About the Item

2015, Unique Artwork resin and pigments polychrome on fiberglass under protective plexiglass cap with LED 12 1/5 × 31 1/2 × 13 in - 31 × 80 × 33 cm The artwork is signed by the Artist , carved with edition number and date under the piece The artwork come accompanied with a formal Certificate of Authenticity issued by the studio of the Artist and signed by the Artist serie "Trilogy Feline : Tales of Claws of Legends" The genesis of Hiro Ando's inspiration for the iconic sculpture "Trilogy" within the "Neko Sculptural Symphony: Claws of Legends" series is a narrative woven with threads of cultural reverence, artistic innovation, and a profound exploration of feline mystique. Ando's affinity for the Neko, a symbol deeply embedded in Japanese folklore, served as the wellspring for the creation of "Trilogy." The trilogy of small cats, each measuring 25cm, became vessels through which Ando channeled the timeless allure and enigmatic qualities of these revered creatures. In delving into the cultural and mythological significance of the Neko, Ando found inspiration in the multifaceted nature of their symbolism—representing mystery, playfulness, and a spiritual connection to the unseen. The departure from traditional sculpture materials to embrace lush, vivid pigments marked a pivotal moment in Ando's artistic journey. The decision to completely cover each cat in a riot of colors was a departure from the subdued elegance often associated with sculptures. It was a deliberate choice to infuse vibrancy and life into the form, transforming each feline figure into a living canvas. The lush, vivid pigments became more than a mere artistic choice; they were a visual symphony echoing the kaleidoscope of emotions and personalities attributed to the Neko. The colors, ranging from deep greens to regal pinks, were a reflection of the varied facets of the feline realm. Ando's palette became a conduit for the expression of the ineffable qualities of the Neko—capturing the essence of their playful demeanor, mysterious allure, and timeless elegance. The protective plexiglass cap served a dual purpose in the narrative of "Trilogy." On one level, it became a transparent sanctuary, preserving the brilliance of the vibrant pigments within, shielding the cats from the passage of time. On another level, the plexiglass invited viewers into an intimate encounter with the encapsulated feline trio. The transparent barrier dissolved the boundary between observer and observed, allowing for a shared exploration of the vibrant hues encapsulated within. "Trilogy" stands as a testament to Ando's ability to fuse cultural reverence with artistic ingenuity. It becomes a symphony—a visual composition that resonates with the timeless tales of the Neko. Through the amalgamation of lush pigments, protective encasement, and cultural symbolism, Hiro Ando invites viewers to delve into the enigmatic world of feline legends—a world brought to life through the immersive embrace of color and form.

  • Integer Zero - Mixed Media Sculpture
    Located in Richmond, BC
    Originally a virtual visualist, Alikov has leaped into the practice of fine art and has gone beyond the visual. He produces conceptual artworks that blend the border of two-dimensional and three-dimensional art. The intricately-overlapped and embossed canvases, strips of gradient materials, drawn patterns and symbols create an illusionistic dimension. The hard edges, symmetrical curves and the non-narratives speak of scientific systems, futuristic notions, and fashion metaphors. Currently, he is working his way into the seventh “generation” of this series, which started with black and white, sharp-contrast, two-dimensional canvases, was developed into more pristine black fields, and currently progressed on, to mixed-media sculptural objects that he calls assemblages. The materiality aspect of the recent Generation 6 and Generation 7 makes it as if the artist is venturing from order to relative disorder, from simplicity to richness, from monotonic to chromatic. Either entangled, sewn together or carefully arranged and layered, the materials such as nylon straps and buckles, translucent glassine, reflective fabrics, zippers, elastic fasteners, and hand-made mini domes show a bit of the veteran visual effect artist’s “cyber soul”, which is a liberating approach to fine art. Alikov’s exhibition at Lipont...
