In Dialogue With Kim Simonsson

In Dialogue With Kim Simonsson

With references to fairytale characters, manga films and computer games, Kim Simonsson's (b. 1974 in Finland) sculptures are very distinctive. Simonsson portrays magical little figures with black eye sockets, covered with a layer of what appears to be moss. These dreamy figures are a touch gruesome, yet simultaneously fragile and frail. The handmade ceramic stoneware sculptures are encased in a layer of nylon fiber in a nearly fluorescent shade of green.

You are a recent art graduate, yet despite your young age you have achieved acclaim with your highly original conceptual works which have been exhibited around Finland and at Galerie Forsblom last year. You have also won art awards both in Finland and abroad.Your most recent works are brass plates oxidized by the decomposing corpses of raccoon dogs, cattle and horses.

CAROLUS ENCKELL AT SARA HILDÉN ART MUSEUM

CAROLUS ENCKELL AT SARA HILDÉN ART MUSEUM

February 6 - May 15, 2016

A comprehensive retrospective showcasing the work of Carolus Enckell fills both floors of the Sara Hildén Art Museum this spring. The exhibition features Enckell’s paintings, drawings and three-dimensional works from the 1960s to the present day.

 

Carolus Enckell (b. 1945) ranks among the leading names in Finnish modern art. He is the recipient of numerous awards and accolades, including the Carnegie Art Award in 2001 and the Pro Finlandia Medal in 2009. Enckell is also a distinguished writer and art educator, having held long-term positions as dean and instructor at Helsinki’s Free Art School and as editor-in-chief of Taide, Finland’s leading art journal. 

 

In his artistic practice Enckell carries on the legacy of modernism. His work is characterized by varied symmetries, contrasting opposites and gradations of hue and tone. His masterful command of geometrical form and color exudes a spiritual quality. The artist describes his approach as one of “pure experiential seeing”: His works are not intended to be interpreted and understood through acquired symbolic systems; rather they should be experienced on a sensory level. The artist further contends that only pure experientialism enables us to comprehend the true nature of color and form. Enckell’s works indeed encapsulate what painting is all about in its purest form.

彼得·哈雷于美国圣巴巴拉美术馆举办个展

彼得·哈雷于美国圣巴巴拉美术馆举办个展

2015年11月8日 至 2016年3月6日

 

彼得·哈雷正在圣巴巴拉美术馆举办展览《荒谬的几何:彼得·哈雷2007年至2015年新作》。

 

哈雷的艺术创作经常与极简主义和新几何观念主义相关联。他擅长用抽象的几何图案阐释强有力的社会政治理念,旨在揭示社会结构及个人于社会阶级中所处的位置。横平竖直的线条、长方形与正方形在他的作品中组成了栅栏、窗户等图案。

 

哈雷于1975年获得耶鲁大学的文学学士学位,并于1978年取得新奥尔良大学的美术硕士学位。他曾于哥伦比亚大学、加州大学洛杉矶分校以及视觉艺术学院任教。自2002年起,哈雷便于耶鲁大学艺术学院担任绘画与版画专业研究生院院长。他的作品被大型国际收藏机构收藏。
