Oliver Tiura - Action Sculpture
November 29 to December 19, 2021
Location: Art Space Connect and Founders Galleries
Presented by: Oliver Tiura
Opening Reception: Saturday, December 4, 2021 from 2 pm to 4 pm
To date Oliver has had over seventy-five one man and group exhibitions in a variety of countries including Mexico, France, Italy, Switzerland, the US, and Canada. He works in a wide variety of sculptural and 2-D media.
His intellectual, conceptual goals here express structurally the intriguing myriad combinations of the natural and geometric worlds. Demonstrating the ebb and flow of all life including earth, water, air, and, especially the vibrations of majestic sounds. All life factors, intermingling, thrown together, quickly parting. Differing states coming together in worldly balance. All the fluid dynamics of life, the mingling of colours, textures, all that we experience, fascinatingly connected.
In whole, it is for Oliver, the symphony of life.
“Oliver’s sculptures are like reptiles that grasp the earth, moving about at the same time within their molecular frames endeavouring to expand, rise up and breathe, as if they were a synthesis of a conflict between earthly and aerial forces, between solid rigidity and elasticity. A triumph of will.” – Description of Oliver’s show in Mexico City by beloved Mexican sculptor Federico Silva.
Oliver’s working method is analogous to the Abstract Expressionists. Gestural statements of instant inclinations, accomplished from the deep experiences of his life’s learnings. They are, in a very real sense, ACTION SCULPTURE. As with expressionism, they are spontaneously created, changed, twisted, turned until his soul is satisfied at both the progression and the ever-changing results to the point of completion, all imbued with painterly textural surfaces. Come and be challenged, we welcome you!
All are welcome to attend the opening reception on Saturday, December 4, 2021 from 2 pm to 4 pm in the Art Space Connect Gallery at the centre.
