Wow. Just wow. I haven’t encountered a piece of sculpture so beautiful in quite some time. Expansion is a recent work by sculptor Paige Bradley. (via eat like a whale, curse like a sailor)

I don’t normally post two things from an artist in one day; however this seemed too good to pass up, especially due to this blog’s affinity for matches. Ryo Shimizu created this delicate human shell out of hundreds of matches entitled Matchstick Drawing. How macabrely awesome it would have been to watch this figure meet his flaming demise.

At its core the basic premise of this photo series by Italian photographer and designer Francesco Brunotti isn’t something tremendously new, that is the digital removal of objects from images, for instance Seats by Jens Sage. But in its art direction and execution something wonderful emerges and I found myself smiling hugely. See his first series, and the second.

Designer Marco Ugolini demonstrates the proper way to hold a poster within a poster within a poster etc. Via his web site:

Contribution for the exhibition Connected Project in Breda, the Netherlands, 2010. Here, I make a statement on the relation between the graphic designers and the poster as a media. This is a poster of me holding a poster of me holding a poster of me holding a poster, and so on.

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.
