Period & Style
Exclusive Episode #037: Gabriel Orozco discusses recent paintings from his ongoing "Samurai Tree" series, including the works "Fugaz", "Tuttifruti" and "Red Roots" (all 2008), and the computer animation "Dandelion Animation" (2008), shown as part of the exhibition "Gabriel Orozco: Recent Work" (2008) at Marian Goodman Gallery in New York. Gabriel Orozco's sculptures and photographs disrupt conventional notions of reality. Drawing our attention to slips in logic, philosophical games, and hidden geometries, Orozco uncovers the extraordinary aspects of the seemingly everyday. His use of humble materials and means (graphite on bone, a ball of clay, a 35mm camera) engages the imagination through its disarming simplicity and intimacy.
