Incorporating elements of classical education with contemporary influences, Minas Halaj’s art manifests itself by way of a symphony of graphics, sculptures, collages and figurative compositions.
Halaj uses a variety of recycled material including tar as part of the background and pieces of a pre-Victorian dresses to add texture and dimension making his work deeply complex. Peep more of Halaj’s work at http://minashalajart.com/(via Juxtapoz)
Layers of Painted Glass Form Three-Dimensional Trees
Artist Ardan Ozmenoglu redefines everyday objects in her visually complex sculptures. In the tree sculptures above, the Turkish artist breaks the object down into rows of hand-painted glass.
A single sheet of glass appears to be completely abstract, however, by combining the fragmented parts into repetitive rows, she gives new life to the tree which changes appearance based on the position of the viewer.
