This is for all the architects and designers out there who felt like blowing things up at least once in their carrier. Artist Ben Grasso creates graphic works featuring decomposing homes. Here are some information from an official review done by Thierry Goldberg Projects, New York: “With a palette that both augments the vividness, and thus the confusion, and even horror, of these unraveled, suspended structures, while amplifying to its sublimity, Grasso lends an unflinching eye in his depictions of the process of decomposition/re-composition. Through the gorgeously scrupulous conveyance of planks and frames and angles, these paintings are dedicated to the graphic description and analysis of a given emblem—the American home. As dissection sheds light on the anatomical relations among components, viewers get a snapshot of total havoc. And yet whatever might be seriously at stake here, the surrealism of the scene is always there to mediate the experience of viewers, and the images never fail to insist on their acutely wrought artifice“. So there you have it: a simple way to enjoy art and a small therapy to suppress whatever negative thoughts your job may inspire!
