This is a link to the exhibition at del Mano Gallery del Mano Gallery (http://www.delmano.com/exhibitions/2009/mainExhibitions/HansJakobWeissfl/exhibition_01.htm)

There's some interesting work here (as always) but the collaborations are the ones I find the most compelling.
Enjoy

Josh

p.s. if you haven't already seen the Michelle Holzapfel exhibition see the past exhibition list!:oo:

Technically clever . Could just have as easily been made with plastic on a metal lathe , most of them .
Any warmth that the wood may have had has been machined out .

And to think Hans Weissflog was selling some of his 50mm dia boxes for $au200.00 at a function in Qld. a couple of years ago. He said they would bring $us2000.00 in USA galleries.
I knew I should have bought one!!

Their work alone is certainly impressive but not really my cup of tea. The collaborations are outstanding but as fan of Jacques Vesery's work, I might be a bit biased. :U

Perhaps Tex, better yet is to be exhibited in the same gallery. :2tsup:


Whilst I like the discipline and technical excellence, I kinda lean with Jock on this one. Horses for courses I guess,

True, but no chance of that. Am lucky just to have stuff in a couple small, local galleries, just so I can say it's there. Might even sell a piece some day.
