Christian Engelmann

a-zimmer21

This is a picture of a picture projected onto the scene that the picture was taken of. Duh. Needless to say, artist Christian Engelmann likes to mess with people. His art is often interactive and always maintains a sense of playfulness aimed at eliciting exaggerated double-takes. Engelmann tries to jolt people out of their every day state of being and remind us that the universe is full of surprises.

Cris Bruch at Elizabeth Leach Gallery

Bruch_Blind_e

Cris Bruch’s work might be found on a more tasteful version of planet Pandora. His shapes have this mysterious, organic quality that I imagine existing on an alien planet populated by giant blue people who are really into saving the environment and stuff. His exhibition at Elizabeth Leach Gallery, Gather and Wait, from July 1st – August 28th explores the artist’s creative process through a series of drawings, photographs of works in progress, and completed sculptures.

Pascal Bernier

Tableau de Chasse 1

Pascal Bernier’s art work depicts an ongoing theme about human and animal relationships. This Brussels based sculptor uses and manipulates different representation of animals to take a detached look at social behavior.  Some of Bernier’s work is a social commentary about game hunting (and what is done to the animal’s body after it is killed); Bernier work represents animals in a very sad manner questioning your own ethics on animal rights.

Bruce Ingram’s sculptures feel both natural and fantastic. Like discovering a new cave system or a perfectly preserved dead hummingbird in your garage (which really happened to me; the bird thing not the cave thing). I’ve always felt like one of the signs of “good” art is that you kind of forget that someone had to make it. Ingram’s work feels like it manifested itself–like the world meant for it to be.

Even if you’re the type of individual to deny most slightly cynical (or perhaps they’re just simply honest) thoughts, you’ll too appreciate Joseph Barbaccia’s tangible commentary.
