Mind Bending Sculptures Warp Everyday Objects

Sometimes the world can surprise us… one moment we are looking at something completely ordinary, even boring, and the next we realize it was nothing like we first perceived. Such is the work of artist Alex Chinneck. His strange sculptures use materials common to our everyday existence – bricks, mortar, glass – to create unusual and mind bending objects. Solitary sections of brick wall fold, crack and bend in impossible ways; broken window panes exactly repeat themselves in each frame of a large window; and a looping brick chimney puffs smoke and then sucks it back into its base. Nothing is quite as it seems.

Dream Worlds Revealed On Canvas

Along with some magnificent dreams, Jacek Yerka finds inspiration for his masterful paintings from his childhood memories: the places, remembered feelings and smells of 1950’s Poland. He studied fine art and graphic design before becoming a full time artist in 1980… and we’re glad he did. His paintings will take you through incredible worlds of imagination, bending reality in captivating and clever ways fit to inspire a novel or film.
