Brancusi

Artist Spotlight: Sergio Camargo

September 12, 2018

While creating a traditional mold of his hand, Camargo was taken by the range of possibilities that lay on the outside of the plaster cast where his fingers protruded. Though typically discarded, it was the external plaster that offered the “rhythm of contraction and expansion” that he had been searching for. While in Paris in 1961, Camargo began to associate with major figures from the Op art and kinetic art movements. During this period, in 1969, Camargo first discovered the method for his iconic monochromatic relief sculptures, such as Untitled (Relief No. 261) (1969).

Appropriation artist Mike Bidlo is best known for his “Masterpieces Series,” for which he produced precise replicas of canonical works by modernist masters. Bidlo’s homages deliberately emulate the works of those mythologized as artistic geniuses, such as Andy Warhol, Marcel Duchamp, and Pablo Picasso. ‘Not Brancusi’ (1985) mimics Constantin Brancusi’s famed marble sculpture Mademoiselle Pogany, in this case carved from wood, not stone.
