For most people, traditional anatomical mounts are quite crucial and fading out in their decoration options. However, having a aniaml head trophy on the wall is still attractive for some people. To meet the request and protect animal at the same time, Artist Kelly Rene Jelinek fabricates life-sized replicas of taxidermied animal heads using fragments of upholstery fabric. The artist begins with the same foam mounts utilized by actual taxidermists to which she applies shreds of fabric, yarn, rubber, resin (or found) antlers, and glass marble eyes. Alougth, these creation is not realistic, they do looks awesome and surprisingly modern. As Jelinek said “I find that I am constantly trying to make “real life” more magical and extraordinary through the artwork that I create.” If you like them, you can follow her on Instagram. Moreover, Jelinek sells many of her original works on Etsy for those who want to collect them.
When you look at those giant sculpture at a distance, you probably will think those are just typical quirky and colourful sculpture you’d find in a small beach town. However when you look up close, those ocean waste (plastic bottle, lighters, beach shovels, and toothbrushes) made sculptures might give you another feeling – not about art. It’s a shocking transition as a fun work of art shifts into a symbol of our society’s plastic consumption and waste before your eyes. Presented by the “Wasted Ashored” project, these amazing yet disturbing sculptures try to show the everyday person how much garbage is coming up on the beaches and spread the message that ocean trash is a huge problem.
Created by Colombian artist Federico Uribe, “We’re at peace” is a set of unusual artwork which consists in freestanding sculptures entirely composed of bullet shells. It play with the juxtaposition between whimsical subject matter, animals that are full of life, and a historically emblematic and lethal medium. Uribe also hopes people to discover an underlying symbolic and aesthetic reality where life overcomes death and beauty, supplants destruction when look at this work.
Two years ago, we have featured the works of U.S. artist Susan Beatrice, who created steampunk animal sculptures from old watch parts, and today we will bring more spectacular works from her. With the environment in mind, the New Jersey-based artist Sue Beatrice, aka All Natural Arts, made those lovely little creatures entirely out of discarded and found objects (gears, sprockets, vintage pocket watches, etc.) You probably will be amazed how many animals can be created from those discarded materials, dragon, cat, mouse, rabbit, crab and so on. All those effort is made to encourage reusing instead of disposing and thereby accumulating waste on a planet that has limited resources. See more of Susan’s work on her facebook page.
