 photo image1_zpse68cac64.png  photo image2_zps15c6fa40.png " In my work, whether stone and oil, metal and wood, or cardboard and papier-mâché alchemy and automatism are linked together in the cognitive creative process. Intention becomes line, line becomes shape, shape becomes form, and form becomes content. In my work I find myself either suppressing or indulging of my own desire to associate personal narrative to the raw visual information inherent in the material and process. Construction, destruction and reconstruction are symbiotic elements in the creative process allowing the image to fluctuate between abstraction and representation, truth and illusion, personal and archetypal." - Christian Rex van Minnen  photo image3_zps9dbfbaf8.png  photo image_zps0e15f3f8.png

Each sculpture only lasts for few hours before the sugar compresses back to its original crystal form. Exhibited at the SFAI studios and All You Can Eat -exhibition at Diego Rivera Gallery & Swell gallery in San Francisco 2012.

In 1996 he was nominated for the annual Turner Prize. Horsfield described his work (photographs of the environments and people around him) as, "intimate in scale but its ambition is, uncomfortable as I find it, towards an epic dimension, to describe the history of our century, and the centuries beyond, the seething extent of the human condition." He often prints the photographs many years after they were first taken, bringing into contrast memory and the present reality[original research? He lives and works in London and New York.  photo CH_2011_Veduta-parziale-della-mostra-5_Galleria-Artiaco_foto-Francesco-Squeglia_zps86758238.jpg  photo CH_2011_Veduta-parziale-della-mostra-6_Galleria-Artiaco_foto-Francesco-Squeglia_zps02478284.jpg  photo CH_2011_Veduta-parziale-della-mostra-8_Galleria-Artiaco_foto-Francesco-Squeglia_zpsf7483a67.jpg

Flow by Baptiste Debombourg

 photo 01flow_zps288b0d1d.jpg  photo 05flow_zps2cab3449.jpg  photo 09flow_zpsb27f0703.jpg 'Baptiste Debombourg’s solo exhibition at the Centre d'Art Actuel l'Oeil de Poisson in Québec showcased Flow. The work – which is made entirely from car windscreens – is meant to mirror the devastating effects of mass consumption. Flow’s cumulative mass of materials is arranged in such a way that it resembles a giant wave – much like those in apocalyptic films such as 2012 or The Day After Tomorrow. Debombourg invites the audience to question society and self-induced finiteness. Do we swim in a sea of windscreens? Or do we remain under the glass, suffering as if trapped beneath sheets of ice?'
