Extraordinary and creative artwork by Tom Deininger who creates sculptures assembled out of trash. The artist has produced fine art installations by recycling found objects and giving them new life. His work is collected by high profile collectors worldwide.
I also found this video where a curator talks about one of Barbier’s sculptures entitled: “In the soup, a cheddar fondue and three nightmares, speech bubbles (tenant & owner), isolated segments (the infinite assassin) and bananas.”
“The color pink, a symbol of confidence, individuality and happiness, is present in everything he creates. Buff Monster’s creative endeavors began by putting up thousands of hand-silkscreened posters across Los Angeles and in far-away places. His frequent poster missions developed into a productive street art career, and he now works on fine art paintings, collectible toys and select design projects. He paints on wood, taking great care to create his images as flat as possible, and his work has been shown in galleries worldwide, often accompanied by large installations.”
The artist’s both sculptures and large scale installations have been exhibited internationally.
Using uncommon materials, the artist creates dynamic forms that intrigue one’s imagination!
I read in the artist’s statement: “Intrinsic to her method is the collecting and sorting of materials from hundreds of different sources over a period of months, even years. In turn, pieces evolve intuitively as if out of the subconscious, the language evocative rather than purely illustrative. As the work takes shape, a new, playful reality emerges, so that the object itself becomes a sort of prism, refracting the layers of meaning and cultural associations buried within, the quantity of materials used sometimes deliberately overwhelming, as if charged with a power and ambition beyond the reach they possess when seen in isolation”.
Balancing between perception and reality she paints on live models, 3d surfaces and various objects and incorporates her creations into various installations that urge the viewer to experience an alternate perspective of her art.
