Artist Bruno Catalano‘s rather large series of life size bronze sculptures is poetically titled Travelers. The group of sculptures depict very different people but each walking with suitcase or bag in hand, a few sitting on their luggage. However, large swath’s of each person’s body is missing as if disappearing or torn away, the sculpture somehow still able to stand. While the subjects are clearly literal travelers, they also to appear be traveling in some symbolic sense. The sheer number of sculptures almost resemble a human migration, a sort of shared journey. It may be that Catalano’s Travelers search for a personal fulfillment illustrated by a literal emptiness.
Spanish sculptor Lidó Rico‘s work is characterized by the use of his own anatomy as a live model. It gives the viewer a sense of the world that has no place for sentimentality or nostalgia. I really loved the pain and agony in each study’s expression. These imaginary figures are trapped forever in some sick plot, half in our world, half in some other as if trapped in a portal with no way to get out. Take a look at these grotesquely, macabre sculptures. - See more at: http://thewallbreakers.com/lido-rico-trapped-in-time-suspended-in-agony
Using entirely found imagery and a crisp design sensibility Arganaraz alters and skews in order to create a modern dialogue with vintage visuals. His subject matter and acrylic with screen print technique is reminiscent of Christopher Wool and Andy Warhol as he too utilizes a design based aesthetic in which he incorporates text.
