Welded Steel Sculptures by Frank PlantJuxtapoz // Friday, 02 Dec 2011
Who doesn't want a steel gun over their family room couch? Barcelona-based, American born Frank Plant creates these clean, welded steel sculptures of various objects and day in the life scenes of people at the beach, moments of conflict, or just an everyday queue.
Plant says of his work:
“My work is about physical and social observations. I think of things in terms of compositions whether that be an object, a line of text or a social situation. It’s important to me that the work be open and accessible. I look equally for harmony and discordance and find them similarly revealing and fascinating. I’ve been imbued with a sense of social awareness and hence choose to deal with these issues, as I see them, sometimes in my work. Finding and examining the subtle manners of communication of and between humans for me is all about exposing the balance and symmetry or lack thereof in our everyday existence.”
