The subject of numerous museum shows, Anders Krisár’s work, often focuses on the human body. Krisár’s sculptures often features or makes reference to the human form, exhibiting a preoccupation with formal rigor and abstraction. Using this exacting approach, he employs precision of form to create intensely personal, psychological landscapes.

Objects of simultaneous horror and beauty.

Krisár’s sculptures – immaculately produced, and often bear a deliberate blemish that is itself impeccably rendered. Are discomfiting, objects of simultaneous horror and beauty. The Birth of Us (Boy) features a child’s torso, marred by the indentation of two adult hand prints; in M the life size figure of a boy is split in two and then rejoined, so that a single figure becomes two halves, severed twins clasping hands. The violence that underpins both these sculptures is a recurring theme and is rendered with care and deliberation, so that it appears both aesthetic and inevitable. The sculptures are uncanny because of the meticulousness with which they are executed; according to Krisár, “I’m a perfectionist because I have to be, it’s not really a choice. And it’s not a striving for satisfaction, it’s rather to avoid pain.”

In Samuel Salcedo art irony mixes with the great sympathy to the humans. His realistically made sculptures show ridiculous, funny and some times touching heroes often show nuked. Despite of the small scale, Samuel’s works truly and deeply show all the complex of the human loneliness and confusion.

Irreal heads.

Another vector of Samuel’s art is giant irreal heads with the distorted features that might show offense. In the age of social media, when each of us could create his own fake image, the artist uncovers shortcomings and weaknesses of an ordinary people showing them in an unusual way. Samuel explains: “I like to play with the image of the mask, to show the look that hide something or on the other hand show several emotions at the same time… My art is a reflection of ourselves, how we see each other and ourselves”.

Ashley Bickteron is a Barbados-born American artist known for her baroque multimedia approach to exploring contemporary society. Having moved to four continents while growing up and emigrated permanently from America to his current residence in Kuta, Bali, Bickerton’s pilgrim way of life has been a central influence on his compositions. Freshly graduated from the California Institute of the Arts in 1982, Bickerton began his career in New York where he was part of the famous Neo-Geo Group in the 1980s. During his stay in America, his compositions included industrial materials, found objects and screen-printed images such as company logos titled “Anthropospheres”, “Commercial Pieces” or even “Self-Portraits”.

Born in Poland in 1957 and arrived in Australia in 1982. Studied painting, graphic design and sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Wroclaw, Poland 1979-81. BA City Art Institute Sydney, 1985-88. then painting – Graduate Diploma in Fine Arts – at the City Art Institute, Sydney 1989.

Symbols of emotions.

Barbara Licha has always been interested in the complexity of the human condition and the variety of human behaviors. She explores the parallels between ordinary people and the people who reside in her imagination, who in her mind appear more like symbols of emotions. It is important for Barbara to seek the universality of the human condition. The figures which are sculpted more or less represent someone. But at the same time they intersect and transform into symbols that represent us all. Licha expresses the inside of people: their wishes, their dreams and their desires.

Born January 22, 1984, Baia Mare, Bogdan Rata works in Timisoara, Romania. He teaches at the West University of Timisoara, Faculty of Arts and Design, Department of Sculpture.

Posthumanism.

His new hybrid realism finds new genetic forms of human anatomy in search of a new posthumanism. Rata multiplies human parts (fingers, ears, etc.) and combines them into new life forms. Newborn babies seem to be the result of strange experiments with the human body in an aesthetic laboratory. Rata’s works forge a contextual shift in anatomical detail through his obsessive multiplication. The materials used, and the resulting industrial aspect, question the attack on individual personality in a climate of standardization of the commercial brand.

Unsuccessful blessing.

The concept of “hand-foot” and the symbol of “unfruitful blessing” reinforce the idea behind the work. Propelling it delicately into the realm of the grotesque. The torso also evokes a twist of reality, the socially provocative themes of sexual identity and the hermaphrodite. He uses new materials such as polystyrene, industrial paint, plaster, synthetic resin.

Lawrence Argent’s art encompasses a breadth of form, material, and site that push the viewer to confront their assumptions about environments and the art that exists within them. These interventions envelope a path of consciousness through which the physical promotes the non-physical. The sublime emerges as a vehicle traversing a slippery foundation in the gap between stimulus and response.

The Spanish visual artist Isaac Cordal has been leading his urban art project Cement Eclipses for several years in many cities around the world. Five-inch cement figurines (mostly middle-aged businessmen, laptops in hand) are scattered around to intrigue passers-by. On ledges or on the street wall. In a corner of a bus stop or in the hollow of the sidewalks. In the sea or in the puddle of a vacant lot. Denial of climate change and pollution. Questioning our degraded relationship to nature or to others. Social isolation. Alienation at work. Devaluation of the human whether they are refugees, homeless or chain workers… It seems that by miniaturizing the problems in the form of anonymous characters. Then, by placing them in the public space, we paradoxically draw more attention to phenomena that people can no longer grasp at real size…
