Favorite Artists: Juan Muñoz

Filed under: Favorite Artists, Sculpture, The Uncanny — norulesnoshame @ 04:17

I first saw Juan Muñoz’ work around the time of his death, give or take a year, and the two are forever intertwined in my memory and emotion banks. Add to the story the fact that at the time, I was drawing and painting people with giant, grotesque smiles, and you’ve got yourself an otherworldly feeling. I love his use of space, how he would hang something in the middle of a giant space with extreme minimalism (ok, a hanged sculpture of a man is not completely minimalist). I’m also a big fan of giant smiles, especially when added to creepy little bronze people with giant balls for bodies.
