Watch Part Sculptures by Natsumi Honda

February 9, 2012

Christopher Jobson

These two magnificent little animal sculptures titled Time to be Included were welded together using hundreds of tiny used watch parts. According to Tokyobling’s Blog the works are by Japanese sculptor Natsumi Honda from Tama Art University, but there seems to be very little additional info about the artist online.

February 6, 2012

Christopher Jobson

I’m genuinely enjoying these assorted organic paper sculptures by Swiss artist Valérie Buess who lives and works in Germany. For the better part of 20 years she’s been working with various forms of paper in both two and three dimensional artworks. See much more on her website. (thnx, meret!)

My Light is Your Life is a figurative sculpture by Czech artist Krištof Kintera made from an assortment of old lamps, light fixtures, and cables. I also like his Lay Down and Shine piece.

Figurative Sculptures Embedded in Gallery Walls by Matteo Pugliese

January 30, 2012

Christopher Jobson

These are just a few of many wonderful pieces by Italian sculptor Matteo Pugliese who lives and works in Milan. His bronze sculptures of men, often made from multiple components, appear to be trapped in the vertical space of gallery walls. My Star Wars-addled brain is reminded of Hans Solo encased in carbonite, though I find these aesthetically much more pleasing.

The Miniature LEGO Realism of Bruce Lowell

January 27, 2012

Christopher Jobson

I am in awe of these fantastic LEGO sculptures by Bruce Lowell, who frequently models his miniature creations off actual household objects and foods. From a killer KitchenAid Tilt-Head Stand Mixer to simple paint roller everything you see is tiny LEGO bricks. I can’t imagine the amount of time it takes to determine if the needed pieces even exist, let alone putting them all together. Too much fun.

Dissolving Figurative Sculptures by Unmask

January 25, 2012

Christopher Jobson

These figurative human and equine sculptures are by a trio of Beijing-based artists who go by the name Unmask Group. Liu Zhan, Kuang Jun and Tan Tianwei met while at the Central Academy of Fine Arts and have been producing sculptural work together since 2001. These seemingly incomplete stainless steel works show figures in a state of dissolution or perhaps just the opposite, emergence. Regardless, the delicate lines and smooth curves left by the absence of materials make them appear almost sensual. These particular pieces were on display at H.T. Gallery through last month.
