In Carlos Tardez´s sculptures there´s an idea of a game of meanings, just as the child looking for shapes in the clouds, from which good, bad and even worse ideas arise but all of them being valid. Carlos Tardez has a talent for portraiture across two- and three-dimensional forms. Yet, it’s in his sculptures that the surreal nature of his works becomes visceral, whether evoking laughter, intrigue, or both. These small figures are often paired with normal-sized, found objects. These interactions create strange narratives.

A circle of time is inexorably rotating as if it was a well-stained clock mechanism. We all, no matter we work, no matter we create, we love, we dream or perform our role in an endless time performance whose directors and actors are we ourselves, are the part of this mechanism…

Israeli artist Ronit Baranga uses white clay and acrylic paint to create beautiful ceramics and sculptures of strange and unsettling things. These weird sprouting fingers and blossoming lips that suggest these once passive objects are now seemingly active creations that can scuttle away and deny their original use.

A selection of the conceptual and surreal sculptures by the artist Adam Niklewicz, who transforms everyday objects into strange, mysterious and offbeat situations.

Artist Warren King began sculpting with cardboard as an attempt to add fantasy to the lives of his children, creatively crafting masks and helmets out of the recyclable material. This slowly evolved into a more time-consuming arts practice as King began focusing less time on costumes, and more time making large sculptures of his own. After a visit to his grandparents’ village in Shaoxing, China, the New York City-based artist felt compelled to more deeply connect with his cultural past. This sparked Grandfather’s Friend, and Arrival Times, a series of life-size cardboard recreations of his ancestors.
