Engaging different methods of construction, Oscar Tuazon frequently uses wood, concrete, glass, steel, and piping as materials to create his structures and installations. His works have roots in minimalism, conceptualism, and architecture, and have a direct relationship with both the site in which they are presented, as well as with their viewer, often through physical engagement.
Oscar Tuazon (b. 1975, Seattle) lives and works in Los Angeles. The artist is currently the subject of a solo show at the Aspen Art Museum: Oscar Tuazon: Fire Worship. Other recent solo shows include Oscar Tuazon: Collaborator at Bellevue Arts Museum and Oscar Tuazon: Water School at MSU Broad Museum earlier this year; a large-scale installation Une colonne d’eau in the Place Vendôme, Paris in 2017, Oscar Tuazon: Hammer Projects, at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles in 2016 and Studio, at Le Consortium, Dijon, France in 2015. His work was also included in the recent Chicago Architecture Biennial.
