Grant Garmezy Create Realistic Animal Sculptures Out Of 2,300-Degree Glass

For almost ten years I have been making sculptural glass objects with the intention of pushing the boundaries of glass sculpting to create something new and original.

Through this series, I wanted to recreate the idea of the hunter’s trophy using glass. Hot glass is an amazing material in that it can look look like any other material in the world – fur, wood, metal, stone, ice, fire, water – and the list goes on. I use this unique aspect of glass to help bring these trophies to life. By catching movement and adding spectacular color, I tried to create pieces that were recognizable yet spectacular.

Regan Rosburg’s “Maelstrom” at David B. Smith Gallery

Regan Rosburg‘s mixed-media artworks crystallize elements of nature, submerging what appear to be entire ecosystems in resin. Dominated by shades of off white, Rosburg’s works are filled with found objects such as wire, construction mesh and plastic bags, surprising viewers with the variety of textures and 3D details despite the quiet, even minimalist color palette. These rough materials take on a delicate appearance in Rosburg’s ornate juxtapositions filled with baroque flourishes. Rosburg has a solo show coming up on June 21 titled “Maelstrom” at David B. Smith Gallery in Denver.

Photography by Prue Stent

Prue Stent / Facebook / Worbz.com

Melbourne based, RMIT photography student Prue Stent's work is spontaneous, yet intended. It is soft lensed yet bold coloured. It is delicate, and vulnerable yet approaches issues with a strong sense of opinion. It is striking, enticing, and her signature is undeniable.

With her work often exploring the relationship between femininity and nature, human form and landscape, her works often appear as one thing but inherit several meanings. Although her images regularly feature pastel colours, interesting shapes and forms, the intricacy of the photo’s subject often appears delicate. She orientates her natural backdrops–with human and object subjects– into a translation of the almost symbiotic relationship between them.

With talent like this Stent it made for a future of exhibition and excellence.

Everyday Objects Turned Art Sculptures by Adam Niklewicz

It is always nice to see sense of humor in the art world, and the sculptures of Polish-born, American-based Adam Niklewicz, where he takes everyday household objects and furnishings and transforms them into sculptures, is some of the more playful work we have seen around in quite some time. As curator Steve Holmes writes, “His work evokes not homeland, but rather the absurdity of nostalgia, the futility of trying to be in any place other than the liminal space of the prefixed-American.”
