Robin Wright Sculptural Fairies Take Feminine Flight, Seducing Our Imaginations With Wire Heartstrings

As common as fairies may seem to us, their actual pedigree is not completely understood. Angels began in the Old Testament as anonymous messengers of God before evolving into immortal residents of the heavenly realm.

By contrast, fairies are often associated with pagan myths or religions and exist as anthropomorphic creatures in the world of humans, although most probably living in a somewhat different dimension.

Historically, fairies were considered to be suspicious creatures, mischievous and sometimes evil. It’s easy to see fairies as malevolent and part of culture’s larger historical plan to eliminate the positive influence of nature’s original goddesses.

Today’s fairies enchant us — especially when they are the work of UK sculptor Robin Wright, who creates magnificent stainless steel wire-winged fairies with a penchant for dancing in the wind.

Fairies can be tall, elegant and more beautiful than a ballet dancer in flight. They are typically dazzling — and yes feminine — winged and often waving a magic wand.

Wright’s creatures delight in their human-like forms complete with muscles, limbs, and skin. Inside each fairy lies a heart of stone, sometimes personalized with a message. Dandelion flowers dead and ready to spin their spores into the wind make high-drama divas of his artistry.

The Staffordshire resident found himself inspired by a photo he took in the woods one day, an image that captured a small, mysterious, enigmatic, fairy-like shape. Clearly, his muse took flight in the artist’s imagination, leaping in multiple forms of stainless steel magnificence from his mind and body.

You can see many of Wright’s pieces on display at The Trentham Estate Gardens in England. (Fairies). in almost limitless variations.

Rene Detrixhe's 'Heirloom' Tablecloth Honors Nature's Delicate Bounty

Artist and artisan Rena Detrixhe has collected thousands of seeds in Lawrence, Kansas, stitching them into delicate, sophisticated gossamer-like tablecloths. In her project titled ‘Heimloom’ the seeds form gentle star, flower and pinwheel patterns so delicate that the seeds appear airborne.

Describing herself as a ‘hunter and gatherer of materials’, Rene views nature as the finest of artistic creators, showcasing a bounty for the artist’s personal creativity and exploration of humans’ relationship with her. A quote from Lucy Lippard describes this synergy of reverence and respect.

Art must have begun as nature — not as imitation of nature, nor as formalized representation of it, but simply as the perception of relationships between humans and the natural world.

Detrixhe’s motivation behind this particular project stems from a desire to dialogue about the intersection of art and the environment. “The table and cloth were created to exist as a stage or platform,” the artist says on her website. “As part of its exhibition, individuals were invited to participate in a round-table discussion including environmentalists, ecologists, biologists, artists, and other researchers.”

Moshe Safdie's Singapore 'Jewel Changi Airport' Redefines Airport Architecture

Moshe Safdie’s (see website) lush, sensory, expansive imaginative greenhouse space is not a proposal. Construction has begun on the nature preserve, known as ‘Jewel Changi Airport’, measuring over 1.4 million square feet. The centerpiece of the design is a spout pouring forth a 131-foot-tall waterfall called the ‘Rain Vortex’. The water is recycled for use throughout the building and is a lit cascade at night.

With this design, Israeli-born Moshe Safdie seeks to reinvent the modern airport as having a relationship with nature and not representing a symbol of modernity that is alien to a natural environment.
