Bruno Catalano is a French artist whose sculptures are often missing pieces. The human figures are travelers heading towards unknown destination, lacking important pieces but still standing. It's as if someone took the Photoshop "eraser" tool to them! Mr. Catalano was born in Morocco and a lifetime as a sailor inspired him to make these intriguing sculptural works.

Once again, AJ Fosik's work just looks stunning and some of the most original fine art sculptures made today. Against the Infinite marks the third solo show at Jonathan LeVine Gallery for the Portland, Oregon based artist, and as the gallery notes, the new work explores themes of "mortality and invention with imagery such as skulls, exposed ribcages, tools and weaponry including sickles, swords, hammers and stakes."

We're not sure what type of creature these piles of sagging, deformed, empty skin belonged to but we sure don't want to meet them. Reminding us slightly of certain Asger Carlsen photos, these sculptures by Francesco Albano are certainly disturbing. Albano sees the skin as the nearest boundary between internal and external identity, a kind of storage space, and "bone" as a stable structure that sustains our physical presence and makes us complete.

This seemingly never-ending staircase titled Diminish and Ascend is the work of artist David McCracken. Part of Bondi, Australia's annual Sculpture by the Sea event, the installation is an optical illusion that plays with perspectives and from certain angles appears to continue endlessly into the clouds!

You may or may not have seen this Revs metal sculpture before. From the photo it looks as if it is in someone’s backyard, unsecured. There is most likely an interesting story behind this piece.

Measuring approximately 40 feet long (12.3 meters), this incredible and massive wooden sculpture was carved from a single log! Based on the famous Chinese painting "Along the River During the Quingming Festival," the painstakingly detailed carving took four years and recently was declared the longest continuous wooden sculpture by Guinness World Records.

We were lucky enough to spend the weekend at West Coast Craft here in San Francisco, we were also lucky enough to become familiar with San Francisco's very own Sean Newport. Newport creates these three-dimensional works by hand cutting geometric shapes and tiling them together to create peaks and valley's faced with electric colors and mesmerizing patterns. See an awesome collection of Newport's work after the jump.

The all-popular Mr. Potato Head gets a fantastic makeover with Melbourne-based artist Stephen Ives series of sculptures, "Mr. Dictator Head." The artist's other plastic toy figures are often humorous, sometimes disturbing (as re-assembled toys often are) and always imaginative and inspired.
