Fibonacci Zoetrope Sculptures

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, January 20, 2015
These are 3-D printed sculptures designed to animate when spun under a strobe light. The placement of the appendages is determined by the same method nature uses in pinecones and sunflowers. The rotation speed is synchronized to the strobe so that one flash occurs every time the sculpture turns 137.5º—the golden angle. If you count the number of spirals on any of these sculptures you will find that they are always Fibonacci numbers.

Rebecca Szeto's Paintbrush Portraits

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, January 06, 2015
Rebecca Szeto's Paintbrush Portraits play with notions of re-forming beauty and value, offering a critique on consumerism, women's work, and a curious entanglement of class dynamics in Leisure & Labor - Trash & Treasure. She uses humble, end-of-life, mass-produced materials inspired by her experience as a faux finisher and initially by Velázquez's 17th century painting, Las Meninas. The paintbrush is self-referential, acting as both subject and object. It refers to the history of painting, through the medium of paint, using its own tool.

Lucy Glendinning's Feather Children

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, January 06, 2015
Lucy Glendinning is a sculptor and installation artist, who works in a contemporary British sculpture tradition. Here, different aesthetic expressions are brought together under one central entry point: the human body as a semiotic medium. For Glendinning, art is the primary tool for investigating psychological and philosophical themes. Her work is thus permeated by a conceptual content, superior to the value of aesthetics. That does not imply that the artistic performance is lacking, on the contrary, she is seducing the observing eye by emphasing subtle expressions and presenting a stunning craftsmanship.
