Gerardo Feldstein’s Altered Realism

Argentinian artist Gerardo Feldstein depicts men in jet black suits with extremely exaggerated gestures. These bald characters with big outstretched hands embody humorous narratives as they point, climb, reach, and grab at the unknown. The strikingly long bodies defy gravity and seem to stretch before the eye as they balance tediously on white pedestals. His work is reminiscent of the bold works by Swiss sculpture Alberto Giacometti, who came to be regarded as one of the leading surrealist sculptors in the 1920s through the 1960s. Feldstein's detailed sculptures are a combination of resin, wire, and an array of other materials. See more of these bizarre sculptures after the jump!
