Whats this RAGE? well it’s Charles LEONARD marvellous art toy sculpture and dam I WANT it on my wall! Charles LEONARD is a recycling master who turns plastic into creatures with influences both primitive and futuristic, sculpture and toys. The latest is RAGE one huge toy/sculpture.
I turn the designers’ work on these products, for my benefit, I deconstruct all these devices to rebuild in a different approach, I recycle and “sublime” all dynamic curves of these vacuum cleaners, coffee makers etc. To transform them through to a futuristic universe.
kidult to vinyl toys etc, my sculptures are on the border between toy and artwork
Crazy work right? how he can visualise and make something like his is mad, out of things he finds and recycles.
Charles doesn’t just make huge sculptures look at his NANO ITO custom, using a Chaos monkey platform.
This is just a little taster of Charles so head over to http://www.leonartz.com/ and dwell on his work.
