U.K. artist Michelle Mckinney examines the contrast of manmade materials with forms of nature in her ethereal installations of leaves, seeds, and butterflies formed from handcut woven metal. The artist cuts each shape from copper, brass, or steel mesh which is then colored and assembled into the forms seen here. You can see more of her work over on Facebook and in her portfolio.

Sculptor Manuel Martí Moreno lives and works in Valencia, Spain and forms these wonderful figurative pieces out of iron nuts. Via email Moreno says that he is most interested in showing the passage of time, the transience of life, and our collective awareness of our own mortality, seemingly evidenced by the spectre of decay at the edges of his works. You can see more images including installation shots on his blog, and also here. If you liked this, also check out the sculptures of Park Chan-Girl. Thanks Manuel for sharing your work with Colossal!

New to me, this great sculpture by Tom Frantzen in Brussels, Belgium. The piece was actually completed in 1985 outside the Communauté Française building and depicts a young man emerging from the sewer to grab the leg of a police officer.

Frank Plant is a Barcelona-based American sculptor who works primarily with welded steal, making large-scale wall-mounted sculptures that look like delicate line drawings. Via his website:

My work is about physical and social observations. I think of things in terms of compositions whether that be an object, a line of text or a social situation. It’s important to me that the work be open and accessible. I look equally for harmony and discordance and find them similarly revealing and fascinating.

He has an extensive portfolio of work available here and you can also follow him on Flickr and via his blog.

Artist Stephen Fitz-Gerald uses scavenged scrap metal to create these wonderful figurative sculptures. Starting with molds taken from live models he welds together industrial steel punch parts, fencing swords, and laser-cut steel scrap into these beautiful pieces that can weigh up to 100 pounds. See much more of his work here. Thanks Stephen for sharing your work with Colossal!

As if loose pages from an old Disney script were accidentally left on the set of Terminator 3, these children’s book and cartoon characters including Whinnie the Pooh, Piglet, Daffy Duck and others have clearly armed themselves for the looming fairytale apocalypse. These welded stainless steel plate sculptures are by Korean artist So Hyun Woo, many of which are from his July exhibition at Song Eun Art Space aptly titled Cruel Fairy Tales 3. My hunch is that among regular readers of Colossal, for all the people who find these unbelievably wrong or plain weird, there will be an equal sized group who finds them juuuuust right.

A number of striking sculptures from the first solo exhibition of Korean artist Jang Yong Sun entitled Particles of Dark Matter. Sun welds thousands of steel rings to form these amoeba-like structures that despite having the appearance of being precariously fragile must be extremely heavy. If you like these, you might also enjoy the work of Mike Castator. (via 준다메다 and art company gig)
