Awesome Pencil Scultures by Jennifer Maestre!

Have you ever thought about how many pencils we buy over the years?  Before you know you have a huge collection of used pencils. Don’t know what to do with them? There are two options, 1st – Get rid of them, 2nd – tune pencil’s junk into a peace of Art.

Here are some work by Jennifer Maestre, who tuned her obsession with pencils into awesome Pencil scultures. According to  Jennifer, ”she was originally inspired by the form and function of the sea urchin. The spines of the urchin, so dangerous yet beautiful, serve as an explicit warning against contact. The alluring texture of the spines draws the touch in spite of the possible consequences. The tension unveiled, we feel push and pull, desire and repulsion. The sections of pencils present aspects of sharp and smooth for two very different textural and aesthetic experiences. Paradox and surprise are integral in her choice of materials. Quantities of industrially manufactured objects are used to create flexible forms reminiscent of the organic shapes of animals and nature. Pencils are common objects, here, these anonymous objects become the structure. There is true a fragility to the sometimes brutal aspect of the sculptures, vulnerability that is belied by the fearsome texture.”
