I usually try to feature lesser known artists but I love Tom Sachs’ work too much not to post. These sculptures just become more and more relevant as time goes on.

    Glamorous satires. Wonder if the pieces were intended to be parodies of the companies’ styles themselves–

    Tiffany & Co. is just a “pretty little box” filled with pretty little pieces of metal.
    The Chanel pieces lend to a metallic, mechanic form of feminine brutality, relating to Chanel’s timeless yet innovative (chains and bows, etc) tendencies.
    Prada toilet…maybe this guy just doesn’t dig Prada.
    I really liked the Hermès one. It’s the most upfront commentary on consumerism related to designer brands.

    a toilet, a chainsaw, and fast food, man this guy deserves a frickin medal, somebody get this guy a bar of gold, maybe he can use it as a reference to sculpt a cardboard replica

    This Guillotine picture is the one they are using as a propaganda photo, saying the US Government purchased 30,000 of them to kill Americans!
