All at once delicate and nightmarish these painted polymer clay figures by Seoul-based artist Choi Xooang are nothing short of remarkable. Try as I might it’s hard to find a definitive, trustworthy article to source information from, and even the spelling of his name seems to change from site to site. However it seems generally accepted that Xooang is attempting to draw attention to human rights abuses in Korea, and seeing these somewhat macabre, stunted figures unable to see or speak, it’s hard to dispute that. You can see much more of his work at Mu Um and Slash, though be warned it’s somewhat graphic (generally nudity). I admit the mushroom cloud sculpture is a bit of a one-off, but I saw it was just posted yesterday and couldn’t resist. Also, if you like this, you’ll most likely enjoy the work of Emil Alzamora.

I am thrilled to share with you the work of sculptor Michael Beitz who makes some of the most bizarre and humorous sculptures I’ve seen in quite some time by subverting familiar forms of anatomy, nature, and even furniture. Beitz is currently at the John Michael Kohler Art Center Residency in Kohler, Wisconsin and will join artist Larry Bob Phillips in July for a project at Recess Space in New York. He is also planning to have a piece in the Smack Mellon Emerging Artists show in July. On his website, check out his Folding House, a structure erected entirely with a bicycle pedal-powered device.

I’m really enjoying the sculptural works of Brooklyn artist Matthew Day Jackson that confronts ideas of death and mortality. Images are linked to their sources. (via lustik — how do I get in touch with you? can you please shoot me an email?)

Some wonderful paper works by Australian artist Miso (Stanislava Pinchuk) who pastes these large pieces around the streets of Melbourne. Via her web site:

Miso is really taken with the idea of art, and especially street art, as being something which binds us as a community. It functions in a very old fashioned way, in that it becomes a way of telling and sharing stories and images, embedding them within the city. Like folk art, it comes to have a very particular, practical function. It brings us together as makers, viewers and consumers, finding new pieces and exploring the possibilities of our cities.

(via my love for you)
