Henrique Oliveira: Tridimensionals

  • Posted by SHFT on January 30, 2012 in Art
  • Brazilian artist Henrique Oliveira gives trashed pieces of wood new life with these sweeping installation works he calls "Tridimensionals". To create the works, Oliveira gathers weathered plywood from streets and construction sites in Sao Paulo, then separates the layers and reconstitutes them as massive mixed media pieces that combine sculpture, painting and architecture. The swirling, bulging "Tridimensionals" burst from gallery walls in curvacious organic forms, addressing questions of decay and rebirth. Beautiful.
