Oversized Everyday Household Objects

Spanish sculptor and artist Romulo Celdran (born in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, 1973) makes hyper-realistic oversized versions of everyday household objects.

Romulo says that his series entitled ‘Macro’ “act as camera lens, graduating the scale of measurements with which we perceive what we look at and breaking down the correspondence between the real size of an objects and the size that we perceive depending on how far away from it we are. It acts as a kind of traditional magnifying glass that draws us closer to the object worthy of observation even when we keep an appropriate distance in order to view it.”

“The concept of ‘Macro’ give the object new dimensions, strengthening its presence and inviting us to explore it, discovering hidden spaces and unnoticed nooks. It breaks down the physical laws that govern our logic as observers and place us before a growing world

Gigantic Furniture for Giants

Robert Therrien, a famous American artist, creates over-sized furniture that even the highest basketball players would have serious problems reaching the top of the table. Being a complete ergonomic disaster, his furniture had no commercial success, but found it’s place in the world of art, and now is being exhibited throughout the world in art galleries.

Robert Therrien made this significant breakthrough back in 1993, when he found that by recreating everyday objects true to their original material and color, but on a greatly enlarged scale, the viewer’s relationship to them changed dramatically. This great finding influenced all his ensuing work.

Robert Therrien was born in Chicago in 1947 and currently lives and works in Los Angeles
