Book Sculptures by Brian Dettmer

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 06, 2015
Working with knives, tweezers and surgical tools, Atlanta-based artist Brian Dettmer carves one page of a book at a time, exposing each layer while cutting around ideas and images of interest. Nothing inside the books is relocated or implanted, only removed. The image and ideas that he reveals are used to expose alternate histories and memories.

More Anamorphic Installations by Bernard Pras

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 06, 2015
We posted anamorphic (the art of stacking objects to create a huge 3D sculpture) portrait installations by Bernard Pras before. The artist fills an entire room with found objects, creating a portrait. This morning we take a look at more of the French artist's impressive large-scale compositions. 

Wire Mesh Portraits by Seung Mo Park

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 02, 2015
Some people paint portraits, and others (or in this case, one other) cut layer upon layer of wire mesh to create a portrait. Korean artist Seung Mo Park starts with a photograph then superimposes it over layers of wire with a projector, and then starts snipping away! We've posted the impressive wire work of Seungo Mo Park before, examining his flawless sculptures...

Realistic Wood Carvings by Randall Rosenthall

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 02, 2015
At first glance the artwork of Randall Rosenthal seems to be piles of old magazines, newspapers, and boxes of money. Look a little closer and you will (maybe) notice that they are actually carved wood painted in impressive detail! Using only acrylic paint and a single piece of Vermont White Pine, Rosenthal is able to create a realistic looking sculpture solely from his imagination.

Bizarre Porcelain Sculptures by Jason Briggs

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 30, 2015
Jason Briggs lives in rural Tennessee where he teaches part time in Nashville and spends the rest of the time in his studio creating these bizarre porcelain sculptures. Through his work, Jason is searching for a fresh perspective and trying to create objects that he's never quite seen before and "whose inherent mystery and intrigue quietly insists upon viewer interaction." In his words, "Obvious sexual references, along with an extravagant, fetish-like attention to surface, can arouse a yearning to touch as powerful as the act itself."

Ben Butler's Unbounded Installation at Rice Gallery

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, June 24, 2015
Ben Butler's latest installation, Unbounded, is a light, meticulously-constructed sculpture made from around 10,000 hand-cut poplar sticks—a stylistic departure from the dense wood pieces we posted about in 2013. The piece is currently up in the Rice Gallery at Rice University in Houston. Butler chose poplar for its low-cost, malleability, and abundance.
