I love this! These sculptures by Richard Stainthorp are so cool

Humoring the Goddess

English artist Richard Stainthorp captures the beautiful energy and fluidity of the human body using wire.

Wire is not automatically what one would consider as a ‘material’ for creating solid, three dimensional sculptures.

But Stainthorp has been making wire sculptures since 1996.

The life-sized sculptures feature both figures in motion and at rest, expressed in the form of large-gauged strands that are densely wrapped around and through one another.

Stainthorp also allows the bent wires to shine by keeping their metallic appearance free from any obvious painting or additions.

The breathtaking spirals add a depth to these structures made of thick-gauged strands that are densely wrapped around and through one another.
