Boxes – Marc Giai-Miniet (France)
Marc Giai-Miniet is a French artist who makes creepy and fascinating dioramas that tend to feature reproductions of human organs, crime scenes, submarines in basements, and, wait for it … libraries.
The miniature tableaus are terrific examples of art’s ability to transform seemingly predictable, mundane scenarios into absurd, freakish, and beautiful visual experiences.
Giai-Miniet’s libraries are detailed and striking, replete with book cover art, author names, and identifiable typography. Occasionally a diorama’s title will conjure a loose narrative, an obscure starting point from which the viewer might further consider the art.
Organic sculptures of Leigh Taylor Mickelson (USA)
“My ceramic sculpture explores the different components of self, sexuality and family, and how these components relate and conflict with one another. I use forms from nature, especially ones found in plant life, as a means of expressing these components. Being full of dichotomy, the elements of natural forms act as a metaphor for the spiritual, emotional and physical extremes that exist within our selves, our love relationships and our family units.
The Lure and Botanical Duet series give homage to one of the most recent inspirations for my work: a plant’s will to pollinate. For me, the private “business” of flowering plants reveals a world that mimics human interaction to a fascinating degree. In addition, the forms found inside plants, once magnified, divulge a beauty that is regrettably unseen by the naked eye. In my work, I aim to capture the essence of these organic forms, reveal their beauty, and hence celebrate nature’s will to attract and therefore produce.”
Sculptures poétique Clementine De Chabaneix. (France)
“I work with epoxy resin or ceramic, iron and sometimes wood.
I often sculpt young ‘ Burtonian’ girls, kind of “Alice in Wonderland”, teenagers, romantic, a bit gothic…
My work is about leaving childhood, metamorphose, struggle.
I draw also with very thin lines, minimalist black and white drawings, with the same subject.”
Syrian-Swedish Artist Alexander Hadad – Born in Syria in 1961. Lives in Norrköping, Sweden.
“My artistic realm is based on two cultural perspectives – Oriental and Swedish. The connection and contrast between these two cultures represent for me a persistant source of inspiration that allows me to constantly find new ways for my artistic creation.”
Sculptures monumentales de Javier Marín. (born in Uruapan, Michoacan, Mexico in 1962)
Javier Marin’s sculpture a unique and dynamic blend of Western European and Mexican culture. Working quickly, primarily in clay, Marín does not refer to a model but instead relies on his remarkable knowledge of the human form gathered from years of drawing directly from the figure. Process is one of the artist’s most obvious passions, spikes of bronze are often left exposed to show the paths of molten metal flowing into the cast figure. During the creation of a work, words might be quickly inscribed onto the raw clay, holes gouged and support structures left exposed. It is this deliberate coarseness combined with his elegant classic approach to the figure that combines to give these works such power and substance.
