Kadriye İnal’s “patchwork” paper sculptures capture humanity in both form and the imperfect, abstract beauty found in our seams. The artist’s work has also been called collage, though she has said that it exists “somewhere between three and two dimensions, between reality and fiction.”
Hans Hemmert uses balloon sculptures to explore the idea of space and form, having the objects take the place of human figures and massive structures. The artist evolved from the human-sized, yellow works of the 1990s to a recent assemblage that takes the shape of an enormous tank.
Using painted resin, wood, and metal, New York-based artist Jiannan Wu’s recent relief sculptures feature scenes ripped from urban environments. The artist often plays with perspective whether it’s his distorted “Selfie” series or a visit to the city’s subway backdrops. A statement says that Wu is always considering multiple dimensions in his work.
Franco Fasoli, also known as Jaz, is known for creating work that various wildly in scope, whether it’s his public murals or small bronze sculptures. In his gallery-friendly practice, his surreal examinations of the human condition and culture pack that humor and vibrancy in intimate doses.
