Milliande Artist Spotlight: Chris Cole Kinetic Art

Milliande Artist Spotlight: Chris Cole Kinetic Art

Chris Coles sculptures and paintings explore the relationship between the natural world and its industrial counterpart .. gleaning inspiration from the visionaries of the industrial revolution and its steampunk re-emergence .. his art is filled with mechanisms that support surreal organisms ...



Christ COLE BIO exerpt
" ..Chris Cole creates moving creatures and surreal images of avian and aquatic life that are inseparable from the industrialized and mechanical world we live in. Smooth plant-like shapes are connected with heavy bolts; tendons, seed-pods, and seaweed seem to be screwed to washers and bearings; fins and wings are animated by bicycle chains and motors, melding nature with the mechanized world.






I love being able to peek at Chris Coles Process too .. lots of images from his sketchbooks disply how his ideas are translated wither into his kinetic sculptures or his paintings and sketches ..






His kinetic sculptures are possible best enjoyed when in motion ... here a video peek, there are many more examples on his website :-)
