There are some fantastic sequences in this brief stop motion clip by Victor Haegelin of Patator Prod accompanied by music from Professor Kliq. Haegelin relies entirely on bent wire and paper to create everything you see and it’s amazing how fluid all the individual wire strands become when animated like this, wish it went a bit longer.

Artist CW Roelle lives and works in Providence, Rhode Island where he creates dense and detailed illustrations using carefully bent wire. While taking a life drawing course in 1997 Roelle was suddenly overcome with the urge to bend the lines he had already committed to paper. That night, and for many nights after, he began to recreate his line drawings with metal wire. You can see much more of his work over on Facebook, and he has some pieces available at 13FOREST.

As part of the 2012 Festival Arbres en Lumière, an outdoor tree light festival in Geneva, Switzerland, artist Cédric Le Borgne (previously) installed a pair of large birds just off Rue de la Fontaine. Titled Le Désir et la Menace the birds were constructed from wire and lit from below in a style previously seen in his figurative works giving the forms a glowing, weightless appearance. See much more over on his website. (via ruines humaines)

I’m really enjoying the color and form of these tiny bonsai trees sculpted from copper by artist Ken To. While certainly not a new artform (we’ve covered wire trees here previously), I find To’s work exceptional in its simplicity and focus on shape versus ornamentation which other artists in the same vein seem to rely on for visual embellishment. The trees are for sale, however because of recent coverage online it looks like he’s currently sold out on Ebay and Rondei. Stay tuned. (via ian brooks)

Wire Trees by Kevin Iris

September 28, 2012

Christopher Jobson

In his early 20s, Wisconsin artist Kevin Iris became obsessed with growing small bonsai trees and over time he amassed a miniature forest of over 20 trees in his home. One aspect of shaping bonsai trees is learning how to properly “train” the branches to grow in a certain direction. This is often accomplished by using stiff wires wrapped around the branches to slowly guide them in the right direction. At one point Iris had a particularly stubborn tree nearly encased in wire when he suddenly he could make things a lot easier for himself by removing the tree completely. Years later he’s made dozens of wire trees that have appeared in galleries and juried shows, some of which are even available for sale online. (via lost at e minor)

Scribbled Wire Sculptures by David Oliveira

June 9, 2012

Christopher Jobson

Lisbon-born sculptor David Oliveira creates delicate figurative sculptures using wire that’s formed to look like manically drawn ink sketches on top of photographs. Some pieces are even hung by invisible filament creating the illusion of hovering in place. See much more of his work on his website and Facebook. If you like these also check out the work of Gavin Worth. (via my modern met)

Ephemeral Portraits Cut from Layers of Wire Mesh by Seung Mo Park

April 16, 2012

Christopher Jobson

Using a process that could be the new definition of meticulous, Korean sculptor Seung Mo Park creates giant ephemeral portraits by cutting layer after layer of wire mesh. Each work begins with a photograph which is superimposed over layers of wire with a projector, then using a subtractive technique Park slowly snips away areas of mesh. Each piece is several inches thick as each plane that forms the final image is spaced a few finger widths apart, giving the portraits a certain depth and dimensionality that’s hard to convey in a photograph, but this video on YouTube shows it pretty well. Park just exhibited this month at Blank Space Gallery in New York as part of his latest series Maya (meaning “illusion” in Sanskrit). (via lavinia tribiani)
