Time with sense
The subject of transience of time, hours and figures in the last ranks high some years more and more in projects of many painters and designers. Did not become an exception and English creative producer Dominique Uilkoks, it come from Great Britain which made a series of a watch with malekhanky figures under glass.
Using the collections of old mechanical samples collected by it for many years, and having added to them tiny models of human figures, the designer developed a line of sculptural hours which possesses not only esthetic appeal, well and more the deepest sense. Mentioning one of the sharpest troubles of modern public society, Dominique simulated some of such situations in own works.
The designer special attached in a way small sculptures to minute and second arrows, having created that the animated scenes from our everyday life, being played directly in the face of the carrier of this wrist mini-work of art. Protest action which comes to an end more than peacefully: the girl-piketirovshchitsa gives the kiss to the fighter from protection. Or not such positive plot where young people never will give way to the senior, and the person, giving a hand friendship to another, will not receive reciprocity in reply.
On the official website of the artist it is possible to read the author’s comment to each scene and about the sense put in each of models. For example, so the designer commented the Love and Protest model: During protest action instead of the armed repressions let it is better protesting and the fighter will unite in a kiss».
Some hours Dominica Uilkoksa will be exposed in La Scatola gallery till January 10, 2012 and 2 more works – at auction of the modern art of Phillips de Pury till January 31, 2012.
