Over the weekend, I a made pit stop into the 3D Print Show taking place in the Chelsea Gallery District and got a quick but eye-opening crash course in what this phenomenal technology is all about and a sneak peak at the best affordable 3d printers that are about to hit the market. It’s amazing how these objects are made! Anyway, here’s a Pink Owl I took a photo of.

Peacock Made From Plastic Utensils

This charming Peacock Sculpture was crafted by Columbia-born artist Federico Uribe entirely from clear Plastic Forks and Spoons. At the recent Metro Curates art fair, Uribe had an entire booth devoted to his fanciful sculptures created from repurposed everyday objects such as CDs, Bike Helmets, Colored Pencils and Paint Brush Handles. Worleygig.com will be featuring additonal work by Uribe in a future post, as well as highlighting a selection of our favorite artworks from the fair later in the week.

This adorable Bird Figurine with a Human Head (with a bird on that head) (artist unknown) was photographed by me at the Kasher|Potamkin Store, (Rear of the Steven Kasher Gallery) Located at 515 West 26th Street, 2nd Floor, in New York’s Chelsea Gallery District.

Will Ryman’s Bird at the Flatiron Plaza

Bird (2012), is a 12-foot high, 12-foot wide, and 14-foot long sculpture, made with fifty-five hundred actual and fabricated nails in the shape of a bird. The work weighs five tons, and rests upon a nest of ninety thousand nails. Through this sculpture, Ryman changes the meaning of the nail, which is traditionally used to connect materials and build structures. By dramatically altering its scale and using it in excessive quantities, Ryman blurs the relationship between abstraction and realism. As the viewer rotates around the sculpture, Bird transitions from the shape of a bird to a nonrepresentational sculpture.

Bird will be on Display through April 21st, 2013

Owls Are Cool

“I Am An Owl. How Cool Am I?”

I love owls and I almost flipped out when I saw this cool photo of an owl leaping into the air just prior to taking flight. Read all about this rare nature photo at this link.
