For Use » Tuft Zürich TUFT is an evolution of the tape concept into a more permanent,self-standing, transferable structure. Adhesive tape is used to generate the primary form of the object. The organic surface of the carpet is later achieved through precise division of the shape in two-dimensional segments, enabling traditional tufting technology. Rough, industrial surface of the back side of the carpet is deliberately exposed to serve as a counterpoint to the invitingly soft, carnal interior. Rosa Verloop - Wie ben Ik.

Kudzu Taxonomy and nomenclature[edit] Kudzu seedpods Propagation[edit] Uses[edit] Soil improvement and preservation[edit] Kudzu has been used as a form of erosion control and also to enhance the soil.

Arnulf Rainer Austrian painter, printmaker and photographer. He had almost no academic training as an artist. From 1948 to 1951 he produced Surrealistic drawings representing underwater scenes and mystical forms, rendering these fantastic images in pencil as a densely worked surface. Deeply suspicious of rationality, he investigated the potential of dreams, madness and the subconscious; to these ends he co-founded the Hundsgruppe under the influence of French Surrealism in 1950. He began to turn away from fantastic Surrealism. From 1951 to 1954 he worked on a series entitled Blind Drawings (e.g. 1952; see 1988 exh. cat., p. 27), in which he studied optical disintegration and the destruction of form, replacing pictorial composition and illusion with the immediacy of accidentally encountered textures. From 1956 Rainer became concerned with religious theories and practices, particularly in a group of paintings dominated by cruciform shapes. Bibliography O.

Mountains of Books Become Mountains I thought I’d seen every type of book carving imaginable, until I ran across these jaw dropping creations by Guy Laramee. His works are so sculptural, so movingly natural in their form, they’ve really touched me. His works are inspired by a fascination with so-called progress in society: a thinking which says the book is dead, libraries are obsolete and technology is the only way of the future. His thoughts: “One might say: so what? See Also INCREDIBLE 3D ILLUSTRATIONS JUMP OUT OF THE SKETCHBOOK Carving into the discarded stacks of books, he has created fantastic, romantic landscapes which remind us that though our fascinations and the value we put on different ideas have changed, we as a species have not evolved that much. “Mountains of disused knowledge return to what they really are: mountains.

Günter Brus Tal y como señalaba Manuel Asensi en el catálogo de la exposición Günter Brus. Quietud nerviosa en el horizonte, para entender el trabajo de Brus “es necesario tener en cuenta su obsesión por los límites: entre el arte y el mundo, entre las artes (teatro, poesía, pintura, situación, escritura material, etc.), entre los interiores y los exteriores (lo que hay dentro del cuerpo y lo que hay fuera de él), entre lo animado y lo inanimado, entre la muerte y la vida”. Günter Brus (Ardning, Austria, 1938) fue, junto a Otto Muehl, Hermann Nitsch y Rudolf Schwarzkogler, uno de los máximos representantes del accionismo vienés, un movimiento que a mediados de la década de los sesenta convulsionó la escena cultural austriaca al llevar el arte al terreno de la acción y utilizar el cuerpo humano como principal soporte y material artístico. A finales de los años cincuenta, Brus realizaba una obra pictórica muy próxima al expresionismo abstracto. Actividad relacionada Visita comentada por Günter Brus
