FORCE OF NATURE
Artist, Lorenzo Quinn’s is no stranger to attention, his life-sized installations have always been grabbers. His newest works, a series of sculptures entitled, Force of Nature are no exception..these gravity-defying statues seem to be in a state of perpetual motion.
At the base of the sculptures are these words from the artist… “We humans think of ourselves as supreme beings, above all others and in absolute control of our destiny and our surroundings. We live with a false sense of security, only to be awakened by Mother Nature’s fury, almost as if she needs to remind us of her presence and our responsibility towards her child (the Earth). After having seen the ravaged coast of Thailand and the hurricane that affected the Southern States, I decided to create a sculpture dedicated to Mother Nature. This would be reminiscent of the early statues made as peace offerings to the gods in the hope of quenching their anger. In essence, people are not very different today from the people who lived thousands of years ago. We still devote ourselves to symbols in order to escape our destiny.”

Combining painting and sculpture - Shintaro Ohata
Still one of my favorite artists and art pieces.
Soo Sunny Park - Capturing Resonance (2011)
Amazing paintings that defies tradition. Japanese artist Shintaro Ohata fuses his paintings with his color-perfect sculptures. These compositions make for quite the compelling installation. At first glance, these painting seem perfectly great, but take a step back and watch the visual presentation as the sculpture compliments the work itself. The first piece is just lovely, the sunset backdrop that corresponds with the yellow, orange gradient works flawlessly against the subject and cat. The second piece is my favorite, the cascading blue, violet markings makes for an interesting element in the piece. It sets a perfect mood for the girl and her food. The third piece is just as remarkable as well, the brown and light green creates the illusion of fall. I love all of these workings, be sure to check out more of Shintaro’s work after the jump.
I think these miiiight be by this woman I’ve seen at FanExpo a couple times who does these sculptures with that lightweight air dry foam clay stuff? It’s insane.
