Wire birds and shadows are a cool combination.

Love that palace. The displays are kinda spooky.

Great! But how were they allowed to be fixed on the walls?!

Sylvia K said...

I agree with Lowell and I love that palace, too!! Great shots for the day, Jose, as always!! Hope your week is going well!!

Very different, but I like the effect!

Rhodesia said...

Different but they look a bit ghostly to me! Diane

Slightly creepy!

Bill said...

Little bit scary, but incredible craftsmanship.

Sharon Anck said...

How interesting. I've never seen anything like it before.

Hilde said...

very special art! a bit creepy in such a luxurious interior. Anyway I like the contrast.

Gunn said...

Nice unique and impressive work!
If it´s dark, not much light, only candles ..... and the wind is blowing. the windows slamming..... it could have been perfect for a film too.

Those are special artworks presented in a an unsual way that suits very well with this environment.

I like the sculptures a lot! Really fanciful. I met a young wire sculptor who makes dragons and other things. Some of his dragons are "wearable," they sit on your shoulder.

That is a creative installation.

Oh my gosh! I'm sure you know exactly how much I'd like to see this Jose. Merci beaucoup for showing here.

Here are some more pictures of Lance Vanderbush and his work. I especially like the wearable dragon, which you can see Lance modeling if you scroll down a bit.

Those are so cool. They are so energetic and dynamic, ,maybe a little menacing, so full of frantic movement. I love them! Like ghosts or phantoms haunting the castle.
