GABRIEL OROZCO-MY ALL TIME FAVORITE!

Filed under: gabriel orozco — Tags: — jherzlinger @ 7:02 am

OK, so we all know my love of art that sometimes pushes boundaries.  Much like the way I think.  But GABRIEL OROZCO is truly a genius.  His work really speaks to me, and to know my love of independence you would understand why.

I hope you enjoy this post!

Much Love,

Jamie


With a body of work that is unique in its formal power and intellectual rigor, Gabriel Orozco (Mexican, b. 1962) emerged at the beginning of the 1990s as one of the most intriguing and original artists of his generation—and one of the last to come of age in the twentieth century. Orozco resists confinement to a single medium,

roaming freely and fluently among drawing, photography, sculpture, installation, and painting. From one project to the next, he deliberately blurs the boundaries between the art object and the everyday environment, instead situating his contributions in a place that merges “art” and “reality,” whether in exquisite drawings

made on airplane boarding passes or in sculptures made from recovered trash.

 

Many of Orozco’s works—which are often created specifically for the occasion of an exhibition—have become indisputable classics of 1990s art, such as the Citroën automobile surgically reduced to two-thirds its normal width (La DS, 1993) and a human skull covered with a graphite grid (Black Kites, 1997).
