Paintless Landscapes: Scenic Ar2rk Produced of Light & Shadow
Article by Urbanist, filed beneath Installation & Sound in the Ar2rk category.
A collection of unlikely (often discarded) objects coupled with a light source can develop wonderful city scenes, landscapes, portraits and a lot more in the hands of this artist.
Rashad Alakbarov hails from Azerbaijan and experiments with diverse resources and setups to flip 3-dimensional trash into rich 2-dimension displays of all shapes and sizes.
Some of these, including the prime set up featured right here, have been on show final year at the Fly to Baku Contemporary Art Exhibition at the De Pury Gallery in London, United kingdom.
A few pieces incorporate customized built-to-goal shapes, like plastic versions of paper airplanes in the prime illustration, even though others merely draw on urban junk or each day objects.
There is anything playful and informal about his strategy. Alakbarov takes inspiration from objects at hand to begin crafting skylines or other scenes that unfold partly from his imagination, but also in part from the nature of the supplies in each and every situation.
