Disassembled

One of my favorite things I get to do writing for this blog is share things that inspire me.  Sometimes, at the end of a particularly long week, I have go searching for inspiration. And sometimes inspiration just reaches out and grabs me.

That’s exactly what happened the first time I saw the work of Canadian artist, Todd McLellan.  And as much as I want to plaster images of his work all over this post for you to see, I want to honor his fierce protection of his work and instead direct you to his website where you can see everything there is to this amazing art form (just click the image collage below to access the site).

As you might be able to glean from the mini-preview above, one of Todd’s ventures has been to take ordinary objects and disassemble them and then lay them out using each piece, down to the tiniest detail, to create a geometric pattern that then becomes its own whole.  The end result is really quite fascinating and there’s a great video on his site detailing the process.

What artist is inspiring you these days?
