Doctor y Licenciado en Ciencias Biológicas de la Facultad de Ciencias Exactas y Naturales de la Universidad de Buenos Aires, Pablo La Padula desarrolla una obra donde arte y ciencia se retroalimentan como dos partes inseparables e indiscutibles en su intervención creativa para llevar adelante cada proyecto.
Kris Lemsalu’s work explores the mysteries, wonders, and absurdities of birth, life, and death. Like artists past, she considers these themes (the stuff of art since the beginning of human time) and poses the same existential question: What’s it all about?
Employing an invented language of the human form that re-articulates heads, hands, ears, limbs, and sexual organs, David Altmejd’s figures present an assemblage of dispersed parts that give the impression of a body shattering and shuddering into being.
Online at Field Projects in New York and at Outer Roominations in Eureka, California Nancy Tobin’s sculptural installations were recently on view in “Afterlight Online,” on the Field Projects website, and at Outer Roominations, a festival of outdoor sculpture and installation in rural northern California.
A gigantic worm burrowing through a museum, bouncy sea barriers, a statue of an Iraq War veteran, and a walking map silhouetting a woman’s profile: these are some of the temporary sculptures currently installed along England’s southeastern coast as part of “Waterfronts,” a project exploring ideas of borders and nationhood.
NEW YORK Park Avenue and Kasmin Sculpture Garden By the beginning of the 1950s, Rickey started to prioritize sculpture. He marketed a Calder-like, do-it-yourself mobile kit (Mobikit, 1952). His eureka moment came when he realized that he could build kinetic sculptures unlike Calder’s works, and mobile in more controlled ways, by applying engineering skills learned from his father and grandfather and practiced during his military stint.
LOS ANGELES Hauser & Wirth Underscoring sensory experience, its sensuality and embodiment, the show was presented in near-total darkness, with individual works picked out by spotlights that magnified their dramatic beauty and other-worldliness. Like Neolithic caves and Romanesque churches, such dimly lit environments can become metaphorical arenas of awe and spirituality; but they can also reduce the liminal to the merely theatrical.
Yasue Maetake, a Japanese sculptor who has been living in New York for more than 10 years, creates small to life-size works with found materials, blending abstract and natural-seeming forms into eclectic, fully hybridized wholes filled with allusiveness.
For over 30 years, British sculptors Richard Deacon and Bill Woodrow—both internationally recognized for their individual work—have engaged in intermittent collaboration. To date, they have produced more than 60 “shared sculptures,” and they are now showing their first-ever collaboratively made drawings, created between 2019 and 2020.
I knew I wanted to create something for Madison Square Park that would be intimately related to the park itself, the trees, and the state of the earth. Throughout the world, climate change is causing vast tracts of forested lands to die off.
