Original Signed Artworks & Limited Edition Prints For Sale

Theaster Gates is an installation artist whose works often centre around social and racial themes, with an aim of highlighting cultural differences and improving underprivileged neighbourhoods through a combination of urban planning and the different mediums of art – he founded the Rebuild Foundation, with some of its most famous works including the restoration of various vacant buildings, and resulting transformations into cultural installations.
 
« Sometimes the creating that we do is creating a platform that allows other creative people to pitch in. »
Theaster Gates
Gates’ initial foray into art was through the medium of pottery – a skill that he studied for some time in Japan. His installations are often thought-provoking and layered with meaning;
 
« There were a series of moments when I decided that art was important, and it was an important vehicle for me to express my interest in spaces. »
Theaster Gates



one of his most famous pieces, included in his ‘The Minor Arts’ collection, featured him taking an axe to one of his paintings – the final outcome was a glossy black canvas featuring a gaping hole in its centre, something that Gates has stated was a message regarding the lack of education funding and subsequent closing of various black and poor schools. (Artist website) Read More

What is site specific art?

What is site specific art?

Artwork that's created to exist in a given/certain place. Location is taken into account by the artist as he plans and creates his artwork. Robert Irwin reined and promoted it in California. Site Specific Art came after modernist objects as artist's reaction to the world's situation. Modernists objects were nomadic, transportable, only existed in museum space and were for commodification and market.
