GERHARD LENTINK’S WOODEN PUZZLE SCULPTURES

Dutch sculptor Gerhard Lentink’s elaborate pieces carved out of wood look like complex puzzles that once solved give you the answers to the worlds problems.

A Condemned House Explodes Onto the Streets of Austin

A few days ago I happened upon a rather unique art project called Last New Year in theAustin American Statesman, showing photos of a dilapidated home recently transformed with a number of installations by a small arts collective called Ink Tank. The premise for the project was fascinating: the ensemble imagined a fictional group of people living in the home who would react to the prophesied end-of-times 2012 date. One of my favorite pieces from the show is a giant installation called The Purge by artist Chris Whiteburch who decided to imagine how the house itself would confront the impending doom. The result is a structure purging its contents, all manner of debris and structural material shooting violently through a window into a giant wooden splash.

Movement and Explosions by Scott Belcastro

While we’re used to seeing Scott Belcastro’s beautifully whimsical paintings, we were delighted to find out that he’s turned a slightly darker corner with his new works. Opening February 24 at Iam8bit Gallery in Los Angeles is Brighter Doom, a solo exhibition that, according to the gallery, explores “the vivacity and chaos pulsating through all entities, whether natural or man-made, while simultaneously addressing the beautiful tragedy that is life.” 

 Using acrylic paint on wood panels, he’s both simulating movement and showing us explosions that seem to be traveling across.

Interconnected tangled cords, atoms of the universe flying so fast they become blurred lines, tree roots intertwined, and the buoyancy of infinity. These are a few of the images that come to mind when looking at these sculptures of wood, made into curving tendrils.
