Work Worn Hand by Eliza Bennett

Array
Gear  |  Projects
Using her own skin as a canvas, British artist Eliza Bennett  has stitched into the palm of her hand using thread to create the appearance of an incredibly work worn hand. Considering the flesh as a base material, Bennett carefully stitches patterns and lines into the epidermis of her body using colored thread; ‘a woman’s work is never done’ results as an incredibly worn-looking hand, overworked and fatigued.
"Using my own hand as a base material, I considered it a canvas upon which I stitched into the top layer of skin using thread to create the appearance of an incredibly work worn hand. By using the technique of embroidery, traditionally employed to represent femininity and applying it to the expression of it’s opposite, I hope to challenge the pre-conceived notion that ‘women’s work’ is light and easy."

A Wall of 300 Chairs and Clothes by Fumiko Kobayashi

Array
Gear  |  Projects
Artist Fumiko Kobayashi used about 300 chairs to create "1000 Legs, Cultivating Fruits," a huge wall built entirely out of chairs and some old clothing. One side of the wall is composed of used clothes, creating a relatively flat surface while the opposite side is all chairs – almost 300 chairs. The wall, currently on display at the Mori Art Museum through January 13 as part of a show called Roppongi Crossing, evokes Japan's post-tsunami devastation.
"The clothes and chairs for the piece were all collected from the neighborhoods surrounding the museum and the artist’s home. When stacked together, it transforms into a force to be reckoned with."

Deborah Simon’s Incredibly anatomy of bears sculpture

Array
Gear  |  Projects
New York based artist Deborah Simon sculpts faux-bears out of polymer clay, faux fur, linen, embroidery floss, acrylic paint, glass, wire and foam. Aside from their size (around 22″ high), Simon’s bears are realistically detailed and meticulously fabricated. Her inside-out bears tread the boundaries of taxidermy, toy, and sculpture. Simon’s work was recently exhibited at packer schopf gallery for context in miami coinciding with art basel miami beach 2013.
Evolution has always held a particular fascination for me, informing how I create and group the animals in my work. As I’ve read and dug through museum collections to research my pieces, western science’s mania for labeling, codifying and collecting has stood out. Most of this categorizing bears little resemblance to how animals and plants exist out in the natural world and I find this disconnect fascinating.”
