The surreal and disturbing sculptures by Yui Ishibari


Yui Ishibari is a japanese artist who works with paintings and sculptures, but her main focus is her sculptures. Ishibari creates disturbing and bizarre art pieces, portraying children taken by plants, in a grotesque fusion of body, leaves, branches and roots. Ishibari’s sculptures are made from a wide range of materials, from resin, steel wires, cloth, stone powder cray and wood. The final pieces are surreal figures, hopeless against the forces of nature, figures who accepted their cruel destiny, a metaphor for nature’s power over the man.

A series of architectural scale models constructed with black paper and covered with flour and a layer of mould to create the effect of old abandoned buildings.
My purpose is to talk about the sense of time and destiny of the planet after the human species, through the sense of restlessness which abandoned buildings are able to communicate.” Daniel Del Nero

Fragile Skeletons by Giovanni Longo

giovanni longo recovers wood to form fragile skeletons series

Fragile Skeletons is a series realized with the wood recovered on the beach from Italian artist Giovanni Longo.
As Giovanni says, the wood “is a sincere material that does not deny its own past and its own history.”
The first wood skeleton was created for a school exam in artistic anatomy.
The choice of the subject, the study of the original structure, the research on the field, the cleaning and the montage of the artworks are all part of a very precise and attentive process that gives to each sculpture an absolute amazing verisimilitude and an aspect almost scientific.

Osteology Studies

So here is a peek at what I do! Im keeping tattooing at a minimum this week as im busy preparing work for a show and an application for funding so I can open a metal foundry. I do osteology studies and can articulate skeletons of birds, fish, animals. I would love to further my work in metals and other media for sculpture and also wearable art. Im also busy organising a charity art auction to raise money for the cystic fibrosis foundation in ireland so do contact me if you are an artist reading this and would like to also help! I would like to point out no animals are harmed for me to make art!

Anyway none of the pieces are finished I have to make bases and decorate each piece so that it illustrates the concept of memento mori! 🙂

Bones with bling!
