Adoro i documentari sugli artisti, sono spesso sorprendenti e arricchiscono la percezione che abbiamo delle opere. Hart Perez mi ha mandato questo ritratto di Derik Van Beers,un ceramista che lavora prevalentemente con l'immagine del teschio.
Ecco "I teschi di Derik Van Beers":

Working exclusively with the primal image of the skull, the art of Van Beers is meant to provoke themes of lost innocence and to playfully remind viewers of their own mortality. In an effort to celebrate the emerging art scene in their hometown of Oakland California, the Perez Brothers have created a short film that simultaneously attempts to exhibit the finest techniques in both film and ceramics.
Recently, the Perez Brothers have summed up The Skulls of Derik Van Beers as a “Morbidly optimistic examination of both life and art.”
