The Awakening Sculpture in Washington, DC by J. Seward Johnson

Juxtapoz // Friday, November 09, 2012
We are in a Washington, DC mood this week, obviously, and perhaps the locales there knew about J. Seward Johnson's amazing The Awakening sculpture, but we just learned of it. The 70 foot sculpture has been around since 1980, and was selected for the International Sculpture Conference Exhibition. The piece is made of aluminum, with much buried under the surface.Of course, the parts that are visible make the piece that much more dramatic.

Wood Sculptures by Dan Webb

Juxtapoz // Thursday, November 08, 2012
Gessato always posts amazing things on their site (contributor Allison Parker seems to find the good stuff), and they got us onto the amazing wood sculpture work of Dan Webb this morning. A mixture of every objects (a slept on pillow) and the surreal (sneakers attached to bones attached to a slab of wood), the incredible detail that Webb carves and sculpts shows how masterly he can be with everyday wood.

A Car Crash Painted Body Sculpture

Juxtapoz // Thursday, November 08, 2012
At first we didn't have a clue of what we were looking at, but then the piece begins to take shape. You are looking at a depiction of a car crash, as composed by painitng humans and organizing them in the shape of the crash. Australian aritst Emma Hack created the piece with 17 people, and over 18 hours of work. Watch the video...  

Shattered Glass Sculptures by Daniel Arsham

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, November 07, 2012
We can barely stand walking near shattered glass, little actually making something from it. New York-based Daniel Arsham has taken glass and created these fantastic and eerie figurative sculptures, making the figures appear even more fragile than your average, well, human. 

The GOLLUM SCULPTURE AT A NEW ZEALAND AIRPORT

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, November 07, 2012
If you film it in your country, you get the creepy airport installation/sculpture. At the Wellington Airport in New Zealand, a 2,645 pounds,9.8 foot high and 43 foot long sculpture of Gollum is now reaching over you as you wait and eat before your flight. Done in conjunction with the release of The Hobbit (in theaters on December 14), the piece was created by the Weta Workshop.

Mirage by Katie Grinnan

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, November 06, 2012
Obviously, unless you have been under a rock, you know that it is Election Day here in the United States of America. That said, go vote. Don't read blogs. Wait, maybe the New York Times, but not art blogs. But if you happen to be on the art blog rounds today, we found this sculpture by Katie Grinnan called Mirage, that we thought spoke to the coming together of people to do something in unison. Hopefully vote blue. Or perhaps that Mirage thing is too much to ignore...

DIRITTURA D'ARRIVO by Mezzapelle Deriu

Juxtapoz // Friday, November 02, 2012
Lara Mezzapelle and Giacomo Deriu live and work between Bologna and Barcelona. Their artistic research, born out of sharing personal and professional artistic careers, explores the new possibilities offered by digital language to develop New Media Art works, such as interactive video installations and installations/sculptures modeled on 3D graphics software and built by laser prototyping.

Damien Hirst "Verity" Sculpture

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 30, 2012
Finally, we found our Halloween costume. Recently, Damien Hirst's 66-foot bronze sculpture, Verity, was placed/erected/dropped in the coastal town of Ilfracombe, England. That is 66-feet of naked pregnant bronze woman holding a sword aloft standing upon legal books, with half her innards exposed and half her body just fully bronze and naked. For those into language, "verity" means "truth" in Italian.

Beer Cans to Sculpture Art by Macaon

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 25, 2012
Normally we like to leave our beer drinking to after-hours away from the office, but we ran into this article this morning about Japanese artist Macaon transforming everyday beer and soda cans into sculpture art, and we couldn't resist. These are actually quite good, so good in fact, we want to know how much beer was consumed in the making of Darth Vadar?
