John Bisbee has been using nails for the purposes of creating art for nearly three decades! He just might be onto something here.
The Maine-based artist is out with his latest series of sculptures all comprised of the medium of nails. The large-scale pieces feature a number of organic shapes that intertwine and grow. The creations are being exhibited under the title, “Out of the Garden” – a clear reference to the Biblical tale.
At centre is a tree bearing fruit and surrounding it a massive snake-like creature with fangs. Another sculpture, called, “Infinity Pool,” is a circular piece that has large spikes at the outer rim, shrinking to smaller nails toward the center, adding a sense of distorted depth. Bisbee’s upcoming 2018 show will be at the Center for Maine Contemporary Art in Rockland, Maine. Check out some of his latest below!
