  • quite a variety of styles here, i think the less photo-realistic ones are the most intersting. would love to see more in the style of the first image.

  • lapetitefaon

    alright, these are ridiculous. I love the girls face in two and four, so beautiful.

  • Cindy

    Wow, the last two are absolutely stunning.

  • Miss L

    Wow, I agree with Jeff, the first one is probably the most powerful one because of the subject which fits the style perfectly! The subject is a bit spooky actually.. but reaaaaaly nice…

  • Kyle

    These are really eerie, almost twisted.. but I can’t stop looking at the first one.

  • christina

    Is the first one supposed to be Kate Lanphear??

  • Yeah, I think the less photorealistic ones are a lot more interesting too.

  • I can’t get over the first painting. The statue is such an awesome juxtaposition. And the baby = perfect accessory.

  • rickster

    gives me boners

Sculptures by Jaime Pitarch Strip Everyday Objects of Their Functionality

Subject, Object, Abject (2006) – Chair, wooden shavings from chair legs

 

I’m obsessed with these sculptures by artist Jaime Pitarch that I came across on the Spencer Brownstone Gallery website. The Barcelona-based artist explores our relationship to household objects by making subtle and not-so-subtle alterations rendering them completely useless. He says the works have “to do with the human being’s inability to identify with the structures he himself has created”.

Have a look at more images below.
