Artist of the Day…Pete Goldlust
Today’s artist is a sculptor and installation artist who’s works are really neat to me because they’re abstract. Pete Goldlust‘s works are said to be forums from where various human urges can be acted out through biomorphic forms that feature heavily in his artwork. He creates these sculptures, relief paintings, and installation works using illustration and polymer clay.
Don’t many of those sculptures look like some sort of animal? To me, it’s like Goldlust is creating little worlds of these creatures where they can be a reflection of various traits of human nature. Goldlust has shown in exhibitions around the world, but my favorite works of his are those sculpted crayons. They’re so intricate and isn’t something you’d expect to see when you think of a crayon. Nice!
