    I refuse to believe that these are paintings.

    as much as i absolutely love these i really wish that they were just huge so that i could be completely immersed in them. but fantastic nonethe less it reminds me alot of the bacon cube by cindy wright

  • I certainly admire the amazing skill and craftsmanship, but I never understand why to paint what camera can do it!!

    • dear saya – may I ask you – did you ever tried to understand ?

    • lapetitefaon

      I’m not convinced even a camera could capture the light and the details in this manner, these are brilliant!

      • ooof

        considering the blur of the stones as they recede into space, i’m pretty sure that these are painted from photographs, so, if anything, the paintings have lost information in their translation from photo to painting.

        I think Saya’s point is that this focus seems to be on “i can’t believe the amount of work that went into the creation of these” rather than “i feel an incredible connection with these.”

  • Your style is unorthodox, but effective

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.
