Concrete Architectural Sculptures by David Umemoto

Published Mar 23, 2016

Canadian architect and sculptor David Umemoto creates architectural sculptures that remind us giant concrete monuments in the former Yugoslavia countryside, or “giant brutalist buildings reduced to cubes that can be combined with others to create cities, or surreal places”.

“His artistic approach is highly regulated, codified and rigorous. Each one of his creations seamlessly fits into a conceptual and constructive system that has been thoroughly elaborated. In this system, each work of art is decomposed into modular sections that can then be reorganized and reused to create new works.

Every ‘module’ of all the works can be interconnected physically or conceptually. In this organic process, each work although unique finds itself composed in whole or in part by elements of previous or subsequent works. Thus, the use of techniques for creating ‘multiples’ (such as printmaking, casting or moulding) to create unique pieces is essential to his approach.”
