Perseus slaying Medusa, Laurent-Honoré Marqueste - 1903
Fabergé Fractals by Tom Beddard
These latest sculptures by New York-based artist Amy Brener are something magical. Made of a combination of materials like resin, pigment, and glass (Brener describes these as “totemic structures…of an imagined future,”) these objects combine natural and artificial aesthetics to create something familiar yet strangely distant from a what we know. As the artist describes:
“Some sculptures may be markers for an unknown border, while others hint at vehicular function. Some surfaces are ordered into compositions that allude to touch-screen platforms, energy cells and the digital logic of a different reality. Other surfaces are left to chance: to crystallize, crack under pressure and weather with time. Common sculpture materials such as resin and concrete shed their associations and morph into geological forms. I enforce approximations of natural processes onto my sculptures. Notions of sedimentation, erosion and fossilization come into play.”

Tree of Life, burnished ceramic, 1979. 44 x 21 x 25. This tree of life was made for an exhibition in Monterey, Mexico. After the exhibition Carlos Espejel obtained the piece and the Markman’s purchased it from him at his shop in Mexico City’s Zona Rosa. Unlike the preceding trees, it is designed in the round rather than to be viewed frontally.
