John Rainey is a young Northern Irish artist whose work I first saw in 2016, when I marked him down as “one to watch.” Unlike many Irish artists, he was largely trained in England, at Manchester Metropolitan University and at the Royal College of Art in London.
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.
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.
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.
In the neon works of Welsh conceptualist Cerith Wyn Evans, “real light” (as Dan Flavin called electric light) appears like an un-flickering flame, creating brilliant and bizarre spatial drawings. His sculptures resonate with an amalgam of illusion and fact, interacting with the spaces that they occupy, disappear into, and dissolve.
