Comb Art

A dominant theme in modern art is to transform everyday, seemingly mundane objects into art. I guess we can blame Warhol for this trend. In the case of Sonya Clark, her object of inspiration is plastic combs. She makes sculptures out of them. She explains: "Combs imply order in as much as they are tools that organize the fibers we grow. They suggest thorough investigation as in 'to go through something with a fine-toothed comb.' When a comb has broken or missing teeth there is evidence of struggle. The missing teeth provide a new rhythm, the music of a new order." [via junkculture]

IMHO... If you need to explain it, it's not art.

She, obviously, had a hair raising experience combing through all those bad ideas before she sunk her teeth into this one.

What she says about it is inconsequential (and I think she's wrong) -- the only important this is whether the work is appealing, and I think they're rather attractive (I wouldn't buy one, but I never buy art for art's sake).

They are neat looking projects. Original too.

Warhol? Go back a few decades to R. Mutt a.k.a. Marcel Duchamp. (Fontaine, 1917.)
