Hyperreal Noodle Sculptures by Seung Yul Oh

Juxtapoz // Monday, January 06, 2014
One of our favorite pieces of art from 2013's Art Basel Hong Kong was the outside, interactive sculpture, "Periphery", by Seung Yul Oh, on display in the main hall of the Fair. We were happy to see this great project also pop up on the web in recent days, the New Zealand-based, Seoul-born artist's series of hyperreal, resin sculptures of various Korean noodle dishes. Hanging over 12-feet above a gallery floor, Oh not only created the noodles to suspend in air, but the meats, vegetables, and eggs all are hand-crafted and appear edible.

New Book Carvings From Guy Laramée

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 24, 2013
Throughout the last year we have posted many different artists who have been using old books as a medium for their art. By carving, slicing, gluing, stacking, and collaging the pages and spines of books, the artists have been creating incredible works of art from otherwise discarded and forgotten about printed materials. One of these artists, Guy Laramée, recently took a 24-volume set of the now discontinued Encyclopedia Britannica and transformed it into a mountain range. The piece, titled Adieu, is inspired by the announcement that the company would cease printing of the book sets.
