Clay sculpture by ronit baranga
One of her latest creations is her anthropomorphic Vase that seems to be hungry for water. The idea, as Ronit explains, is that the vase has a symbiotic relationship with the flowers. The flowers are feeding from the water in the vase, and thanks to that it is recognized as a vase (and not as a bowl, for example). The result is quite stunning, open to interpretations and unconscious associations since you don’t know if the mouths are vegetarian or could even eat your hands!
ew wtf i was like eating right now
no its really cool no sh
I LOVE THESE.
REBLOG EVERY TIME.
“People are on the move in the installations of Clinton De Menezes. Large crowds of people seem to be trudging through a white field – a snowy plain or salt flat. The exodus, though, plays out on the side of a wall. The South African artist’s model migrations exhibit patience and attention to detail. Each figure is hand painted before being placed and plastered to the wall. De Menezes’ installations illustrate the personal and collective drama of human migration. His work is clearly influence by the ever shifting and complex social landscape of the land of his birth.”
This is why I need to go and see the world.

Anish Kapoor, Shooting Into the Corner (2009)
“…A catapult that shoots prefabricated projectiles against the wall of the exhibition hall at a speed of about 50 kilometers per hour. The work in progress continuously gains mass and expands into space so that the sculpture created by the artist with the help of a machine weighs about 20 tons by the end of the exhibition.”
That is awesome. Not even gonna lie rn.
Absolutely love Xooang Choi’s sculptural works! I dropped by at the Hong Kong Art Annual Art Fair yesterday at the Exhibition and Convention Center, and was so excited to, yet again, come across his sculptures. His works reflect his thoughts on the injustices of human rights in Korea, using polymer clay to craft hyper-realistic modified human anatomical features in a rather grotesque manner. I find his works nothing less than impeccable.

Disillusion by Sukhi Barber
Berlinde De Bruyckere’s sculptures are beautiful yet disturbing at the same time. Stuck between figurative and abstract, they are influenced by the work of the Old Masters, and made out of materials such as wax, which provides a uniquely “dead” look to the sculpture. The sculptures highlight an ugly element of the body, showing scars and wounds openly. There’s something disturbingly morbid about her work, but also an element of the beautiful as forms flow together in a way which should not be so natural.
