ANTONY CARO Great Britain
Title: Black Russian ( 1984-1985).
Painted steal.
Αποφοιτος της Μηχανικης του Cambridge πανεπιστημιου, ηταν ηδη ο Antony Caro ( 1924) οταν αποφασισε να ασχοληθει με τη γλυπτικη, το 1946. Με εντονη την ιδιαιτερη προτιμηση του στην χρησιμοποιηση του σιδηρου σαν πρωτη και κυρια υλη στις γλυπτικες του φορμες, ο Caro ανοιξε νεο δρομο στη γλυπτικη που εχει πολλα συνδετικα στοιχεια στην εφαρμογη της αλλα και στην αισθητικη της με τη μηχανικη.

Antony Caro obtained a degree in Engineering from Cambridge before turning to sculpture in 1946. He became an assistant to Henri Moore and like his master, went on to teach and be an example for a new generation of sculptors. After a visit to David Smith in the United States he radically changed his work.
Whereas Moore only used stone and bronze, Caro went for industrial materials, iron sheets and beams, or - as in this case - half of a shipping buoy.This is a keeping with his original training as an engineer.
The sheets and beams are welded together and painted thw same colour. The abstact compositions of Caro are given to space a two-dimensional shape and integrated the sculpture with its surroundings. This is why the sculptures are not mounted on pedestals. This would only create distance between the piece of art and its viewer.

HULYA YILMAZ (1963) Nederland.
Title: Movement '09 Saranan Liba 2009.
Mixed material, fiberglass, polyester.
Αραβικης καταγωγης, η ολλανδεζα καλλιτεχνης Ηulya Yilmaz ειδικευεται στη 'μεταφορα πνευματισμου στη ζωη'. Στοιχεια των εμπνευσεων της στις γλυπτικες φορμες της Yilmaz, στοιχεια της φυσης, οπως ο αερας, το νερο και η φωτια. 

Hulya Yilmaz ( 1963 ) is a Dutch artist of Arabic origin. Her grandmother, who worked as a shaman healer, taught her how to take a spiritual approach to life. She finds her subject in the basic elements of nature, such as water, air and fire. 
In 2002 she embarked on a global study of movements on the water surface , which she compares with the information flows constantly circulating through the air and to which the water reacts like a skin.
When she became interested in the history of Suriname and the slave religion originating from West Africa, she emerged herself in Winti rituals, in which the use of water plays a fundamental part. She continued her research in Suriname, in and along the Suriname river which winds and meanders its mustard-coloured way through the landscape.
This resulted in the work Movement '09- Saranan Liba, in which she brought together all her experiences.
