Photorealistic, figurative minimalism, from artist Nigel Cox.
Awesomeness, by artist SIT.
Detail from Head No. 2, by Russian Constructivist sculptor Naum Gabo (1890-1977).
Gabo’s work utilized what is known as “stereometric construction,” by which form is achieved through the description of space rather than mass. In explaining the method he once stated, “We take four planes and we construct with them the same volume as four tons of mass.”
This 1/10 scale model of KOU-AN (Glass Teahouse) by Tokujin Yoshioka, is currently showing at Glasstress 2011, the collateral event of the 54th La Biennale di Vennezia. The completed full-scale work is scheduled to be realized in 2013.
Glasstress 2011, an event in which sculptures and installations of glassworks created by internationally recognized contemporary artists, such as Zaha Hadid, Jan Fabre and Huan Zhang are showcased, runs until November 27th 2011.
Cool works from Arian Behzadi.
