Happy Friday! Ok, it’s from the 1540s Room, not the 1840s Room at Tate Britain, but this dancing Portrait of Captain Thomas Lee makes us smile. 
Thanks http://danielpardini.tumblr.com

This Martin Creed sculpture was on the blog a few months ago. Just a few days later, I encountered the very same artwork, at The Armory Show in New York.

Netherland-based artist ©Peter Gentenaar Paper sculptures at Abbey of Saint-Riquier, Picardie, Somme, Northern France (2012)

100 ethereal, large-scale sculptures of organic shapes float in mid-air throughout the church’s grand halls. 

  • A paper sheet is thin and strong and, reinforced with very thin ribs of bamboo, can be compared to a leaf. By beating pulp a long time, an extraordinary play of forces occurs during the drying process of my paper sculpture. The paper shrinks considerably, up to 40%, and the force of this puts the non-shrinking bamboo framework under stress, just as a leaf when it drys.

    My sculptures start as totally 2-dimensional, colored sheets of pulp laying on my vacuumtable. The forms in my work are caused by pulp drying and shrinking in unison. The simplicity of the material, which is the carrier, the color, the texture and the form, in one, makes working with it wonderful and direct.

Romain Crelier | La Mise en Abîme

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.

Waiting for Joan to come. He promised to provide me with some pieces of old industrial waste for my sculptures that he had in this old factory. I am was not so hopeful but…Yessssssss!

Esperando a que llegara Joan, que me había prometido que dentro de esta vieja fábrica tenía algunas piezas industriales que yo podría recuperar para mis esculturas. No tenía demasiada esperanza, pero….Siiiiiiii !!!!!!!

Feliz cumpleaños, Rafael querido!!!!!!!
