CONFINEMENTS: Matt Scobey

By Sybaris Collection

For about 10 years, Matt Scobey belonged to the Denver art scene. For the American artist, art can be found anywhere: an art gallery, a living room, or the street. His website is a window to find links between design and art. The Remnant Suite piece perhaps synthesizes everything: “Collected scrap Marble from various contractors. When people have custom countertops/surfaces designed for home or business it often results in odd size cutofffs that are too small for resale and are either thrown away or recycled. After collecting the Marble I came up with a dimension/measurement that would utilize as much material as possible and hired a local stone cutter to cut each piece down to size. This resulted in enough material for the creation of 6 stacking sculptures/objects. I then had acrylic cut to scale and drilled holes in each piece of Marble in order to embed neodymium magnets that serve to hold the various pieces of material in place.”

For Ray Mark Rinaldi, from The Denver Post,“Scobey, who often uses objects such as discarded water bottles and pill jars, and deflated basketballs as molds, connects his work to some of the great movements and moments of modern culture, Marcel Duchamp’s “Readymades,” which turned found objects into art, and El Lissitzky’s overlap of art and architecture.”

Matt Scobey joins the Sybaris Collection Confinement Series, presenting the performance Num. 3 in which the artist set up an outdoor instlation in Marfa Texas.

 

Performance Num. 3, ” Confinements by Matt Scobey”

 

Most of the material I’ve been working with has been initially used for other projects or things I had around the studio before quarantine. Wood I use as form were previously used for pedestals. Cast Acrylic was bought as scrap for a discounted rate from a supplier I’ve worked with for years. The concrete had mostly been purchased prior to covid as well.

10 works to meet Leonora Carrington

By Sybaris Collection

Leonora Carrington Moorhead is one of the most important referents of Surrealism. Born in Lancashire in 1917, she spent her first years of life in a neo-Gothic-style mansion, where she began to devise some of the creatures that haunted her throughout life: fantastic animals, specters and memories where dreams merge with reality. To commemorate the mourning anniversary of the Mexican artist (who disappeared on May 25, 2011) we recovered 10 of her most emblematic works.

Art Advisory, The Provocation Column

An Interview with José Chi Dzul

By Regina de Con Cossío

For José Chi Dzul, the visual arts are a space for experimentation to project ideas and discourses about the culture system, the art system and society in general. Born on July 16, 1990, his first approach to the visual arts happened through the label technique. “Although many think that it is not an artistic manifestation, I say the opposite because it has techniques and knowledge: there is an analysis of visual composition that provides a powerful message that abstract thought produces. For many it is only a job. However, working with signage is working with written language to connect experiences and thoughts. ”
