  • Joe

    Nice, perfect length and execution. I was worried this was going to just be mean/negative but it was just refreshingly methodical.

    • fiorella gallia

      Right, he was no type nazi.

    • ya nice balance of type he liked and disliked

  • fiorella gallia

    Loved it. He’s got an acute eye and sense of humor.

  • kostia

    Wonderful. I was delighted and a little relieved at the things he liked.

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”.

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!
