Surrealist and Macabre Sculpture by Rebecca Stevenson

On:Axisweb

Rebecca Stevenson is an artist living and working in London. She is best known for her visceral and baroque sculpture in resin and wax.

“My work is concerned with the visceral and the sensual. It draws upon anatomical drawing and botanical illustration, but occupies a liminal territory between scientific enquiry and the subjective, imaginary body.”

Stevenson’s work investigates the relationship between innocence, consumption and desire. In each piece, a sculpted animal is cut, manipulated and refigured. These interventions result in outbursts of colour and texture, twisting the material or “flesh” of the sculpture into forms resembling flowers or fruit.

Drawing on the traditions of vanitas and still life, her work explores the contradiction inherent in the “nature morte“, in which transient everyday objects – bread, meat, flowers, fruit – are immortalised and elevated by the processes of art. Rebecca Stevenson

Creative “Skull-ptures” by Hedi Xandt

Hedi Xandt’s work is everything of modern sculpture madness. The Hamburg based artist of Norwegian descent creates magnificent sculptures inspired from fine arts, mythology and sculptures in the ancient periods which he then casts with a dark, elegant twist resulting in minimal yet striking creations which you can’t keep your eyes off. His inherent dark but as well as their majestic and beautiful appearance resided with the enclosed childhood he had.

Xandt grew up around artists and creative beings, which is why he appears to create so effortlessly, using his creativity to the fullest potential. Not only that, he has a vision that speaks for his powerful three dimensional conceptual art; surprisingly, Xandt is for the most part, is self taught multidisciplinary artist. With formal training in graphic design. Xandt’s compelling collection of conceptual creations feature busts and skulls that are both symbols of art and humanity; composed of gold-plated brass, polymer, distressed black finish, and marble. The gold is a prominent element that adds an accent of terror to the work and symbolizes the sheer beauty of divine purity, but also it’s metallic coldness.

“I think that the main and most important aspects of my work are creativity and concept. Being permanently on the experimental side of thinking and creating, I seek to add to my skills with every piece I begin. Learning-By-Doing, this awfully overused term, applies to me just as well as Doing-By-Learning. The unison of knowledge and skill provides me with inspiration and a broad foundation to be used as a starting point for any kind of project. (Via Inkult)”

Mass,100 sculpted skulls at the national gallery of victoria by Ron Mueck

National Gallery of Victoria: Website | Facebook | Instagram 

Mass is the title of the latest work by sculptor Ron Mueck, an installation consisting of 100 enormous skulls at the National Gallery of Victoria in Melburne.

The skull is the first and strongest archetype of humanity. One of the clearest symbols, capable of representing fear, death, but also pure hedonism, celebration and attachment to life. It’s a form that binds all of us and that has inspired every cultural and religious field in art, fashion, design, graphics, music and illustration. From Damien Hirst to Andy Warhol and Takashi Murakami, from punk to gothic and kitsch. A densely symbolic image, to the zero point of its meaning.So when Australian hyper-realistic sculptor Ron Mueck created Mass, his new installation at the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne, filling an entire room with 100 huge skulls, it was as if he wanted to represent all of us and talk to everyone.But Mass is also a gloomy study on mortality, a work that calls to mind iconic images of the remains amassed in Paris catacombs, and a denunciation/documentation of “contemporary human atrocities in Cambodia, Rwanda, Srebrenica and Iraq,” says the National Gallery of Victoria.Mueck has thus created his greatest work to date. The individual skulls are made of fiberglass and resin, each about one and a half meter tall, while the entire installation weighs about 5 tons. Each skull hand-finished by the artist.Looking at it, it’s impossible to avoid the contradiction between the beauty of forms and the intensity of their meaning.Mass is one of the works that inaugurated on December 15 the National Gallery of Victoria Triennial, an ambitious exhibition that will last until April 18, 2018.

Hong Kong-based designer Kayan Kwok took the time to study these immortal souls. For years, Kwok has been known for his digital and illustrative collages. He applied this style in his project titled Time, where he literally broke apart historical sculptures and collaged them with bone structures and plants. By peeling the heavy marble skin, Kwok was able to create a set of beautiful images. Each collage has a certain meaning and could be deciphered in our own ways.

Human Skeletons Assembled with Found Coral by Gregory Halili

Human Skeletons Assembled with Found Coral by Gregory Halili

With parched white pieces of found sea coral, artist Gregory Halili has been creating skeletal parts of the human anatomy from hands and arms all the way up to a lifesize recreation of a human skeleton suspended atop a giant piece of driftwood. The irregular coral segments are uncanny stand-ins for human bones, and it’s no surprise the artist is able to identify anatomical details within sea life due to his previous work with skulls carved from mother of pearl. Halili was born in the Philippines in 1975 and spent his childhood surrounded by tropical wildlife and abundant regional flora and fauna that would go on to influence his artistic career in New Jersey. You can see more of his recent work on Artsy and at Nancy Hoffman Gallery.

The artist that I show you today is James Bareham, photographer of the New York based creative studio The New Cruelty, as well as the developer of this awesome series of still-life images taken in the exhibition spaces of the famous show “Bodies The Exhibition“.    Photographs taken for the television production company True Entertainment and used to illustrate and explain the complex diseases shown during Oprah Winfrey’s program Mystery Diagnosis. Amazing photographs that show and portray, with spectacular realism and drama, the intricate designs created between arteries, veins and capillaries of the human circulatory system in the torso and head.

Anatomical Illustrations by Michael Reedy

Michael Reedy has created a beautifully grotesque series of anatomical figure drawings. His ability to use and omit color when needed shows his refined intuition for composure. Michael is technically schooled in anatomy and has been able to artistically render images we would normally see in a science textbook.

The Unsettling Creepy Sculptures of Choi Xooang

Coming from South Korea, Choi Xooang has been sculptig for almost 14 years now. Introduced to sculpture in an art school, he was immediately struck by the medium and the possibility of creating an actual and tangible object. Both fascinating and disturbing, Xooang’s figures show his concerns about human condition in the society. Although the intricate details make them as hyperrealistic as the works of Ron Mueck, Xooang’s sculptures are often surreal at the same time, having their bodies disorted or merged with other species. Open for numerous interpretations, they leave the viewer with unsettling feelings. But as the Korean artist said in a recent interview with Yatzer, “If one feels uncomfortable physically or mentally when viewing my work, I would say it worked.”
