Paolo del Toro‘s (previously featured here) heads he’s making now are sculpted foam with needle felt features, “a painstaking process” that can take months to complete. He’s been working on his biggest piece so far: the head of a woman wearing a crown of flowers covered in insects, with a toad in her mouth. “It’s a goddess figure of life and death, inspired by religious sculptures from traditionally patriarchal religions, but subverts that imagery to address matriarchal themes found in witchcraft and paganism.”

Amsterdam based Folkert de Jong is best known for his theatrical narrative that address themes of war, greed and power. A sense of tragedy and absurdity, a comically desperate psychological state, permeates his work, particularly through the sculptural material for which de Jong became known: industrial Styrofoam and Polyurethane insulation foams.

Kyoto-based artist Kohei Nawa created a huge and immersive cloud-like installation made of small bubbles. Located in a dark room, the piece consists of floating foam that accumulates to form an ethereal structure that spreads across the space.

“Each bubble cannot escape the cycle of birth and destruction, which is not unlike the way our cells operate as they metabolize and circulate.”

“Les Mousses” by Etienne Gros

Etienne Gros 01 Les Mousses by Etienne Gros sculpture nudity foam etienne gros
These sculptures are strange. They look so artificial, yet so plush and flesh-like. It’s one of those art objects you can enjoy looking at, but maybe do not want to own. Having this in your house, maybe creepy? Or maybe awesome, we dare you to show us wrong and make it awesome.
