As if sculptures take on a life of their own, in an odd way, Nick van Woert convinced me otherwise. Working from found sculptures, Woert adds his vision with polyurethane, plastic, and/or steel. Some of the material that is used seem a lot like chewing gum, and in some cases it is. It would've been a whole lot interesting if the entire bust could've resembled chewing gum texture. This is entirely new aesthetic to focus on dissembling found Classical sculptures and interpreting it in a modern vision with differentiating materials. Now I'm inspired. Check his work out!
