Modernism reflects a global movement in society and culture that sought a new alignment with the values of modern industrial life. As a result, artists worldwide use new imagery, materials, and techniques to create artworks that echo their outlooks as well as modern societies' realities and hopes. Often enough, modernist art includes certain underlying principles such as rejection of history and conservative values, a tendency to abstraction, and experimentation with different forms such as shapes, colors, and lines.
As we celebrate the evolution of contemporary sculptures, we must recognize those at the forefront of the art form. The complex work of Metis Atash encompasses a fusion of worldly pleasure and spiritual insight by combining conceptual, minimalist, and pop art traditions. Atash sculpts with various materials, including fiberglass, iron, cement, and wood, and her creations are constantly embellished with thousands of Swarovski crystals, representing the creativity within modern art sculptures.
The approach to sculpture requires a form, and Atash's choice is reflected within the structure of Buddha. While these works are not intended for religious purposes, they represent the need to balance spiritual and physical lives. The perpetual contradiction of fusing the material with our spiritual beings is mirrored within each of her sculptures, reminding her viewers that it is possible to not only allow these two worlds to gracefully coexist but also embrace their discrepancies and challenges.
Eden Gallery is a proud exhibitor of yet another extraordinary Modern sculpture, Fred Allard, an artist who suspends the relationship between urban and luxury, giving his spectators two worlds to compare and contrast. Allard utilizes juxtaposing textures, colors, and imagery within his work, embedding ideas of both the past and the present. The artist's "Shopping Bag" series, a collection of sculptures centered on luxury brands and accessories, reflects his views on how industrial products and worldwide brands dictate our taste, needs, behavior, and identity. By freezing the world of consumption within a 3D, fully transparent picture of society, Allard can showcase his unique sense of contemporary art expression.
South African artist Jonty Hurwitz, uses his knowledge in science as a former engineer, to create unique, mind-blowing artworks. His anamorphic sculptures are the epitome of masterful artistry, including his choice to leave interpretation entirely to the viewers. Hurwitz’s works tell a story about the human perspective and aims to leave viewers in awe, through his combination of modern techniques and logic-defiant works of art..
The ever-changing art form of Modern art sculptures is a flexible space for reflection that gives rise to constant experimentation with new techniques and materials. To see more modern sculptures by our artists, explore the Eden Gallery website or visit one of Eden Gallery's Locations.
