Arrested Motion http://arrestedmotion.com "the aim of every artist is to arrest motion..." -Faulkner Fri, 27 May 2016 23:50:23 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Os Gemeos Designs Felipe Massa Helmet http://arrestedmotion.com/2016/05/os-gemeos-designs-felipe-massa-helmet/ http://arrestedmotion.com/2016/05/os-gemeos-designs-felipe-massa-helmet/#comments Fri, 27 May 2016 23:46:40 +0000 http://arrestedmotion.com/?p=300604 Screen Shot 2016-05-27 at 4.35.16 PM

For this year's Monoco GP, Os Gemeos have designed a special helmet for fellow countryman and Formula One driver Felipe Massa. With the relaxing of the rule forcing drivers to keep a single helmet design for a whole year (now allowed one special set of colors once per season), the Brazilian racer took advantage and asked the artistic duo to create the imagery for the new headwear including a painted version of his wife and son on the top. Take a look at more detailed views below... Photo credit: Glenn Dunbar. Discuss Os Gemeos here.]]>

Showing: Antony Micallef – “Raw Intent” @ Pearl Lam Galleries (Hong Kong) http://arrestedmotion.com/2016/05/showing-antony-micallef-raw-intent-pearl-lam-galleries-hong-kong/ http://arrestedmotion.com/2016/05/showing-antony-micallef-raw-intent-pearl-lam-galleries-hong-kong/#comments Fri, 27 May 2016 05:26:35 +0000 http://arrestedmotion.com/?p=300520 antony_micallef12

Pearl Lam Gallery is currently hosting a solo show by Antony Micallef (interviewed) at its Hong Kong Pedder Building space. Raw Intent includes an all new body of work created using oil with beeswax that "explore the relationships of the mechanics of artistic intent, representation, and the use of paint as a material for expressing emotions." After international success since he placed second in the BP Portrait Award 2000, and exhibitions at the National Academy of Fine Arts, Sofia, Bulgaria; the National Museum in Warsaw, Poland; The Royal Academy, London, UK; the ICA, London, UK; Tate Britain, London, UK; and Dallas Contemporary, Texas, USA, Micallef’s new works are a significant departure from his earlier artworks. Using heavy paint to create a abstract, sculpt-like figurative mass on a muted background, he pushes the impasto technique to the very border between painting and sculpture. The title of the exhibition, Raw Intent, shows the importance of the creation process as it "refers to a seemingly unmediated yet highly conscious process of manipulating the material during the act of painting." Furthermore, the installation itself represents different stages of working with the figure, ranging from a clear distinction between the figure and the background to a complete mix between the two. The depth and texture feel is further accented with adding simple shading to some of the works, which in combination with the large scale, creates a striking effect and almost separates the subject from the painting form. Though using the classic portrait composition as a base, the artist does not intend for his paintings to be read as portraitures. Instead, the depicted subject takes on its own life and existence and becomes a channel for exploring the hidden potential of the base material. Micallef's first Asian solo show in Hong Kong opened on 13th of May and it will stay on view until 30th of June. Discuss Antony Micallef here.]]>

Streets: JR @ The Louvre (Part II) http://arrestedmotion.com/2016/05/streets-jr-the-louvre-part-ii/ http://arrestedmotion.com/2016/05/streets-jr-the-louvre-part-ii/#comments Thu, 26 May 2016 23:21:27 +0000 http://arrestedmotion.com/?p=300564 13246247_1355869921096597_4250173068004852936_o

After a first look at a new intervention at the Louvre from JR (interviewed) earlier this week, here are photos of the completed project. Pasting over the iconic pyramid in his signature technique was a time-consuming undertaking, but the impressive result is a testament to the French street artist's artistic vision. Along with this "disappearance" trick, the TED winning artist will also be taking over the museum with conferences, masterclass, screenings, concerts, workshops on May 28th starting at 3pm. He further explains the project – “I will never forget this day. Today I’m going to make the Louvre Pyramid disappear. It’s quite crazy being Parisian, passing the pyramid so often, then today realising I can make changes to it and stick things on top of it to create my work. I will never forget this. I want to make the Louvre Pyramid disappear because I want people to see themselves alone, just their head and the Louvre. I find it funny seeing people taking selfies all day in front of the pyramid but always with their back to the Louvre. It says a lot about our society where people turn their back on things and focus on themselves. Today, that’s going to change… at least here at the Louvre.” Discuss JR here.]]>

