Brazilian sculptor Saint Clair Cemin has returned to Paul Kasmin for his third solo show at the gallery. Myth and Math finds a familiarity with Cemin’s minimalist approach while also delivering something new and unexpected. Check out the piece below:

St Clair Cemin Octopus Sculpture

What a cool idea to set this bronze “Octopus” sculpture section against mirrored surfaces, where the fractional piece (1/8th of the imagined whole) can be made to look complete and 3-D with assistance from the reflections. Just genius.

Regarding the above piece, Love and Mathematics, Cemin explicitly combines the emotional and the rational, two seemingly contrasting concepts which he is able to jointly explore with his chosen artistic medium.

Athina

This one, Athina (2014) reminds me very much of an Umberto Boccione sculpture I saw at MOMA over the summer.

I don’t know why these sculptures remind me of expensive new foreign sports cars, but I think that should be considered a good thing.

Saint Clair Cemin’s Myth and Math will be on Exhibit Through December 23rd, 2014 at Paul Kasmin Gallery, Located at 293 Tenth Avenue (Corner of 27th Street), in the Chelsea Gallery District.

Cemin’s sculptures are initially created to be viewed and enjoyed in an outdoor environment. Each one is very beautiful and has unique properties.

The sculpture above especially has a gorgeous iridescence that probably looks amazing in the sun.
