Anthropomorphic street sculptures from Mark Jenkins.
“There is opposition, and risk, but I think that just shows that street art is the sort of frontier where the leading edge really does have to chew through the ice. And it’s good for people to remember public space is a battleground, with the government, advertisers and artists all mixing and mashing, and even now the strange cross-pollination taking place as street artists sometimes become brands, and brands camouflaging as street art creating complex hybrids or impersonators.” – Mark Jenkins
Reclaimed timber sculptures by Canadian Artist Aaron Moran. His work reminds me a bit of David Lunney and Richard Pearse. Aaron is exhibiting his work at Zara stores in London, Madrid and Barcelona until July 29th. You can watch the video below of his collaboration with Zara and residency at Ranger Station Art Gallery in Harrison Hot Springs.
Really subtle art work from Mary Temple. These site specific installations create the illusion of sun light falling on the walls and floor of a space. Her work probably goes unnoticed quite a bit or takes a while to notice as the realism in her execution; using off white paint and wood stain is really brilliant.
Meticulously constructed matchstick and coat hanger sculptures from Scottish Artist David Mach. David was nominated for the Turner Prize in 1988 and is currently exhibiting work at the Galway Arts Festival entitled ‘Precious Light’. His work is made of everyday “non objects” taking and turning them into something inspiring; while tackling the subjects of religion and modern culture.
David accidentally discovered the performance power of his matchstick sculpture when a collector set one alight while having it cleaned. The resulting shared remains were much more interesting after the blaze. You can find his amazing collage work and more of his sculptures on his site below. David Mach’s exhibition continues at the Galway Arts Festival until the 19th of July.
