Toys sculptures by Freya Jobbins

Oct 22 2012, 12:00 pm 0 Marco Russo

Provocative, funny and disturbing at the same time, the amazing works by the Australian artist Freya Jobbins. Sculptures inspired by various artists, from the famous “composed heads” by Giuseppe Arcimboldo, to the great humans of the Australian Ron Mueck, to the plastination of German anatomist Gunther von Hagen, to finish with the Toy Story trilogy. Three-dimensional faces that, like the grotesque portraits of the Italian painter, combine objects of the same type, elements that share a feature, a color, or a specific topic. An impressive sculptural work, an artistic exploration of the relationship between consumerism and the culture of recycling, a work influenced by the need to build and unite. Obsessive assemblages of used dolls parts and recycled plastic toys, precision and attention to detail, able to give rise to absurd humanoid forms, unique pieces of art.
In the photo gallery you find, as always, below, you can see twelve sculptures, including an impressive Darth Vader in his distinctive all-black outfit and a very detailed Arnold Schwarzenegger in the role of ruthless machine coming from the future, Terminator.
