Ohmygoodness! I’m loving the batch of new art this week. Every Thursday we welcome new peeps to UGallery and every week there is a different feel. The three guys this week cover the five human senses (except maybe taste) to remind us of our human selves. A sculptor covers touch, a landscape painter covers scent, and a photographer sight.
Embrace the physical world with the art from Orlando Dominguez, Sahin Karakoc, and Donald Olivier. Below is a little bit about their work. If you like what you see, let them know by leaving a comment on their profile pages and welcoming them to UGallery!
Orlando Dominguez. Brooklyn, New York
Metal is Orlando Dominguez’s medium of choice. This pliable material bends and shapes itself under pressure, but once it is set in its shape the metal becomes extremely durable. Like his metallic yoga sculptures, Orlando responds to the world with physical strength and emotional flexibility. In the eternal dance of life, Orlando’s art and philosophy is one that stretches a little beyond the ordinary to create formidable and memorable forms.
Sahin Karakoc. Culver City, California
Sahin Karakoc never touches modern technology when creating his art because the smell of paint is his inspiration. His landscapes are inundated with the power of scent. If a painter could capture the salty smell of marsh weeds or the crisp character of autumn leaves, his or her paintings would look like Sahin’s landscapes; omnipresent and ephemeral.
Donald Olivier. San Diego, California
As a fashion photographer, you learn a thing or two about color, texture, and drama. Stepping off the runway, Donald Olivier employs all three of these elements in his haute couture collages and primal photographs. He composes exquisite contours from inanimate objects like wood grains, watermarked rocks, and rusting metal for a fine finished product.
