Oscar Tuazon
Sculptor Osar Tuazon (b. 1975) makes space for people: tangible space, yes, but also space for reflection, conversation, and progress. Working with a variety of materials, from wood and concrete to glass and steel, he creates sculptures that have a direct relationship with the land as well as its audience. More than aesthetic structures, Tuazon's artwork can often function in a context beyond itself—as a tent, a window pane, or a fireplace—reflecting his perception of sculpture as a model of what’s possible. This series of watercolor paintings are studies for a sculptural solo exhibition at the Hammer Museum in 2016.
