Sculptor

Osang Gwon’s mission is to demolish the line that separates the medium of sculpture from that of photography. He accumulates photographs to build sculptural forms. He sets up sculptural forms to compose photographs. Gwon relishes the ambiguity that confuses the viewer. Is his work two-dimensional or three-dimensional? Or both simultaneously?

This creative method fuels the artist’s fascination with modern marketing. Shiny appearances and consumer culture. He derives themes and extracts motifs as the subject of his works. Academically trained in sculpture, Gwon has aroused interest in the circles of sculptors as well as photographers.

Deodorant Type.

Dedicated to his most famous series, “Deodorant Type”, the book Gwon, Osang: The Sculpture was published by the Arario Gallery. His work can be found in numerous local and international exhibitions. As well as in publications that present and present contemporary Korean art. Gwon has organized solo exhibitions in South Korea, the United States and the United Kingdom. Her work was featured in the international traveling exhibition, Roundabout, which traveled from New Zealand to Israel.

Matthew Monahan

Matthew Monahan

Sculptor

Location: Los Angeles (US)

 

 

 

 

 

Matthew Monahan uses materials like paper to create decidedly human and vulnerable sculptures. All of the artist’s practice uses a variety of materials. What shines through in each of his works is his penchant for transmitting people in unexpected ways.

Recognized for his mastery of traditional and industrial materials, Monahan’s new works reflect a physical and mental showdown with the history of figuration. Monahan goes beyond the individual icon. Populating his works with unruly masses and subjecting his characters to an insoluble struggle. Rendered mainly in black and white. The viewer is forced to zoom in and out on a pixelated optical field. Where sculpture and painting overlap and merge.

Martín Lagares

Martín Lagares

Sculptor

Location : Spain

 

 

 

 

 

Degree in Fine Arts from the University of Cuenca. Martín Lagares was born in 1976 in the enclave that connects the coast and the Onubense mountain range. In his hometown, La Palma del Condado, he has developed his entire career since graduating in 2000. Apprentice to sculptor Francisco Joaquin Moreno Daza.

With an overwhelming personality, the dexterity of his hands with mud, gives his work the strength of the most primitive art. The spirituality of the most evolved man.

Martín Lagares mainly works with clay. Terracotta. Resin and bronze. Materials of immanence, far from the nobility of marble and its divinizing or transcendent stubbornness. Nothing is accidental. These are the most suitable materials for generating creative tension. And strongly expressive to which his sculpture aspires.

Ursula von Rydingsvard (American, born 1942 in Deensen, Germany). She studied painting at the University of Miami, Coral Gables. Then she obtained a Masters of Fine Arts from Columbia University in 1975. The artist’s large-scale sculptures reveal traces of the human hand. Which suggest the earliest memories of being surrounded by wooden walls. Tools and utensils as a child living in wartime refugee and labor camps in Germany. After her family was forced to leave Poland. Von Rydingsvard creates his work from commercially machined cedar beams that are marked. Shaped by cuts in wood. Stacked, then glued together. These shapes can also be used for casting sculptures. In materials such as urethane resin. Copper and bronze. Von Rydingsvard’s organic and gestural works allude to the landscape. To the body and common utility items such as spoons, shovels and bowls.

Nike Ramage makes machines that move, or appear to move. Machines not useful but sculptural. With weaknesses and flaws. Ticks and squeaks. Too complicated and underperforming.

Some ask the viewer to put them in motion. Others have their own life. They are made from a motley collection. Disparate parts, encompassing lost and broken machine parts. As well as household items. They are machines born from ideas but bypassing utility. Machines steeped in the human condition. Absurd and uncertain.

Mikael Christian Strøbek, visual artist based in Berlin. He merges photography. The sculpture. Light and digital art to create themes of perception. Physical movements through its installations.
Strøbek’s minimalist and contemporary works give a perspective on form. Color and composition in different artistic contexts. At first glance, the viewer assumes that the works are physical in nature. But often, the artist creates conceptual 3D renderings of his installations.

“Digital works seek to redefine artistic production in connection with architectural contexts. “

By using several supports in his geometric works. Strøbek creates a framework through which the viewer can freely attribute their own impressions.

Stefaan De Croock (1982) lives and works in Bruges, Belgium. He graduated in fine arts (graphic design) at Sint-Lucas in Ghent. Since 2011, Stefaan has devoted his time entirely to his art and to his “Strook” project. His training and experience as a graphic designer clearly marked his artistic vision. Stefaan first draws some basic lines. Each drawing begins with this rapid, spontaneous, even impulsive action. He leans towards automatic drawing. Within these lines, he creates different dimensions by adding color. Structure and narrative details. The intrigue fights to attract the attention of the spectator. However, the large composition stands firm.
