Tiles, cement, glue and metal plates: These are the tools of Graziano Locatelli. Familiar to most people, these elements are so often in places of comfort, such as the restroom or the kitchen, and his images of breakage and emergency evoke unsettled and surreal feelings. Locatelli says, “the subject of the breakage that bewitches me.”

Los Angeles-based artist Kim Kei begins her process by combining and altering everyday objects and natural debris. These malleable sculptures are photographed in several iterations, which become the foundation for her paintings.

Well, these are disturbing. In a good way. We came across the sculpture works of Cameron Stalheim this morning, and they are quite intense and grotesque.

Whether placed in nature or urban environments, these pieces are whimsical and encapsulate a feeling of monumental achievement.
