Beautiful installation by Urs Fischer at The Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles (MOCA) titled ‘Horses Dream of Horses‘. It is composed of 1,500 blue resin raindrops made with plaster, resin paint, steel, nylon filament, and it is suspended in the air like a frozen moment in time.

Though Tim Maguire was born in England in 1958, his family moved to Australia in 1959 where he resided until 1992. Maguire is regarded as one of Australia’s country’s most significant artists. The artist’s current practice involves the painterly reconstruction of digital imagery through a process that refers to printing technology. His large-scale paintings mimic the appearance of smooth, mechanical reproduction but their surfaces are disrupted by random elements of physicality; drips, runs and blotches interrupt their reading as purely printed images. According to Maguire, ” My chemical interventions are more about breaking imagery down, exposing the process that leads to photographic illusion. I want the imagery to be more raw, with its component parts fitting less neatly, and any illusionism to be tentative.” Maguire currently divides his time between the U.K. and France. He has exhibited his work extensively in Australia and Europe for over two decades. The artist’s work appears in the permanent collection of the National Gallery of Australia, the Art Galleries of New South Wales, Western Australia and South Australia, and the Kunsthalle Nuremberg. Maguire’s paintings are included in several major public and private collections in the United States, Australia, and throughout Europe.

” The title of the show, ‘Become the Wind’ is as much a provocation as it is a description of a moment. As a provocation, the phrase challenges you to flow between a tangible state and an intangible essence. As a description, the phrase refers to that moment or state of mind where anything can be. I identify ‘the Wind’ in the title of this show with a state of the self defined by the constant pull and push of two opposing forces – one is that of constantness and the other is that of becoming. It is a state of self that is essential and stable but one that is also continuously evolving.” – Sakshi Gupta

‘There are images that become abstract and there are abstractions that become images. Pieter Vermeersch is not an abstract painter as such but rather an image maker; those mental images he finds in reality by photographic means. There is no such thing as pure abstraction. Everything is connected to some part of reality. The image of different degrees of luminosity or the image of the colour of the rainbow’s prism for instance, they fascinate Pieter Vermeersch by their capacity to represent a recognisable image, both identifiable and abstract, while emphasizing the process of image apparition, this “meta-image” in which time progression and space definition take place.’ (via CCNOA)
