  • I sorta fail to see how these won the Turner prize. anyway, they’re interesting…

    • Space Gandalf

      Tbh, I fail to see why lots of stuff wins the turner prize (see; Martin “the moron” creed). While Abts clearly executes her work very well, I find it all incredibly bland. It looks like corporate art, decoration for the modern environment, and little more besides.

      This kind of soulless bland art really has come to prominence recently, just look at the Tate’s “Painting Now” exhibition (which Abts was included in) or the rise of “zombie formalism”. *Sigh*

    I admired her work when I was in art school, and I had forgotten about her until a few weeks ago; I remembered her work but not her name, and I couldn’t remember it for the life of me. THANKS FOR POSTING THIS!!!

Trippy Anamorphic Sculptures by Artist Jonty Hurwitz

London-based artist Jonty Hurwitz transforms warped digital renderings into incredible anamorphic sculptures made out of bronze, copper, plaster and paint. “Anamorphosis” relates to purposeful distortions that depend on an additional device or precise vantage point to reconstruct the image. In Hurwitz’s case, cylindrical mirrors reveal each sculptures true form. See more below!
