Arty Welcome Post to 2014
I was browsing around the LaughingSquid site after following a tweet at some point and really liked these posts that show how four artists using a range of materials in clever ways. First we have Seung Mo Park and his Wire Sculptures that kicks things off. I love how they (like the others) take a simple material and a technique we can sort of understand but then blow us away with a result that hurts our minds with what can be done. I do like papercraft, so lets let Vincent Tomczyk show us how it is done with his super realistic worn everyday objects. Tom Eckert uses wood with some lovely carving and lacquer paintwork to create pieces that defy the material. Lets finish with something softer, Claire Moynihan embridery skills brought to bear on tiny insects are gorgeous.
