The artist first chose the material for its low price and availability, but since then it has come to influence his concept of form. With their crude physicality and cracked surfaces, his sculptures are redolent of ruins, but their forms are more futuristic than antiquated. A person loved me (2012), a towering structure of interconnected pipes created for the New Museum’s 2012 triennial, was a largely site-responsive work for which Villar Rojas and his team improvised new working methods, applying clay to pieces of polystyrene. My dead family (2009) portrayed a life-size whale, made primarily of clay, wood, and rocks, lying beached in a forest in Patagonia. His pieces are typically destroyed after being exhibited, becoming a sort of temporary performance. “I really love the idea of not having a body of work,” says Villar Rojas, who lists comic books and grunge music as influences.

In my artwork I am dealing with questions of identity, explore notions of age(ing) and the realization that we all share a deephumanness that is comprised of memories, emotions, and a collective (superficial) awareness of meanings.

In a practice that engages with images and public space in a militantly active way, he employes numerous methods and materials - including stickers, plastic bags, spray paints and even the human body itself - in an effort to enliven the banality and sterility of the modern city."  photo 1375706509_10962-LON-JJOG-12-08_02_zpsymna2pmb.jpg  photo Upstream-Jeroen-Jongeleen_zps6kq7slh8.jpg

Gottfried Helnwein

 photo 2014-12-23-27.GOTTFRIEDHELNWEIN_zpsegzrlqhf.jpg  photo Gottfried Helnwein Loacutegi Cult 0_zpskyieshl7.jpg Gottfried Helnwein (born 8 October 1948) is an Austrian-Irish visual artist. He has worked as a painter, draftsman, photographer, muralist, sculptor, installation and performance artist, using a wide variety of techniques and media. Helnwein studied at the University of Visual Art in Vienna (Akademie der Bildenden Künste, Wien). His early work consists mainly of hyper-realistic watercolors, depicting wounded and mistreated children, as well as performances – often with children – in public spaces.[1] Helnwein is concerned primarily with psychological and sociological anxiety, historical issues and political topics. As a result of this, his work is often considered provocative and controversial. Helnwein lives and works in Ireland and Los Angeles.  photo Gottfried Helnwein Loacutegi Cult x13_zpsx3vmqtol.jpg  photo 1_zpsws3avhga.jpg
