Hand Sculptures Highlight Effects of Eurozone Crisis in Barcelona Street Art Project


hand1

Mysterious disembodied hands sprouted from walls and sidewalks in Barcelona in “Hands”, a 2012 street art project. The hands were posed in provocative gestures — begging for change, holding nooses, menacing passersby with mimed pistols — as a commentary on the upheaval caused by the Eurozone economic crisis. The project was created by four artists: Octavi SerraMateu TargaPau García, and Daniel Lugany.

Arroyo Grande, California-based artist Mark Bryan has created a surreal collection of sci-fi themed oil paintings titled Things From Space. The paintings portray a futuristic vision of Earth that is under attack by monstrous alien robots and UFOs. In a few of his pieces, Mark mixes in pop culture icons who are either helping to protect us (Mona Lisa) or are one of the many helpless victims (Bambi). Prints are available to purchase online via Mark’s Imagekind store.

La Mise en Abîme


tumblr_mq3fwizaBn1qz6f9yo1_500 tumblr_mq3fwizaBn1qz6f9yo2_1280

It’s that time of year again – back to Bellelay for the summer exhibition. For this year’s edition, the Abbey-church is hosting an installation especially created by Swiss artist ROMAIN CRELIER.

Entitled La Mise en Abîme, the mesmerising installation comprises two large, extremely precise and impeccably finished receptacles in which vast quantities of used oil are contained. Shaped like giant puddles, the sculptures with their shiny, and lacquer surfaces (thanks to the expressive properties of oil) reflect the surrounding, allowing the viewers to interact with the architecture of the church by being pulled into the reflection so that they, in turn, become part of the sculpture itself. The installation not only dispenses multiple visual thrills and mysteries but also offers a moment where sculpture creates another reading of space.

Working in a scale simultaneously monumental and intimate, these sculptures continue CRELIER‘s career-long exploration of the space through conceptual engagement with buildings as well as his experimentation with light and dark, form and void, inside and outside, surface and depth, abstraction and figuration, reflection and absorption.

And good news: this exhibition is currently on view the Abbey-church of Bellelay, Switzerland and is running through September 16, 2013

Defying gravity

Between 2003 and 2006, French conceptual artist Philippe Ramette created a series of gravity-defying photographs that show him in seemingly impossible poses. These illusions were not created digitally as Ramette explains to The Guardian in 2009, “You see a tension in my hands, my red face is far from serene as the blood rushes to it, my suit is ruffled.” Web Urbanist has images and a brief explanation of how Ramette’s illusion is accomplished.

While you discovered his piece for Memorie Urbane yesterday (covered), Sam3 also worked on this brilliant piece in Blanca, a Spanish municipality, in the Region of Murcia, located in the “Vega Alta del Segura”.
Using only black paint the Spanish artist is interested in the “naked idea”, which can be expressed simply with a silhouette.
