Three Studio Slices And Dices

Interesting sculptures and paintings by Three Studio of sliced and diced acrylic figures. It’s kind of like a kids version of Damein Hirst’s The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living.

A Laser Cut Plane Crash By Mezzapelle And Deriu

There is something especially frightening about Lara Mezzapelle and Giacomo Deriu‘s sculpture, Dirittura d’Arrivo.  The sculpture freezes the moment a plane rips in half, about to plunge from the sky.  All of the ensuing chaos – panicking passengers, flying luggage, mangled metal – is caught completely and eerily in white.  A fear of flying has been a common modern phobia.  However, as critic Olivia Spatola points out, a plane crash in a post 9/11 world reflects the more modern fear of a new kind of violence.  In a way Mezzapelle and Deriu capture this modern fear in their medium and process.  The sculpture is planned using 3D modeling software, and cut from nylon using prototyping lasers.

Mira Thomsen

Heliumkristall

Mira Thomsen’s collages look quite natural from afar, nothing too crazy about crystalline structures and topiaries, right? WRONG. I like that the oddness of her images doesn’t jump off the page and try to strangle you, it just sort of sits back in its chaise, takes a sip of its mint julep, and says “That’s right, I’m looking at you.” It’s the subtlety that makes it all the more intriguing.

If you like funny looking faces, then you’re gonna love what P.Williams has going on. A little bit of Crumb mixed with some Barry McGee, throw in some Spongebob Squarepants and we’re starting to get a little bit closer. Great selective use of color and text too, it looks like this guy fills up an entire sketchbook every week!

3D Digital Creatures Designed To Repulse And Intrigue

The Six and Five studio - Sculpture 4 The Six and Five studio - Sculpture 1 The Six and Five studio - Sculpture 5 The Six and Five studio - Sculpture 1=2

Colorful, textured creatures imagined by designers Andy Reisinger and Ezequiel Pini from The Six and Five Studio. The series called “Morbo” is a rendering of 3D printing and digital coloring. The result is bluffing. Easily mistaken for real existing sculptures or hyperrealistic paintings, the designers have had to explain themselves a lot about the disturbing aspect of their work.

Pushing the limits of art and design, the Argentinian duo Andy Reisinger and Ezequiel Pini like to explore the three dimensional world. Stranded on the beach after an apocalyptic episode, the creatures are found as they are presented to us. Raw, shapeless and twisted by the centrifugal force of nature, they mix elements which has nothing to do with each other. Hair, coral, gelatinous paste, plastic, porcelain and more are harmonized in objects that, in the end, make sense to the eye.

At first glance, the creatures seem ugly. Part of it is due to the fact that we can envision a living hairy animal coming out of it. Once the process of creation is understood, the look on it changes. The designers are interested in that shift. From unpleasant to attractive, our curiosity grows as we discover that these fantasy ‘things’ do not really exist. Leaving us wondering if beauty is better off restrained within our minds instead of being exposed out there. (via booooooom)

Pierre Bolide

Bolide4

From what I can tell, Pierre Bolide likes a few things: Space. Raging vein mutant muscles. And imaginary feuds with Chuck Norris. The only way I can describe these are like fan club illustrations of a long lost Nintendo video game that totally ruled and I played so much I saw the shapes on the back of my eyelids when I went to sleep at night, or some totally awesome TMNT (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) spin-off series based on one of  Shredder’s obscure, but totally awesome minions. Found on B/D’s very own Creative Pic Pool!
