In the series “Macro”, Rómulo Celdrán takes everyday objects and turns them into larger than life sculptures. From ice cube trays to a bitten pen cap, objects are recreated at a scale of hundreds of times more than the original. Some of them are even over seven feet tall.
His work is greatly inspired by Claes Oldenburg, a famous pop artist. “His works involving objects and departures from scale to inflate reality were very important when I started developing my ‘Macro’ series,” he explains. “Based on the starting point that he suggests, I tried to create my own vision of reality, on one hand based on a personal collection of objects, and on the other, of a meticulously realistic analysis of those fragments.”
