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.

Kyle Bean, Stick Insects

January 24, 2011

Brighton-based designer Kyle Bean has been busier than us and he updated his portfolio to prove it with a slew of really fun work including these meticulously constructed matchstick insects (photos by Owen Silverwood). I also really enjoyed the window displays he did for Selfridges. Previously. (via notcot)

Match installations are hot! Really beautiful work by Paris-based artist Claire Fontaine at Helena Papadopoulos in Athens, on display now through January 15, 2011. The last image is from a 2004 show at the Front Room. See also the work of Chicago artist Pei-San Ng. (via contemporary art daily)

Match Sculptures by Pei-San Ng

Beautiful matchstick sculptures by Chicago artist Pei-San Ng.

I am intrigued and mesmerized by the in-between state and by the fragility of the burned matches. The in-between is where the excitement happens, the point where the red heads turns to white before turning to ash, it’s the tipping point.
