Edgar Orlaineta

Edgar Orlaineta’s work focuses on the minutiae of everyday life, employing objects and ideas and transforming them into sculptural forms. Depicting from modernist design, architecture, historical and cultural symbolism combining parts into hybrid forms where modernist ideals and cultural perspective collide. Orlaineta’s investigations into modernist ideals praises both subject and form in modern art and design as well as the contradictory ideologies that are forced upon the work due a certain legacy within a larger historical/cultural context. Ultimately Edgar tries to direct our attention to the transformative powers of the everyday and its relentless aspiration for a utopian way of life. Rachel Gugelberger.
