Brian Jungen–Sculpting with Found Objects
Posted by Janet on February 25, 2008
Brian Jungen, a Canadian artist, assembles found objects into a form of different meaning. The set of skeleton shown above (I believe this is a whale skeleton, but please correct me if I’m wrong) is actually an assembly of plastic chairs. Much of his work incorporates modern materials into native art, among which includes a series of masks assembled from Nike shoes.
