presence, thoughts . ..engaged art with deep roots. this tridimensional architecture,  sculptures are perfect landscapes for an abstract mind, d state that u get in is unreal dimension, surreal perception from one side but so real and close to d natural landscapes from other.

Early on, Oliveira experimented with the surfaces of his paintings by gluing newspaper onto a canvas and scraping it, or mixing sand with the paint. A breakthrough occurred while he was a student at the University of São Paulo, where for two years the view from his studio window was a wooden construction fence. Over time Oliveira began to see the deterioration of the wood and its separation into multiple layers and colors as similar to the process of painting. One week before the final student show opened, the construction was finished and the worn out plywood fence was discarded. Oliveira collected the wood and used it in his first installation.

.

Oliveira’s installations, which he refers to as “tridimensionals,” have evolved into massive, spatial constructions that combine painting, architecture, and sculpture. In some installations he uses walls as supports, attaching and shaping lengths of PVC tubing to create enormous, protruding forms over which he layers thin sheets of wood. In others, he arranges thousands of pieces of painted wood into gestural abstract “paintings” that spill off the wall into the viewer’s space. The constants in Oliveira’s work are the visual and tactile qualities of wood that has been exposed to the elements, and though he incorporates new, flexible plywood into his work, his primary material remains the discarded wood collected on the streets of São Paulo.

.

.

“powerful recycled wood installations snake through their exhibition spaces like massive living trees that burst out of walls and ceilings.”

“Oliveira has created an eco-friendly body of work using a unique process and style which treats discarded wood as if it were strokes of paint.  Seeing the beauty in the damaged, he gives worn pieces of wood new life.”

:hope u enjoy this surreal wooden dream, there are few more photos with d works from this great artist, sorry that I didn’t put names, but his signature is far away then authentic. happy that on this day I first time decide to collect most of his masterpieces, adorable indeed. – what do u say? . .. u can leave ur comments below or on :d white b[l]og ::: #facebook page _enJoy d first working day of this year, if that means explore – go for IT!

.first of All, Rest in Peace Sir & thanks for all d progress!

I would like to mention on my blog for one of d first modern sculptors in d art history. Inventive for d time when he start with his creativity work and pretty unique to be part of d history as respected artist that was promoting d diversity of expression nowadays. It’s hard to find ur own signature, to be something that shows d quality of d artist also as d topic he is working on.

John Angus Chamberlain [ b.April 16, 1927 – d. December 21, 2011] was American sculptor that is best known for creating sculptures from old automobiles (or parts of) that bring the Abstract Expressionist style of painting into three dimensions ..

His works have been exhibited around the world and have been included in the São Paulo Art Biennial (1961, 1994), the Venice Biennale (1964), the Whitney Biennial (1973, 1987) and Documenta, Kassel, Germany (1982) and he has had over 100 solo shows, traveling exhibitions, and retrospectives.

:d art artstory.org writes:

“he is creating vibrantly colored, dynamic sculptures from crushed, twisted and bent automobile parts. Inspired by the scale, color and impulsive creation of Abstract Expressionist work, Chamberlain was a pioneering force through his use of found materials and diverse colors. While also experimenting with a variety of sculptural media, as well as with film and painting, he greatly impacted many generations of artistic movements, including Minimalism and Pop Art, and continues to create inventive work today.”

.

.

Key Ideas
  • Chamberlain retains the jagged edges and unrefined paint colors of his primary medium – steel automobile parts – to illustrate his spontaneous, improvisational process. This technique brings the instinctual and gestural brushstrokes of his Abstract Expressionist peers into three dimensions.
  • Rejecting the frequent comparison of his work to violent car crashes, Chamberlain intends his audience to view his work aesthetically without preconceived ideas about the materials’ past. He aims to give everyday objects entirely new meanings, ranging from poetic abstraction to figural allusion.
  • A main concept for Chamberlain is the idea of “fit,” a natural, innate interconnection between sections of his sculptures. Rather than predetermining structures, he lets the fragments’ shapes and colors dictate composition.

:In d bulletin we can find this part that highlight part of his life and maybe d main reason why he start using this stuffs as material for his art.

.

Automobiles are a loaded subject, especially in the decades following World War II in the United States, which has led some observers to ascribe specific social meanings to Chamberlain’s art. The crushed automobiles have been connected to the violent death of Abstract Expressionist painter Jackson Pollock — who died in a car crash in 1956 — and then to the slightly later, 1960s car-crash paintings of Pop artist Andy Warhol. Chamberlain was skeptical. Of his choice of automobile sheet metal, the artist once said, “Michelangelo had a lot of marble in his backyard, so to speak; I had a lot of this stuff.

Using a common material is best for sculpture, he added, because it “doesn’t get in the way of doing an uncommon thing.

.In 1957 after his first work called Shortstop & made out of two fenders repeatedly run over by a truck we read from guardian.co.uk part of that what he said in that time:

“It was like, God, I finally found an art supply, and it was so cheap it just made you laugh,” he later said. “I think of my art materials not as junk but as garbage. Manure, actually: it goes from being the waste material of one being to the life-source of another.”

.d Guggenheim museum in New York is preparing retrospective exhibition from his works in February. We can see nearly 100 pieces from his earliest monochromatic welded iron-rod sculptures to the large-scale foil creations of recent years. But if ur not in US and u are interested in this artist and his works and still between my lines, hope u like d selection that I’ve done for d white blog.
