Tel Aviv Museum of Art

On our last day in Israel we had a tour of the newly opened Herta and Paul Amir Building at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. It was designed by architecture firm Preston Scott Cohen, and it is astonishing.

We were given our tour while the gallery was closed (star treatment!) so there were a few people cleaning and I thought it was hilarious that this one guy rested his broom right on the sculpture! (I hope this doesn’t get him in any trouble, he was doing a great job!)

Anyways, the Tel Aviv Museum of Art is a must-see if you ever get the chance to go to Israel!

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”.

Artist Spotlight: Fantasaraxia

A selection of work by my friend Boldtron, currently creating magnificent stuff in Cinema 4D under the name Fantasaraxia. Also a shoutout to Arnau, who first shared these works over on Artnau (my favourite site for visual inspiration). If you ever visit Barcelona hit these guys up, I had the best time there with them!

Have a look at more images of Boldtron’s work below!
