        Video depicting John Bizas retrospective exhibition. Giannis Bizas was born in Chios island of Greece in 1980. Since his young age he demonstrated great interest in the Fine Arts and soon after got involved with sketching and sculpting. His material of choice is marble, which he work with in a characteristic manner. His passion fo marble sculpture has driven him away from Greece and into Italy in 2008, where he still works and lives. Initially he resided in Florence for seminars in art and then in Carrara, where he got a degree in Fine Arts from the local academy - part of the University of Pisa. Thenceforward he has been distinguished for the originality of his work in selected international symposia and exhibitions worldwide. Associated with the Greek Marble Initiative since the kick off of the international platform to support his country, he never forgets his homeland, in which refers to any promotion opportunities in the international media. His works can be found in private collections and public Institutes around the world, while his name is not missing by international editions of lists & catalogues in recent years, stating him as one of the most strongly emerging sculptors of contemporary art.

            • Franz Xaver Ölzant - Idea, Process, Form

              Undeniably, there is something sensual and organic to his works. They appear like living, changing bodies we can interact and connect with. They are dynamic, powerful and constructive forms in which geometrical rigour is abandoned in favour of organic forms emanating from the material itself - and from the vital force introduced by the artist’s creativity. By means of this virtual exuberance of materiality, the artist tries to unravel the mysteries of the origins in order to fathom the laws that rule life. Contrary to our ancestors, we live in an environment created by ourselves, increasingly far removed from the natural world. Nature’s complexity escapes us and a sense of any natural order seems far away for a city dweller of nowadays. Nature has been replaced with the overflow of artificial images emitted by our media. Today’s imagery exhausts any possible connection between nature and the reality produced by humanity. In this unsettling scenario and the artificial chaos surrounding us, we find our only comfort in the truthfulness of art, in the expressivity that permits reconciliation with what is only seemingly under our control, and precedes us in time and space: with nature. Franz Xaver Oelzant’s creative endeavour to disentangle the mysteries of natural forms and of the material stone is in fact an effort to restore its rights to nature, in this era of visual and virtual chaos. In these objects we can observe a keen interest in the creation and development of forms that are always in close connection with the material and the space into which these objects are inscribed. Oelzant’s perception of everything that surrounds us is not an abstract archetype; it would be pointless to explain it with theoretical evocations, it is rather something tangible and concrete, like any element of nature that can be perceived empirically. As if with a scalpel, it seems that Oelzant dissects the interior of a structure in order to analyze its secret dimensions. He demonstrates the internal logic of the form, of the volume and of the angles that permit completing the shape. Exploring the inner structure, he begins to manipulate and dismantle it like a child would do. As physical as they are, upon closer inspection his sculptures nevertheless stir manifold emotions in the viewer. In today’s deluge if images, where one image is the clone of another, we ask ourselves where these natural beings and shapes with their primitive appearance come from. They are all but passive in their silent presence. It is the artist’s intention to provide us with experiences that point to a pre-technological era, evoking a time where architecture and sculpture was one: prehistory. It is a time when two-dimensional images were rare and the presence of solid objects lent credibility to rationally unexplainable perceptions. Hence Oelzant’s great respect for the intrinsic qualities of the material: density, hardness, elasticity, texture, brightness, weight…in their demonstrative materiality these objects represent the perceptible manifestation of matter. Oelzant’s sculptures have the character of a proof, indication or an appearance of nature’s characteristics; his descriptive shapes disclose structures bearing witness to the infinite complexity of the natural world. During long periods of the twentieth century, art tried to reconcile two extremes: culture and nature. It applies to Franz Xaver Oelzant what Jackson Pollock once said when someone advised him to work more after nature: “I am nature” (written by Cem Angeli) A CastYourArt artist-portrait | KA21, www.CastYourArt.com

                Die Werke Ölzants besitzen etwas unleugbar Sinnliches, Organisches. Sie muten wie lebende, sich verändernde Körper an, mit denen wir interagieren und Verbindungen knüpfen. Es handelt sich um dynamische, kraftvolle und konstruktive Formen, in denen die geometrische Strenge zugunsten des Organischen aufgegeben wird, das aus dem Kern der Materie selbst hervorkommt - und aus der Vitalkraft, die der formende Gestus einbringt. Anhand dieses regelrechten Überschwangs der Materialität versucht der Bildhauer, das Rätsel des Ursprungs zu entwirren und die Gesetze zu verstehen, die das Leben beherrschen. Im Unterschied zu unseren Vorfahren leben wir in einer von uns selbst hergestellten Umgebung, der Natur immer mehr entrückt. Die Komplexität der Natur entgeht uns und der Sinn einer naturhaften Ordnung erscheint einem Stadtbewohner weit entfernt. Die Natur wurde durch die Überflutung mit Bildern ersetzt, die uns von den Medien ausgestoßen werden. Die heutige Bilderkultur erschöpft sofort jegliche Verbindung, die zwischen Natur und menschgeschaffener Realität hervorgehen könnte. Diese Zustand beunruhigt, und vor dem künstlichen Chaos, das uns umgibt, finden wir den einzigen Trost in der Wahrhaftigkeit der Kunst, in der Ausdruckskraft, die uns die Versöhnung mit jenem ermöglicht, das nur scheinbar unter unserer Kontrolle ist und das uns in Zeit und Raum vorausgeht: Mit der Natur. Das schöpferische Bemühen Ölzants, die Mysterien der Naturformen und des Steines zu entwirren, ist das Bemühen, in dieser Zeit des visuellen und virtuellen Chaos der Natur ihre Rechte zurückzuerstatten. Wir sehen in den Objekten ein extremes Interesse an der Form, deren Entstehung und Entwicklung in enger Bindung mit dem Material und in intimer Beziehung mit dem Raum steht, in dem sie eingeschrieben ist.

                    I managed to capture the essence and the hard work behind one of the oldest ways of expression. The dream is materialized for eternity in metal and the matter inherits cosmic dimensions. This is how the artist George Pavel meditates and dreams about beauty, contrasts and elegance. His craftsmanship speaks for itself. He loads his sculptures with energy, tension and vitality. They begin to speak, their message comes from the universe. www.george-pavel.de Director / Producer - Alex Lungu Director of Photography - André Sasse Second Camera and Lights - Kai Rump Edit and Sound - Mario Canu Research / Translation - Alexandra Penciu
