art + artists - sculptors, arts blogs, exhibition

individual artists
 • Gabriel Warren. The first sculptor to be sent to Antarctica by the [US] National Science Foundation, refers to himself as a landscape sculptor who "...attempts to tread as lightly as possible on the earth. [His] metal pieces are fabricated from very thin sheets; [and] despite a massive appearance they are quite light and easy to move, install, and hang." The work on the right is only 38" x 18". His easy interface between geology and art makes the works especially appealing to me.
 • Ana Flores is a sculptor who gathers "...artifacts from nature [that] suggest their own stories and what slowly emerges are cultural, and mythical narratives...." What evolves may be carved hands that morph into tree limbs, or troll-like trunks reaching into the sky. Her environmental works have been featured at I-Park in East Haddam, CT.
 • Christo. Famed conceptual artist Christo lost his partner/spouse Jeanne-Claude last fall, but he continues with awe-inspiring projects like the Arkansas River in Colorado. As Christo + Jeanne-Claude's collective works go, I continue to remain impressed about the New York GATES project. Here's a link to photos of the Gates taken by a couple, Lori and Al, from Philadelphia.

 • White Noise of Everyday Life is a weblog about photography and contemporary visual arts. Here's a sample of night photos of the the rebuilding of the Hoover Dam Bridge taken by photographer Jamey Stillings.
 • Design Boom. Current trends in industrial design.
