  • charming/crazy/wonderful

  • Love the disco wolf!

  • with six legs. i’ve seen this one in person!

  • Strange & wonderful. The Wolf wins.

  • I love the fantasy theme of these pieces and the diversity in work. The attention to detail shines through each piece and I almost see a story that links all the pieces together. I like the use of light to enhance the artworks and how their is an additional element on the wall that almost looks like the source point of where the main pieces came from or the forming of another. The wolf image is probably my favourite because you get sucked into this world that the light shapes help create.

    amazing , i love the top one

  • lapetitefaon

    in an ideal world I would have the wolf in my living room

  • The last photo is amazing. I’m not so sure what it is exactly…but I can see some features that make it easier to see.

  • Joe

    The picture of the wolf is remarkable!

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.
