Samuel de Gunzburg

City & Guilds of London Art School      

My recent series of work focuses on historical vases and their present status as ancient patrimonial gems of evidence and information, and by extension, metaphorical symbols of art history. This pushed my practice to take a direction, which would evidence my interests in ruins; an element that simultaneously informs about time while simultaneously resisting its longevity. The three-dimensional work is an attempt to emulate that feeling of the ruin, the deteriorated, and the damaged, with materials that would evidence their ‘staged’ truth.
