L’art de Lauren Carney n’est pas nécessairement le plus original, mais il est définitivement, absolument cute! J’aime l’aura ne naïveté dans ses tableaux. C’est comme une bouffée de jeunesse tout droit venue d’un livre pour enfants. Les petits visages ronds, les couleurs, les thèmes, c’est tout à fait charmant.
Je suis absolument sans voix. Mes yeux n’arrivent pas à croire ce que je vois!! Dalton Ghetti sculpte des crayons de plomb. Un art minuscule avec une précision infinie. Prenez le temps de lire ce qu’il avait a dire au Telegraph à propos de son art.
The 49 year old said: « At school I would carve a friend’s name into the wood of a pencil and then give it to them as a present. Later, when I got into sculpture, I would make these huge pieces from things like wood, but decided I wanted to challenge myself by trying to make things as small as possible. I experimented sculpting with different materials, such as chalk, but one day I had an eureka moment and decided to carve into the graphite of a pencil »
Dalton uses three basic tools to make his incredible creations – a razor blade, sewing needle and sculpting knife. He even refuses to use a magnifying glass and has never sold any of his work, only given it away to friends. He said: « I use the sewing needle to make holes or dig into the graphite. I scratch and create lines and turn the graphite around slowly in my hand »
The longest Dalton has spent on one piece was two and half years on a pencil with interlinking chains. A standard figure will take several months. He said: « The interlinking chains took the most effort and I was really pleased with it because it’s so intricate people think it must be two pencils »
When Dalton, from Connecticut, USA, first started he would become frustrated when a piece would break before being finished after he had spent months working on it. He said: « It would drive me mad when I would be just a bit too heavy handed and the pencil’s tip would break. I would get very nervous sometimes, particularly when the piece was almost finished, and then I would make a mistake. I decided to change the way I thought about the work – when I started a new piece my attitude would be ‘well this will break eventually but let’s see how far I get. It helped me break fewer pencils, and although I still do break them, it’s not as often »
Dalton, who is originally from Brazil, has a box full of more than 100 sculptures that have broken while working on them that he affectionately calls ‘the cemetery collection’. He said: « I have quite a few broken pieces so I decided to glue them on pins and into styrofoam for a display case. People might think it’s weird I keep them but they’re still interesting. I worked on them for months so they might be dead now but at one point I gave them life. »
Branislav Kropilak est un artiste d’origine slovaque des plus étonnant. Il photographie la relation entre l’Homme et la technologie d’une manière que je n’avais jamais vu encore. Biensur, ce n’est pas le premier photographe industriel que je vois et aime, mais Kropilak me donne l’impression de vivre dans un monde sci-fi. J’adore quand on me fait voir les choses à priori banales d’une autre manière. Son œuvre gravite autours du design industriel, de l’architecture et de l’urbanisme fusionné avec un souci de la géométrie et de la perspective parfaite.
Je vous mets ici sa série « Billboards », mais Kropilak explore également les portes d’entrepôt, les usines, les pompes à essence, les trains, les garages. Tout est là.
