Optical illusionary sculptures from Argentinian Artist Leandro Erlich. Leandro is influenced by Jorge Luis Borges, Alfred Hitchcock, Roman Polanski, Luis Buñel and David Lynch, he uses cleverly placed mirrors to create a mind melting result.

“Erlich creates spaces with fluid and unstable boundaries. Before one tries to make sense of his sculptures and installations, one senses the uncanny. A single change (up is down, inside is out) can be enough to upset the seemingly normal situation, collapsing and exposing our reality as counterfeit. Through this transgression of limits, the artist undermines certain absolutes and the institutions that reinforce them.” Sean Kelly Gallery

Leandro Erlich is represented by The Sean Kelly Gallery, New York and Ruth Benzacar Galeria de Arte, Buenos Aires.  The Bâtiment (‘Building’) sculpture is currently on show at 104 Centquatre Paris until 4th March 2012.

08 kate MacDowell - surface and surface

Hand carved porcelain sculptures from American Artist Kate MacDowell.  Her work responds our relationship with the natural world, to environmental changes, pollution, mythology, Art History and figures of speech.

“I chose porcelain for its luminous and ghostly qualities as well as its strength and ability to show fine texture.  It highlights both the impermanence and fragility of natural forms in a dying ecosystem, while paradoxically, being a material that can last for thousands of years and is historically associated with high status and value.”

Kate MacDowell exhibited her work at the SCOPE Miami, separate group exhibits with Patrajdas Contemporary and Mindy Solomon Gallery in December 2011.

02 Anders Krisár - Surface and SurfaceUnsettling life-like sculptures from Stockholm based Swedish Artist Anders Krisár.

“Presenting internal conflicts and social anxieties within manipulations of the body, Swedish artist Anders Krisár creates stunning, psychological sculptures. With an intriguing focus on the physical form, the sculptures relay subtle messages addressing identity, health care and consumerism. Hints of violence and melancholy are juxtaposed with witty and strikingly executed patterns, whether as a disembodied torso that appears to be woven together, or a lifeless suit stuffed with cocooned shirts. View more of the works below.”

Anders Krisár is represented by the Nordin Gallery in Stockholm, Ramis Barquet Gallery in New York and the Union Gallery in London.
