Join the Big Picture

A blog that aims to spark thoughts and inspire by seeking out and sharing works of art

Historically, artists have always worked big, and nowadays those boundaries are being pushed to the limits.

Large-scale art, whether in the form of photos from the Hubble space telescope, sharks floating in tanks of formaldehyde, rooms full of dots, concrete sculptures cast from Victorian buildings or hand knitted blankets wrapped around trees, large-scale art is all around us. Join the Big Picture aims to spark thoughts and inspire by seeking out and sharing these works.

All content by Karla Thompson, an ex-pat Aussie living in East London. When not working on Join the Big Picture she is part of the backbone to the Leonhard Pfeifer brand.

Frieze London 2013 - Jennifer Rubell

Jennifer Rubell, Portrait of the Artist
Stephen Friedman gallery

Frieze London 2013

American artist Jennifer Rubell's work - Portrait of the Artist - was made using a digital scan of her body whilst eight months pregnant and fabricated into a two tonne gleaming white fibreglass sculpture.

Her work in the past has been focused on the act of participation - often inviting viewers to partake in the work, thereby violating the traditional boundaries of art institutions and engaging senses usually forbidden in a gallery context.

This new work keeps on that path - an open inviting womb space, ready to accept visitors is both exceeding hospitable, and also a little bit freaky.

Regardless, I climbed in and found it a comforting perfect little snuggling space.
