shattered glass sculptures by daniel arsham


detail of ‘thinking glass figure’ by daniel arsham

cross-genre new york-based artist and set designer daniel arsham has expanded his eclectic scope of works with his latest sculptures
made entirely from shattered glass. the pieces chiefly focus on depicting the human form – each one pensive, still and surreal –
an almost stoic quality contrasting the fragile associations connected with the artwork’s ingredients. the abstract body of work is
homage to arsham’s mastery in medium, case in point of his prowess in merging form and material in a considered and meaningful way.
some of the pieces are able to be seen at pippy houldsworth gallery in london until the 17th of november, 2012.
