Artist Gregor Gaida‘s ‘Attaboys’ sculptures are typical of his previous work – his figuarative work often depicts aggressive people engaging with each other under unknown circumstances – as with these two aluminum boysWonderful. Gaida has this to day about his work:
The found footage is often no more than an impulse that is no longer discernible in the further development of the shape. Analogous to photography, my objects are three-dimensional snapshots. The characters are frozen in movement and often cropped along imaginary image borders. I transport the fragmented character of photos into the third dimension. Simultaneously, when dealing with color and options of shaping, painterly characteristics appear. Thus, the life-sized special interventions are formally attributed to sculpture but are equally part of painterly and photographic categories.
This work is currently being exhibited at PARROTTA Contemporary Art in Stuttgart until 4th August so if you happen to be in the city when not go have a look.
