Jason Peters Creates Abstract Installations from Household Objects

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

New York-based artist Jason Peters constructs winding installations composed of discarded objects, re-contextualizing mundane commodities until they take on otherworldly shapes. The artist collects ordinary buckets found in hardware stores, stacking them up in illuminated, suspended sculptures that create a sense of suspense with their abstract forms. “Works that appear unstable, for example, looming over and even threatening the viewer, create new levels of tension and dynamism within the installation,” writes Peters on his website. “At the same time, the repeated elements in the patterns of my work trigger feelings of calm, safety, and familiarity that play against this sense of dynamic inconstancy.” Take a look at more of Peters’s work after the jump!
