Simple objects are transformed into artforms, in a conceptual view of strategies, where culture, language and signs represent a system that can be understood and decoded by the public. The artworks will always materialize more in favor of the theory and become an imaginary intentions of a provocative potential. Two young contemporary artists are able to show with their creations how conceptual art can get in relation with us:
Corey Bartle-Sanderson is an artist who lives and works in London. Recently he graduated in Fine Arts at the Kingston University. Corey has lived in Antwerp, Belgium, where he exhibited his first works “Be Happy”, showing his young attitude in the artistic world. The art of Corey explores sculpture and photography, where his works give an important answer to the contemporary young art. In his creations he treated the art of food and new media to get to explore the boundaries of photography. The final artist works are hybrid pieces that play with the photographic ideas in an aesthetic sculpture. The central concept of his work is the exploration of the daily life appeal, where objects are sometimes overlooked and invisible in this confusion, Corey interrupting our daily life plays with the ignore aspects of the ready made. The artist with his surrealistic view go beyond the monotony, with an artistic eye always in alert for beauty.
Lina Forsgren is a Swedish artist. She graduated in Visual Communication at Beckmans College of Design in 2014. Today Lina Forsgren works as a freelance graphic designer in Stockholm. In her young career she worked for Invest in Sweden and contributed to the realization of some works for Absolut Vodka. In her creations the artist combines the techniques of drawing and graphic design. She’s inspired by the forms of objects, feminism, politics and our daily lives to explore the boundaries between the real and the surreal. The young designer celebrates her artistic vision of consumption in our contemporary world, where we consumers are manipulated by industry. For her creations she uses various techniques, her artworks can be completely digital, painted or in the form of installation or in a photographic series. Objects and environments of life tell, the meaning of her realizations is given by the background, there aren’t real rules about what is right or wrong in her art. The artistic aim of Lina is to go beyond the usual art to which we are accustomed.
