Paris born artist Cédric Le Borgne invites everyone to view daily life in a fresh way, to rise up, to dream. By abolishing barriers, his work of exploring spaces is sensitive, his poetry subtly interacts with each place it comments upon. From sculptures made of chicken wire to photo or video, from perennial installations to spontaneous performance, from street-art to web-art, his work is free of formal constraints.

Italian sculptor Aaron Demetz (previously) will have several new figurative sculptures on view at Gazelli Art House in London starting March 28, 2013 as part of the show The Tainted with Korean sculptor Shan Hur. The new works continue to explore Demetz exploration of the human figure and show his incredible skill in carving wood. Via the gallery:
For The Tainted, renowned Italian artist Aron Demetz will present a new body of sculptures, which are a continuation of his long-standing fascination with the human figure. Working in wood, Demetz uses this material to highlight both the harmony and conflicts that exist between man and nature. These works are not only a reflection of human emotion but hark back to far more primitive origins of the first interactions between people and their surroundings.
The stark contrast between the smoothly carved figures and the eroded wood surfaces is absolutely amazing in these new works. See many more images from the upcoming exhibition at Gazelli Art House. (via global art news)
