Nice feature by Great Big Story following kinetic sculptor Anthony Howe around his home-studio on Orcas Island where he lives and works with his wife/business partner. Howe’s massive sculptures have a mesmerizing, almost other-worldly quality. Check out more images below and see his pieces in action in over at Booooooom TV!
Artist Heather Dewey-Hagborg creates “Stranger Visions” from stuff we discard publicly without a second thought. Gleaning genetic information from things like chewing gum and cigarette butts, Dewey-Hagborg creates detailed masks of what the person might look like, raising questions about privacy and the implications of genetic tampering. See more images and a short video of Dewey-Hagborg discussing her project below.
Japanese Artist Yuichi Ikehata’s works are a clever combination of digital and physical. Photos of sculptures made of wire, clay, and paper are subtly merged with images of the artist’s own body painted white. The viewer is left to question what’s real. See more of Ikehata’s work below.
Fun ceramic sculpture series by Japanese artist Toshiya Masuda offers pixelated versions of everyday objects like running shoes and disposable Starbucks cups. More images below!
Canadian artist Trevor Wheatley and collaborator Cosmo Dean install large-scale graphic sculptures that touch on modern slang words and phrases, placing them in various outdoor locations (some more accessible than others). See more surreal images by Jake Sherman below!
Series of hand-carved wood sculptures by Perth-based artist Paul Kaptein, currently on display at Krause Gallery in New York until January 26. Kaptein’s glitched out figures are something you’ll want to check out in person as the degree of distortion shifts depending on what angle you’re looking (sometimes appearing completely normal). More images below.
Beautiful sculptures by British artist Jonathan Callan, who uses books and paper as the primary medium for his forms. Love the way the cross sections of the pages look like paint strokes. More images below.
