LEADIN:

Artworks made from reclaimed and recycled objects are catching the eye of art fans at the latest Beverly Hills art show.

It’s one of the trends at the spring edition of the event, which takes place twice a year and brings together artists, collectors and curious visitors.

STORYLINE:

Look closely, and these pop art-style portraits of vinyl icons turn out to be made from vinyl itself.

Old records, CDs and VHS tapes found in landfills have been reclaimed and transformed into something you can hang on your wall.

Art made from recycled mixed media is a growing trend at the Beverly Hills artSHOW – the twice yearly gathering where artists from all over the US come to sell their wares.

This year, there are chandeliers and wall art made of recycled cameras, sculptures fashioned out of old wires, cables and string, alongside more conventional kinds of art.

The event brings together up to 250 US artists from various cities and states and organisers say it’s seen 40,000 visitors.

Organiser Karen Fitch McLean says the show is an important fixture on the city’s social calendar.

“This is the City of Beverly Hills largest special event. It takes place along four linear blocks in Beverly Hills. It’s an historic 100 year old park. It’s the oldest monument in the city of Beverly Hills. We attract artists from around the country. We attract visitors from around the world. We promote to our hotels. We promote to the chamber. We have people from every continent in the world coming to the show from every continent in the world,” she says.

The show’s spring theme is “Sublime Perspective: Divinely Deep and Wonderfully Wide Vistas of America”.

There are artworks depicting iconic American views, from palm-lined Beverly Hills streets to vast open landscapes, coastlines and cityscapes.

Mayor of Beverly Hills Julian A. Gold says the art show is a way of bringing the local community together, as well as entertaining visitors.

“Beverly Hills is very committed to public art. It’s actually committed to art and culture in all of its forms but this is an opportunity for us to actually showcase new artists and different emerging kinds of art, and at the same time to have an open kind of place where people can wander around and enjoy our city, enjoy this amazing park space, which we’ve just spent a lot of money to rehab back to its original splendour,” he says.

There are multiple categories of artwork, including metalwork, sculpture, paintings in oil, acrylic and watercolour, drawing and printmaking of all kinds, photography, ceramics, and jewellery.

Alvin Schnupp creates miniature “stage sets” in honour of some of the world’s most famous artists, filling vintage frames with tiny sculptures and objects that portray the artist’s work and life.

“I’m in theatre so I will buy an antique frame and cut it in half and make it look like a proscenium arch. I built a stage house and I hang things just like we do in theatre, so I hang little prints by the artist. I may sculpt the artist, sayings by the artist, so the whole little world is a shrine to one single artist like Klimt or Picasso or Magritte,” he says.

Other artists also use found objects to create unusual works, such as turning a collage of newspaper clippings into an oil painting, or making quirky sculptures out of objects found in the trash.

Ted Gall, an animator turned bronze sculptor, creates art that unfolds to tell a story.

He first makes the sculpture as a wax mould which he uses to cast the finished version in bronze.

“They’re all narratives so I try to tell stories with the pieces. I don’t want to do just an image. And I want a response from the audience so I look for surprise and the pieces are designed to open and each time they open its a new part of the story,” he says.

One of his pieces is a tribute to the movie the Wizard of Oz, which even features a miniature “movie screen” playing the film.
