William Sweetlove - Cloned RED porcelain lamb
porcellana - Firmato a mano - 100 es. - 2010

William Sweetlove is a contemporary Belgian sculptor and member of the Cracking Art Group, a collective based in Italy. Sweetlove's work combines the cultural commentary of Dadaism with pop art, in a line similar to that of artist Julien Marinetti. Sweetlove creates plastic sculptures or "clones" of animals, painted in different colors, carrying water bottles and wearing rain boots. By decorating the animals, the artist asks viewers to consider a potential future of climate change, without drinking water or coastal cities. William Sweetlove was vorn in 1949 in Ostende, Belgium, he currently resides in Koksijde, Belgium. Since 2001 he is a member of the artist group "The Cracking Art Group" in northern Italy. As the physical medium that provides the basis for his works of art, he uses a type of plastic and polyester, produced through a thermochemical reaction in crude oil. This reaction, known as "cracking" is also the origin of the name of the Cracking art Group. Spread a world view impregnated with elements of irony and ecological awareness. To them, William Sweetlove adds the conviction that art must also be an antidote against excessive consumption and overproduction. His paintings, sculptures and assemblies are his impressions of existence reproduced in materials such as polyester, animal skins and textiles. William Sweetlove thrives on the surface, placing it in sharp contrast with the sententious. Through a series of variations on the same theme, it creates friction between the artificial and the substantial, completely erasing the boundaries between the toy and the work of art in some of his works. This is a world in which poodles, giraffes and penguins become artifacts that unite Dadaism, surrealism and pop art in a common postmodernist synthesis.
