Latest Works

A new series of works are now unveiled in the collection of MUSA (Museo Subacuático de Arte). The recent works by Jason deCaires Taylor bring his contribution to the project up to a total of 510 permanent sculptural works. They also mark for the time being his final addition to the project in Mexico as he relocates his studio back to Europe. The new pieces predominately use live transplanted coral and refracted light to create the narrative of the works and are set out in a linear tour of the Nizuc reef system which can be viewed by a glass sided semi submersible.

Several exciting and ambitious commissions in new locations are in the pipeline for 2014…..details to be announced soon.

Jason deCaires Taylor is an internationally acclaimed eco-sculptor who creates underwater living sculptures, offering viewers mysterious, ephemeral encounters and fleeting glimmers of another world where art and life develop from the effects of nature on the efforts of man. His site-specific, permanent installations are designed to act as artificial reefs, attracting corals, increasing marine biomass and aggregating fish species, while crucially diverting tourists away from fragile natural reefs and thus providing space for natural rejuvenation. Subject to the abstract metamorphosis of the underwater environment, his works symbolize a striking symbiosis between man and nature, balancing messages of hope and loss.

Since 2006 he has created and founded two large scale underwater Museums, one on the island of Grenada in the West Indies, which has subsequently been documented as a “Wonder of the World” by National Geographic and a monumental collection of over 412 pieces in Mexico called MUSA (Museo Subaquático de Arte), now listed by Forbes as one of the world’s most unique travel destinations.

Sean E Avery creates all animal sculptures using recycled materials like old CDs, computer hard drives, and so on. He blends many different man made materials together to make them appear strangely organic, with a distinct sense of movement. The nature of his sculpture practice ensures that each piece will be completely unique. He only uses recycled materials to create all sculptures, which classifies his work as “Sustainable Art”.

Three new sculptures by Jason deCaires Taylor were added to MUSA (Museo Subacuático de Arte) in Mexico.

Time Bomb depicts a collection of bombs and mines designed to support marine life whilst symbolizing the critical future of our reef systems and the countdown of time we have to reverse the increasing worldwide decline. The works also portray the irony of weapons of destruction being used to support and nurture life. The various strata and textures of the constructions are designed to provide habitat space and protected areas for crustaceans and marine species.

Infusing Natural Systems into the Workplace

Domination implies taking over. If we had it our way, natural systems would dominate entirely. Natural systems operate in perfect efficiency. Humans are both part of those natural systems and also somehow separate (by choice). The further we stray from connections with nature, the more alien we become. Tres Birds Workshop was commissioned to concept, design and build an art installation in Downtown Denver for the purpose of encouraging people out of their offices for daily fresh air breaks. We highly recommend it. The installation made up of part vintage office furniture and part 100% live vegetation reminds us not to let office overgrowth affect a healthy relationship with the outdoors. All of the vegetation used in the installation were reused + recycled afterward.

Rhine Mosel Whirlpool was created for the Koblenz garden Festival 2011, and commissioned through the Heike Strellow Gallery, Frankfurt. It sits up on the cliff by the fortress above where the Mosel flows into the Rhine. The Cliff itself is formed from the same stone which we obtained from a local tile and slate works. The presence of slate in the earth gives the local and famous wines a distinctive flavour, the meeting of two rivers gives birth to whirlpools in the water.
