Sculptural Installation on Display at Robert Berman Gallery
Renowned artist Jason Peters, who utilizes found objects, light and space to create captivating sculptures, will be exhibiting a one-of-a-kind installation this Saturday, March 3rd at the Robert Berman Gallery in Santa Monica, Calif.
Why should you care? Well, there is something inherently enchanting about Peters' work - more than simply turning the ordinary into something extraordinary.
Perhaps it's how surreptitiously he's hidden the fact that using the most banal, everyday objects is precisely what he did to create these wondrous works of art that are just plain fun to look at.
Using only the most generic plastic buckets, chairs, florescent bulbs and the like, Peters has fashioned these everyday items into alluring larger-than-life sculptures. They inspire you to reexamine every everyday object you own - to see how you might be able to breathe a little new life into something you had dismissed as a one-trick pony.
Now what did I do with that old milk crate again?
