Luke O’Sullivan, a printmaker and sculptor based in Philadelphia, combines media and perspectives to detail fictional environments. In “Rise and Shine,” a new show at Paradigm Gallery, O’Sullivan offers a collection of new work that he says are about exploration and adventure. “I make sculptures that illustrate invented and undiscovered worlds,” the artist tells us.
Luke O’Sullivan (previously featured here) creates three dimensional art that brings the worlds of drawing and sculpture together. Inspired by dystopian science fiction films, O’Sullivan builds environments composed of peculiar buildings and subterranean lairs. Using textured façades as well as screen-printed surfaces, his latest series of works entitled “Cool Shelter” creates a fantastical scene of overworld and underworld labyrinths. The artist will present his latest series on Friday, July 24th at Paradigm Gallery in Philadelphia, PA. Hi-Fructose was invited to have a special exclusive preview into Luke O’Sullivan’s latest layered industrial landscapes.
Hi Fructose recently got wind of a unique installation by Luke O’Sullivan and company in Boston (last seen here). Their installation, entitled “Lovesick Café,” was created using salvaged materials and screen-printed wood. The group, called !ND!V!DUALS, creates site-specific installations typically inhabited or characterized by surreal situations and rather bizarre creatures. Their group, though humorous in nature and delivery, exhibits an innovation and certain inventiveness with their detailed craftsmanship. This excellent handiwork in turn showcases the humor, playfulness, and savagery that this time they are calling “Lovesick Café” – guaranteed to serve the most exotic and creative dishes in the city. Join Hi Fructose as we get an exclusive view into these creative chaps’ inventive world.
