You probably won’t believe me but these are not just pieces of trash that someone took pictures of. In fact they are paintings by artist, Tom Pfannerstill. Yes thats right these are paintings! Tom takes pieces of wood and carves them into random pieces of garbage and paints them absolutely perfect! You probably won’t be able to tell for sure unless you were able to touch them. Im still looking for a flaw to give it away that these are carved and painted pieces of wood but I can’t find one thing out of place. This artist is more interested in the journey that things take after they have been discarded. The stories they have with them that put them in the condition they are in. Try to spot a flaw.
He spends a lot of time making these pieces of “garbage” absolutely perfect and his attention to detail is phenomenal.
“Each of these objects was at one time a near-perfect clone of millions of others of it’s type. It was designed and manufactured to exacting standards. By the time I find it, it has become a tiny study of opposing forces. Mechanical geometric precision is altered by organic twists, bends and folds. The inherent rationality is overlaid with elements of chance. The sparkling clean surfaces are smudged and marked by everyday dirt, grit and grime. No two objects have exactly the same journey , so no two are marked in exactly the same way. Each wears a record of its own particular history, has become unique. It is this difference, this particular story of this particular object that I attempt to capture.”
