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, as well as a sneak peak at the 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.
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.
Do you enjoy the work of artist Nick Cave? I sure do. I especially like his very fun Sound Suits, but I also enjoy that he can change it up while maintaining his very distinctive design aesthetic. Nick Cave!
On view now at Jack Shainmans’s West 24th Street space is Cave’s body of work entitled Rescue. The series includes sculptures that incorporate found ceramic dogs sitting on furniture within elaborate grottos or dreamlike dens.

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
