Beau Stanton

Beau Stanton | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it

A painter and muralist, Stanton creates work ranging in size from tiny eye miniatures to large-scale murals ornamenting entire building facades.  The work combines classical oil painting with intricate patterns inspired by ancient architecture, letterpress ornaments, and decayed infrastructure.  In search for historical reference, Stanton begins his artistic process by exploring historic buildings and abandoned sites in the NYC area and beyond collecting photo references, Victorian ephemera, and antiquated machinery. These artifacts often appear in Stanton’s paintings as visual cogs in heavily ornamented machine-like compositions. The initial studies of these objects are then distilled into highly ornate compositions utilizing a variety of techniques including ink renderings, digital media, and screen printing. Finally, the pieces are fully rendered in delicate layers of oil paint, manipulating focus, light and perspective.

Omy

Omy | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it

Behind OMY Design & Play are two Parisian graphic designers : Elvire Laurent & Marie-Cerise Lichtlé. They share the same artistic sensibility and passion for design, and after graduating together from the L’école des Beaux-Arts in Paris, they decided to open their own graphic arts studio. In 2012, having both recently become mothers, they felt the need to change their approach to design. The logical step was to develop their own line of products, this first collection was born out of that desire and enthusiasm to create. They imagined a new creative concept in an unexpected format, which today has become their classic : the giant coloring roll.

Chris Cole

Chris Cole | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it

Chris Cole creates moving creatures and surreal images of avian and aquatic life that are inseparable from the industrialized and mechanical world we live in. Smooth plant-like shapes are connected with heavy bolts; tendons, seed-pods, and seaweed seem to be screwed to washers and bearings; fins and wings are animated by bicycle chains and motors, melding nature with the mechanized world. Chris has spent most of his life in the small towns of the Northwest. Proximity and the abundance of wilderness heavily influenced his subject matter, though he always gravitated toward the abstract. He began painting as a teenager and, uncomfortable in the classroom, has developed his self-taught style of abstract surrealism. As a kid, Chris was fascinated with machinery, especially anything he could take apart and alter or refashion. The attraction was initially based in physics and mechanical potential rather than aesthetics. In the late 1970’s, his family moved to Omaha and Chris started hanging out with kids who tricked-out their bikes- covering them with reflectors or fur, chain steering wheels, etc. This early exposure to the integration of aesthetics with mechanical function had resounding effects on him. Bikes continued to play a predominant roll in Chris’s life – he was 12 when he got a job repairing bikes after school and as an adult he went on to spend nearly two decades as a professional bike mechanic. Working on bikes dramatically shaped his understanding of machinery, and became the basis for his kinetic sculptures.

François Delarozière

François Delarozière | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it

Born in Marseille in 1963, François Delarozière chooses the path of fine arts following five years of agricultural studies, taking full advantage of these years to explore all techniques associated with visual arts. In 1983 in Aix en Provence, he meets the company Royal de Luxe with whom he embarks upon a long companionship focused on street theatre. Most notably, he designs and leads the construction of The Giant, The Rhinoceros, The Little Giant, The Giraffes and The Little Girl Giant… His mother is a musician and father a DIY genius. François covers his drawing pads in sketches of fantastical machines, carefully illustrating all aspects of their workings. “I like the insides of machines to be visible, their architecture, cogs and pulleys, so that we get a feel for how the thing is made.” In 1999, he creates La Machine, a non-profit organisation, constructing theatre sets, carousels for children and machines for productions. As artistic director of the company, François Delarozière ceaselessly explores the art of moving machines and their capacity to arouse emotion in the spectator. In this respect, his approach to street theatre is more visual design than narrative. In 2003, wishing to involve themselves in the ongoing major urban regeneration project in Nantes, François Delarozière and Pierre Orefice propose several drawings to Jean Marc Ayrault, Mayor and President of Nantes Métropole. These would become Les Machines de l’Île, located on the Western point of Nantes Island, as part of the urban regeneration programme led in association with the architect Alexandre Chémétoff. These cultural and touristic facilities are inaugurated in 2007 and open the door to City Machines. These permanently located moving architectures bring dynamics into public spaces, as can be seen in Les Animaux de la Place in La Roche Sur Yon. As a designer and builder, François Delarozière also contributes to the architectural refurbishment of the Channel Theatre in Calais with architect Patrick Bouchain.

François Delarozière is also a scenographer and director. As such, he started the Le Grand Répertoire-Machines de Spectacle, an exhibition-show presented between 2003 and 2006 in Nantes, Calais, Toulouse, Anvers, Marseilles and Paris and which attracted more than 700,000 spectators. In 2003 he creates La Symphonie Mécanique, combining the world of classical music and mechanical sounds. This philarmotechnical piece was co-written with Mino Malan. In 2008, Les Mécaniques Savantes are presented as a world-wide exclusive for Liverpool, European Capital of Culture. This mechanical bestiary is also presented the following year in Japan for the 150th anniversary of the opening of the port of Yokohama. In 2010, a new production Le Dîner des petites Mécaniques is created, showing a new way to prepare and present food, whilst the Expédition Végétale and its team of botanists take flight. His latest creation, “Long Ma Jing Shen”, stages a Dragon-Horse created for the 50th anniversary of Franco-Chinese diplomatic relations in Beijing in 2015.

