Prelude

”Until the day I die
I long to have no speck of shame
when I gaze up toward heaven,
so I have tormented myself,
even when the wind stirs the leaves.
With a heart that sings the stars,
I will love all dying things.
And I will walk the way
that has been given to me.

Tonight, again, the wind brushes the stars.”

― Yun Dong-ju

3D Paintings on Panes of Glass

Xia XiaoWan


Using his own unique technique, Xiaowan creates layers of 2D paintings on multiple thin transparent layers of glass, which, when stacked together, give the original painting an extra dimension and depth; which, in turn, makes the original painting appear holographic and sculpture-like.
The shape of the painting changes depending the direction from which an observer views the installation; thus maintaining the illusion of the extra added dimension and its holographic perspective.

Several works by Xiaowan are offered on ArtNet here. To know more, please read the interview with Xiaowan here

Xia Xiao Wan creates his arresting pieces using special pencils, tinted glass, and between 14 to 30 panes of glass. Creating amazing three-dimensional, stratachromatic images.

Beth Cavener Stichter and Alessandro Gallo Collaborate on Ornate Sculpture

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on February 24, 2014

Beth Cavener Stichter’s (Hi-Fructose Vol. 26 cover artist) sculptures have an intensely-visceral quality. The ceramic animals she hand-builds demonstrate an human-like sense of understanding with their sensitive gazes and anthropomorphic eyes. But despite their thoughtful countenances, these characters are also perfectly at home in their animal skins. Cavener Stichter’s work does not shy away from the brutality of the animal world, from its untamed sexuality to its endless cycle of predator and prey.

She recently collaborated with Italian artist Alessandro Gallo (previously featured in Hi-Fructose Vol. 24), who embellished her latest sculpture, Tangled Up in You, with painted tattoos reminiscent of traditional Japanese tattoo art. The 65-inch-tall sculpture (15 feet total, from the top knot of the rope to the floor) shows a lanky rabbit intertwined with a snake in mid-air. It is unclear whether the two figures are caught in a struggle to the death or a passionate embrace. Tangled Up in You is currently on view at the Milwaukee Museum of Art. Take a look at some detail shots of the elaborate piece as well as some photos of Cavener Stichter in her studio.
