  • saw some of this stuff at art basel last december. it looked even better in person!

  • Laurelin

    oh wow, these really really remind my of Shinique Smith’s clothing sculptures

    • Just Ice

      that’s because shinique ripped them off with the help from her friends in miami

  • taylor

    WOW!
    The second one reminds me of when kids hide in the clothing racks at malls…
    I always got in trouble for doing that

    • breakfast in europe

      ha so true, my mom would get so pissed when my brother and i did that.

  • lapetitefaon

    I love this!

  • Michelene Teich

    Laurelin, perhaps you need to do some research.
    guerra de la paz were producing their work while shinique was still in school.
    each does their own thing. no comparison.

  • Nice. First looks like big jelly :)

Sculptures by Jaime Pitarch Strip Everyday Objects of Their Functionality

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