Chad Wys’ Shuffles and Manipulated Familiar Forms in His Multi-Disciplinary Works

Illinois-based artist Chad Wys does a lot of different things. He’s worked with collage, sculpture, textiles, aerosol, digital media, and more. A lot of his w0rk manipulates and completely shuffles the tone of established, familiar forms. Strategically removing aspects of canonical portraiture, painting a kitschy duck sculpture in pastels, and stenciling text elements onto benign porcelain and china are a few methods he’s employed to mess with our brains. But this type of art isn’t produced in a malicious way. It’s just the artist’s way of getting us to see things the way he sees them for once. (via)

Chad Wys’s Readymades

Illinois-born artist Chad Wys‘s latest series Readymades ’11 consists of mixed media pieces that deconstruct found objects – such as frames, china and porcelain - by distorting and adding paint. The playfulness of the work completely reinvents the objects to make the familiar completely unfamiliar whilst adding new layers to bric-a-brac found around the home. More after the jump.
