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)

A number of wonderful anatomical pieces by Montreal-based architect Federico Carbajal who uses galvanized wire, stainless steel and acrylic to make these pieces he refers to as “spatial sketches”. Beautiful work. (via street anatomy)

Wire Sculptures by Barbara Licha

October 18, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Polish-born artist Barbara Licha now lives and works in Sydney, Australia. Though she also works in paint and other forms of mixed media, her tangled wire sculptures of figures in various poses and states of suspension really caught my eye. Via her website:

Polish born artist Barbara Licha’s recent sculptures explore the physical and emotional space of our contemporary urban environment. Here is a world where human emotion meets the exaggeration of our imaginations, the human condition magnified by dreams that linger and our memory of the past.

See much more of her sculptural work here. (via collabcubed)

Wire Sculptures by Gavin Worth

September 23, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Artist Gavin Worth has followed a road less traveled (or perhaps, more traveled). He was born in Zimbabwe in 1981, grew up in Las Cruces, New Mexico and then lived for nearly a decade in San Francisco where he found work as an actor and musician before leaving for Cairo, Egypt to teach at the American International School. He never attended art school, and in his spare time has nurtured a lifelong obsession with drawing, painting, and sculpture. Via his website:

By bending black wire into something of freestanding line drawings, I create sculptures that engage the viewer by involving them in their subtle changes. When the light in the room shifts, so does the mood of the piece. A breeze might softly move an arm. My wire sculptures tell stories of simple human moments: a woman adjusting her hair, a face gazing from behind tightly wrapped arms, a mother gently cradling her baby. The honest, unguarded moments are the ones that I find to be the most beautiful.

These are essentially line drawings done with wire and are amazingly perfect. (via my modern met)

Steel Wire Sculptures by Tomohiro Inaba

July 12, 2011

(click images for detail)

These wire sculptures by Tomohiro Inaba appear to be the 3D manifestation of an illustrator gone mad. Each sculpture appears to start off anatomically perfect, a delicate fawn nibbling in the grass or a sinister black skull resting on its chin, but each devolves into an impossibly complex tangle of steel wire that twists vertically into the sky like violent pencil scribbles. Definitely check out his website for an archive of work spanning back to 2003. (via ex-chamber)
