More art with clothespins

The other day, I posted about a gallery of artistic use of clothespins on Weirdomatic, and an eerily similar gallery posted on another site a few weeks later.  An artist named Gerry Steca has been working in clothespins for years; here are a couple of his pieces.  For more examples, visit his site.

    I am fond of the wall art in the second pic. I remember the installations I enjoyed most at MPAG were the ones that had supplemental descriptors.

    Steca has a lot of great stuff on his site, I recommend you go there when you have a little time to stroll around.

    I like Stecca’s clothespin sculptures from a distance. They look like organic tunnels and pods, as do some of his other sculptures.

    That’s my reaction too. The design of the clothespin is so anti-organic that when you look at one you can almost forget most of the material used to be part of a tree. It’s interesting how he puts the organic back into clothespins.
