  • gosh, the feather and box of matches are fantastic!

  • Love the feather and the knife!

  • that switchblade is pretty sweet!

  • Bees and beeswax are the best. Such great vision to sculpt out of it. I like that you are using a less refined wax that still has a great amber cast to it.

    wow, such a pretty color, love the feather!

  • Incredible, from the smallest detail.

  • Oh, I like beeswax. The feather is excellent.

  • They probably smell so earthy! the matches are great

  • Rain

    Those first two are awesome. The texture on the switchblade handle is great. Seems like the ability to create that texture is one of the benefits of wax.

    I can’t believe no one has said it yet but “These are the bee’s knees!”

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.
