Going Back to the Roots with Henrique Oliveira’s Transarquitetônica

To see more photos and videos from Transarquitetônica, explore the MAC USP location page and browse the #henriqueoliveira hashtag.

Brazilian artist Henrique Oliveira invites spectators to step inside his latest artwork and explore a giant wooden maze at São Paulo Museum MAC. His largest installation to date, Transarquitetônica is a 70 meter (229.66 ft) interactive sculpture made of tapumes, a plywood material traditionally used for cheap housing in Brazil. As the piece’s name suggests, Oliveira’s work speaks to the concept of time and evolution. Spectators discover spaces of contrast, as certain areas reference today’s modern architecture while sprawling branches symbolize man’s first dwelling.

I got to see some of Henrique’s work at the Brisbane GOMA’s ‘Sculpture is Everything’ Exhibition in 2012, the work depicted, "Xilonoma Chamusquius 2" - a cancerous like growth in a wall made in a similar fashion to these works - was amazing to look at and touch, quite thought provoking and well constructed. Possibly one of my favourite pieces at the exhibition.
Would love to see this one.

A friend asked me for an Assassin’s Creed inspired pendant based on the belt design of Ezio Auditore da Firenze from AC2.The pendant is made using the lost wax casting technique in Argentium Sterling Silver with a faceted garnet gemstone embellishment. The back has two rings for hanging and the piece is a solid 20+ grams of silver. :)

This one features an amethyst crystal caged in silver.

These are a set of one-of-a-kind rings made last year and exhibited here in QLD. I’ll be posting the rest of the series soon.

My first bezel setting!
Couldn’t have done it without the amazingly hard working and talented (and infinitely patient) Rhyperographer! *hugs*
