While I was at the Shemer Art Center on Sunday, I stopped in the gallery to see the current exhibit. The name of the exhibit is "Materialize" and it's all about 3-D printing. Artists were challenged to create works of art using the unique capabilities of a 3-D printer. My favorite pieces in this exhibit were these by artist Xinggang Wang. The description said they were made of wood and acrylic and they were priced $5000.00 each so I'm guessing it took quite a lot of work to create them.
The one above is called "Soldier" and the one in the back is called "Scholar".
I was really taken by these pieces. They are very subtle yet speak volumes.