Scale Modelers World

Scale Modelers World | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it
A scale model is most generally a physical representation of an object, which maintains accurate relationships between all important aspects of the model, although absolute values of the original properties need not be preserved. This enables it to demonstrate some behavior or property of the original object without examining the original object itself. The most familiar scale models represent the physical appearance of an object in miniature, but there are many other kinds. Scale models are used in many fields including engineering, architecture, film making, military command, salesmanship and hobby model building. While each field may use a scale model for a different purpose, all scale models are based on the same principles and must meet the same general requirements to be functional. The detail requirements vary depending on the needs of the modeler. To be a true scale model, all relevant aspects must be accurately modeled, such as material properties, so the model's interaction with the outside world is reliably related to the original object's interaction with the real world

Jean-Pierre Formica

Jean-Pierre Formica | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it
Born in Uchaid (Gard) in 1946, Jean-Pierre Formica lives and works between Paris and Aigues Mortes. He is a graduate of the Ecole des Beaux Arts of Paris and Montpelier. He lectures at the Ecole Nationale d’Architecture Val de Seine.
Since the 1970s Jean-Pierre Formica has drawn his inspiration from Mediterranean culture. He works on bull fighting and mythological themes and in this way on memory, traces, prints, ac- cumulation, sedimentation. An approach which finds its expression in paintings, drawings, wash drawings but also engravings. His path crossed that of Christian Lacroix with whom he collabo- rated on several haute couture projects.
From the 1990s onwards, he executed the series “story in a story”: lunch on the lawn, Sardana- pale, homage to Bacon, Tarzan or also Odalisque. After having neutralised his “emblems” by using them in a repetitive system, he imbues them with a generic character. A painter above all else, he offers us paintings drawn from the genealogy of image but above all the substance of which it is made. This work constructed from fragments and repetition becomes a whole. The apparition of another figure takes place, that of a world of imaginary form: paintings, water colours, charcoal drawings lead to the birth of the expression of a new nature. He has had exhibitions at the Chapelle des Jésuites in Nîmes, the Musée des Oudayat in Rabat, Fortant de France in Sète, Musée de Toulon, Musée de Montbéliard, Institut français in Tel Ha- viv. Starting in 2000, his sculptures increasingly moved centre stage of his work. First of all earthenware or bronze made from moulds, a kind of modern archaeology that culminate in the resurfacing of water in salt sculptures: gnarled forms, hybrid amphora or indeed thousands of mannequins in a buried army. He has presented this new nature to MAMAC in Nice, the Espace Paul Riquet in Béziers, or indeed at the Espace Vallès in Grenoble. He was commissioned for the Nuit blanche 2008 where he presented his installation of a salt army. In 2010, it invested the Pommery cellars experience for No. 7 for which a non-standard Beaux Arts Magazine will be dedicated to inaugurate the space and Pommery Liege. In 2012 he did two exhibitions at the beaux arts Muséum and at the beaux arts school of Nimes. His work on bullfighting has never left. Drawings, wash drawings, sketches, books are always de- veloped bullfight. It will be released in the spring with Actes Sud a book on bullfighting books.

Mark Bryan

Mark Bryan | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it

As a child of the Fifties and Sixties, born and raised in Southern California, Bryan could not avoid soaking up the pop culture and angst of that time and place. He was fascinated by cheesy Sci-Fi and horror movies, super hero comics, Mad Magazine, Salvador Dali, The Twilight zone, Zap Comics, etc…….. All of those influences plus the “duck and cover” mentality of the Red Scare had their shots at a sensitive mind. In addition to the constant threat of atomic annihilation, the Civil Rights Movement, Vietnam War, and the Kennedy and King assassinations further provoked a political awareness and a sense that all is not right with the human species. At an early age art became a way for Bryan to deal with and make sense of the world. When the time came to choose an occupation Bryan studied architecture briefly but soon realized art was his best path to free expression. While attending Otis Art Institute in Los Angeles (Master of Fine Arts, 1974), Bryan took up with the early founders of the Chicano Art movement (Los Four). They introduced him to the Mexican Muralists’ work of the early 20th century and the value of a tradition of accessible work with social/political content. This realization combined with his early influences have come together in his work to create a unique and engaging brew. The continuing wars, terrorism, political hi-jinks, and the deteriorating environment have only reinforced his early perspective and provide a never ending supply of subject matter to work with. In spite of the disturbing nature of his topics, Bryan always manages to portray them in a humorous and seductive fashion. Although most known for his political work savaging the Bush administration, Bryan also directs many of his efforts inward, producing work from the imagination. At first impression, this surreal and whimsical work seems just for fun but usually contains underlying symbolic comment about life in these times and human nature in general. Bryan has exhibited his work throughout the US, Canada, Europe and Japan. His work appears on numerous satirical and political web sites across the US and internationally. It has also been featured as illustration and cover art for publications, including Juxtapoz and Adbusters magazines. Bryan has lived on the Central Coast of California for the past 37 years and tries to paint and surf as much as possible. He has a son, a daughter, three granddaughters, a grandson and a grateful attitude.
