I have always been interested in art incorporating bones, taxidermy and other macabre materials, so when I came across Jessica Joslin's work, I thought it was really exciting. She uses animal bones, antique fabrics, metal pieces from instruments and other vintage items to create these creepy/adorable creatures. http://www.jessicajoslin.com/jessica/index.html
A friend sent me the link for artist Michael Paulus, who has taken popular cartoon characters and used his imagination to render their skeletal systems. It’s quite amusing and off-putting at the same time.
I came upon Fabio Viales work online and was blown away by his incredible marble creations. He makes paper planes, giant pieces of popcorn, even a workable motorboat, all out of marble. In some instances he uses recognizable art such as the Mona Lisa or Hirst’s Diamond Skull and renders them in marble but creates the illusion that they are made of Styrofoam. Craziness!
