Sculptures by Edoardo Tresoldi

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 08, 2014
These meticulously woven sculptures of wire depict a frozen moment in time. Edoardo Tresoldi returns us to emotional moments almost like referencing a photograph, but with life-sized and larger meshed figures. So ephemeral they place a ghostly stamp on the places we’ve been and the situations we’ve experienced.

“Liberty Leading the People”

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 08, 2014
At the Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA) 2014 Annual Student Exhibition in Beijing is this hand-painted larger-than-life plaster sculpture. A graduate student of CAFA, studying figurative sculpture, created this piece in reference to the notable painting ‘Liberty Leading the People’ by French painter Eugene Delacriox commemorating the July Revolution of 1830. Relative to history, this pop art and kitschy piece heightens our awareness as consumers of the media in any society. This is a universal problem so…July Revolution of 2014?

Ren Ri Sculpts with Bees

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 08, 2014
Based out of Beijing, Ren Ri is an artist and beekeeper. Titled ‘Yuansu II’, his series features sculptures he collaborated on with bees. Cleverly using a method of chance, Ren rolled a die to determine the next position for the transparent plastic boxes every week. This guaranteed spontaneity and mystery in both party’s actions. Inside at the center of every structure, the queen bee resides while the worker bees build around her. A beautiful collaboration with nature while referencing the biblical concept of creation, Ren pushes the third dimension to ethereal heights.
