Brazilian artist Henrique Oliveira’s powerful recycled wood art installations snake through their exhibition spaces like massive living trees that burst out of walls and through ceilings. Oliveira scours the streets of Sao Paulo to gather plywood, which he then separates into layers and combines to create his massive “tridimensionals” sculptures. The stunning mixed media pieces are a combination of sculpture, painting and architecture.
I’m posting this dopey picture because this was taken on Gary’s birthday last year and it’s Gary’s birthday again here in Tennessee and soon California. I really love Gary and I hope that this day and year is a good one for him. It’s a shame I can’t be there to meet 21 year old Gary. 21 year old Gary is going to be a riot.
