CreativaMente... RecyclArt.






by Haroshi







 You may never look at shoes the same way again after seeing Gwen Murphy and her shoeface art. Gwen Murphy takes old pairs of shoes and gives them new life as bizarre pieces of art.
Gwen Murphy uses ash clay and acrylic paint to give each pair of shoes a personality all its own. The nicer the shoe, the classier the face tends to look, with high heels getting the ancient Egyptian treatment and tennis shoes becoming monsters. If you’re hunting for odd and awesome artwork, look no further than Gwen Murphy’s ‘Foot Fetish.’












Assemblage Series
1999-2010

"I started making assemblage artworks of this type in 1999. The artworks are made entirely out of collected junk, found objects, and general trash. I glue the bits of junk to a wooden substrate to form an image, usually faces, which only can be seen at a distance. I was interested in communicating through visual representation in apparent 2-dimensional space and through the actual objects used for the medium in 3-dimensional space. It is very important to me that I incorporate the actual objects into the art as opposed to a picture or rendition of it because it better expresses the intention of the artwork. I feel the junk is more powerful being present. It is an actual thing to be reckoned with that existed in this time and place and carries energy in and of itself." Zac Freeman

Coisas tão simples setornando grandes obras de arte, isso é uma grande fonte de inpiração.
