GEOMETRIC GLASS SCULPTURES by NIYOKO IKUTA

0

“I am captivated by the complexity of light as it reflects, refracts, and passes through broken cross sections of plate glass.
In 1980 I began making artwork by laminating sheets of glass using adhesive and exposing the cross sections. My motifs are derived from feelings of gentleness and harshness, fear, limitless expansion experienced through contact with nature, images from music, ethnic conflict, the heart affected by joy and anger, and prayer. In creating my pieces it is like imagining an architectural space when viewing blueprints, deciding on an image by reading into the intentions of the architect, or imbuing a space with dynamic energy to bring it to life.”

FIBER WORK by JACQUELINE SURDELL

0

Jacqueline Surdell is an artist living and working in Los Angeles, California. Her work explores macramé-knotting techniques as a type of connective drawing device, a way to create structure and define space. It is a transformative technique combining the reedy and slack with volume and shape. The performative, repetitive nature of the technique imbues an element of time as much as it speaks of space and volume.

The french photographer and artist Charles Pétillon turns this idea on its head, containing bundles of white, inflated balls within architectural spaces, neighborhoods and natural landscapes.

FAIG AHMED’S CARPETS

0

Known as the carpet artist from Azerbaidjan, Faig Ahmed takes the national traditional rugs and reconstructs them to create new patterns and shapes. Ahmed is remixing traditions by subverting the normal usage of rugs as domestic objects to be walked all over, and rejuvenating them with optical illusions and techniques reminiscent of contemporary internet art.
His work is a kind of cultural reclamation – taking an old object of everyday use which is rich in history and transforming it into a new one to be hung in galleries and viewed as an artwork.

ONE-WAY COLOUR TUNNEL by OLAFUR ELIASSON

0

“As visitors move through the passageway, they observe the fluctuating effect of light and reflections created by the colour-effect acrylic and acrylic mirrors. On one side, the tunnel’s triangular panels seem completely black; from the other end, a multicoloured spectrum shines through, changing as the viewers walks by.” said Olafur Eliasson.
