i’m jealous of peter madden


Yep. I know… I want to get my scissors out too! How can you not want to go image hunting when you come across the amazing, hand-cut work of Auckland based artist Peter Madden. I have to say, I don’t think I’ve ever written “collage” and “sculpture” in the same post, but today, my friends, is that day… and I am jealous. Yowza.

{The¬†Fehily Contemporary, in Melbourne, has an upcoming solo exhibition of Peter’s work – oh, how I would love to see those chairs being carried away by birds in person!}

    These are wonderful! I sooo wish that I could see them in person. For whatever reason (not that there has to be a reason!), I am attracted to the 3d of sculpture and the mixed media of collage. Putting the two together – wow, wow, wow…

    These are insane. I love work that is labor intensive like this. I don’t even truly understand what’s going on in the third piece. These are two-dimensional, or are they three? Wow!

    Such creative work! The second piece reminded me a little of Vik Muniz (http://isuarts.files.wordpress.com/2009/09/monads_toy-soldier.jpg)
    Too bad we can’t all go to Melbourne…
