One Of The Strangest Farms You’ll Ever See.


Gibbs Farm is an unusual setting for a sculpture collection. The North Auckland property is dominated by the Kaipara Harbour, the largest harbour in the Southern hemisphere.  Walking the land visitors can appreciate how each artist has come to terms in their own way with the gravitational pull that is exerted on everything as the mountains roll into hills and slide into gullies and slope down towards the wide flat expanse of the Kaipara harbour.

After nearly twenty years Gibbs Farm includes major works by Graham Bennett, Chris Booth, Daniel Buren, Bill Culbert, Neil Dawson, Marijke de Goey, Andy Goldsworthy, Ralph Hotere, Anish Kapoor, Sol LeWitt, Len Lye, Russell Moses, Peter Nicholls, Eric Orr, Tony Oursler, George Rickey, Peter Roche, Richard Serra, Kenneth Snelson, Richard Thompson, Leon van den Eijkel and Zhan Wang.

What happens when Sigga Heimis from Labland pairs up with the team at Corning Glasses GlassLab? You end up with human organs laying all around the room, but thankfully, they are made from glass not human tissue. The GlassLab is the design and production arm of the Corning Museum of Glass. Their collaboration with Sigga Heimis produced a series of human organs including kidneys, stomach, heart, lungs, eyes, intestines, the human brain, and magic. The translucent organs are amazingly details reproductions of human organs carefully blown and stitched together by the glass artisans at the GlassLab. Many pieces required the team work of 3 to 4 glass artisans working in unison to rotate, hold, and position the pieces as molten glass was added.

Ben Young, the self-taught artist is currently based in Sydney, was raised in Waihi Beach, New Zealand, where the local landscape and surroundings greatly inspired his art.  His incredible glass sculptures have a distinct realism that bring the feel of the ocean, while still having clean, crisp feel to them.  Check the method.

Li Hongbo Is Probably The Reason You’re Out Of Paper.


Li Hongbo is one of most gifted sculptors in recent memory.  His medium is a bit unconventional however.  A book editor and designer, Li became fascinated by traditional Chinese toys and festive decorations known as paper gourds made from glued layers of thin paper which can be stored flat but then opened to reveal a flower or other shape. He applied the same honeycomb-like paper structure to much larger human forms resulting in these highly flexible sculptures.

Check out these awesome sea-creature sculptures from Japanese artist Showichi Kaneda. He combines brand-intensive, slick and somewhat predatory shapes of Formula 1 cars with sea predators like sharks and giant squid in his “Human’s Own Evo” series.

Yuki Matsueda’s 3D Sculptures

17 general

Yuki Matsueda is one of the most interesting talents in 3D wall sculptures today. He takes graphics we expect to be flat and turns them into leaping in your face 3D sculptures that catch your attention and make his message clear. You stare at the jigsaw puzzle seeing that one dastardly piece that is always missing, exploding from the puzzle headed into oblivion. The exit sign man is making his break running out of the sign into the open air of the room. Yuki’s playful look at the two dimensional world around us creates a sense of fun, humor, and deeper communication.
