Guardianes by Xavier Mascaró

Monday, January 4th, 2010

Saw these amazing outdoor iron sculptures ‘Guardianes’ by Madrid & New York based artist Xavier Mascaró in Plaza Nueva, Seville just before Christmas. The exhibition runs until January 20th 2010 and if you are passing Seville, it is well worth the visit.

“To the Stars”

Saturday, November 21st, 2009

Two years ago I visited New York and was fortunate enough to catch a Martin Puryear exhibition in the Museum of Modern Art. The two photos below of Ad Astra (2007), really don’t do the impressive piece justice. The Latin phrase, Ad Astra meaning ‘To the Stars’ – is a fitting name for the a sculpture whose powerful presence really captivated its viewers. Puryear’s work is best seen in person and I was fortunate enough to appreciate it in the a fantastic space at MoMA. I would strongly recommend a visit to see his work.
