The art of CubeWorks
now showing at Art/Exp gallery in the Distillery District
CubeWorks is a group of artists that use unconventional materials to create images. They are known for the art that they create using Rubik’s cubes but they also use crayons, lego blocks, records, dice, guitar picks, spools of thread, and other mixed media. The pictures below are just a sample.
below: A copy of ‘The Creation of Adam’ that Michaelangelo painted on the Vatican’s Sistine Chapel ceiling in the early 1500’s. This image is made with 12,090 hand twisted Rubik’s cubes.
below: On a smaller scale, Space Invaders made with 20 cubes.
below: Artworks made of crayons, LOVE and a smoking gun.
Each square is 12″ x 12″ and contains just over 1000 crayons.
below: The Joker’s face, made with spools of thread, hangs from the ceiling.
below: Images made with old broken record albums, Amy Winehouse and Jim Morrison