Coming up on June 18th, Library Street Collective in Detroit will be opening up a solo show by graffiti legend Futura. Entitled NEW HORIZONS, the exhibition will feature imagery that fans of the street pioneer have come to love - gyroscopes, nebulae, and other abstracted structures as well as some of his pointman characters. The new work gives a nod to local culture with titles like Shelby YellowPistons, and Tiger Stripe that Motown residents will be sure to recognize. Also, in association with the showing, he will be unveiling a new series for PUBLIC MATTER, a rotating collection of large-scale pieces on view in the vibrant outdoor space of the BELT Alley.

Art16 returned to Olympia, London from 19–22 May for the fourth year of this contemporary art fair. More than 100 galleries were brought together from over 30 countries, along with not-for-profit exhibitors and commissioned-artist installations. With the founders of Art16 being the same team that launched Art Central Hong Kong, Art International Istanbul (postponed this year) and Sydney Contemporary, it was no surprise to sense a strong presence from Asian galleries. The high point and fresh discovery for AM was the stall by the Taiwanese gallery, Yiri Arts. The piece above is by Penny Byrne, 'Felled', 2014, Bronze and stain black patina, H100 x W205 x D87 cm. Fehily Contemporary (Australia). See below the variety of works that caught our eye at the fair.

With the founders of Art16 being the same team that launched Art Central Hong Kong, Art International Istanbul (postponed this year) and Sydney Contemporary, it was no surprise to sense a strong presence from Asian galleries. The high point and fresh discovery for AM was the stall by the Taiwanese gallery, Yiri Arts. The piece above is by Penny Byrne, 'Felled', 2014, Bronze and stain black patina, H100 x W205 x D87 cm. Fehily Contemporary (Australia). See below the variety of works that caught our eye at the fair.

Introducing: Google’s Data Center Mural Project http://arrestedmotion.com/2016/05/introducing-googles-data-center-mural-project/ http://arrestedmotion.com/2016/05/introducing-googles-data-center-mural-project/#comments Thu, 26 May 2016 15:29:26 +0000 http://arrestedmotion.com/?p=300501 googledatacentremuralproject12

With numerous street art/mural festivals being organized around the world, with the idea of bringing the finest street art to city centers and beautifying the urban area, Google recently took a slightly different approach to the concept with their Data Center Mural Project. The idea of this massive program is to beautify their large data centers around the globe and connect them with the people that drive and walk past them. Whether it’s sharing photos, searching the web, or translating languages, billions of requests are sent to these places every day, and people that work there are making sure these requests are fulfilled within the shortest possible time. Though these buildings typically aren’t much to look at, they literally provide humanity the lifestyle we're used to - they are actual physical locations where all the internet data is coming from and to. Google invited a group of local artists to create large size murals that will show a bit of the magic from the inside of these hubs on their outside. So far two out of four planned locations are finished - Jenny Odell's intricate Google Maps inspired mural painted on Oklahoma's data center in Mayes County, as well as Oli-B's abstract interpretation of ‘the cloud’ on Belgium-based data center facility in Saint-Ghislain. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xaZdt2isEKM]]>

Openings: Joel Daniel Phillips – “Belongings” @ Hashimoto Contemporary http://arrestedmotion.com/2016/05/openings-joel-daniel-phillips-belongings-hashimoto-contemporary/ http://arrestedmotion.com/2016/05/openings-joel-daniel-phillips-belongings-hashimoto-contemporary/#comments Wed, 25 May 2016 16:25:56 +0000 http://arrestedmotion.com/?p=300408 13221376_1000309033389823_8933563755144725405_o

Earlier this month, a show featuring new charcoal and graphite drawings on paper by Joel Daniel Phillips opened up at San Francisco's Hashimoto Contemporary. Belongings comprises  of mainly four large-scale portraits interesting paired with solitary objects (on similarly shaped paper) that serves as an extension of their characters. The locally-based based artist references the "ever-expanding class distinctions of the Mid-Market area" with his work. Phillips elaborates - "The drawings are a visual record of my striving to recognize unknown and unnoticed individuals through the tip of my pencil… I am fascinated by the intricacies and commonalities that we share as humans, and search for moments when our projected senses of self are transparent, allowing deeper, more truthful emotions to become visible.” Photo credit: Graham Holoch.
