We love this behind the scenes window into the work process of portrait sculptor, Gary Card. It’s a fascinating first-person perspective into how he uses multi-coloured plasticine to create his hauntingly surreal objects. Card has always been fascinated by the beauty, physicality and immediacy of plasticine. He also has a great love for classical sculpture, and has a long-held ambition to bring these two seemingly unrelated subjects together. For this project, Card has reinterpreted conventional portrait photography, creating vibrant, multi-coloured plasticine sculptures.
The psychedelic, color-saturated, plasticine freak out that is our material culture finds its artistic embodiment in the work of Stefan Gross, who uses discarded toys and found objects to create a gooey mess.
