Constantly balancing between science and art, Jonty Hurwitz comes back with his mind-bending anamorphic sculptures.
“Each piece is both an engineering and artistic challenge.”
Our readers may be familiar with Jonty Hurwitz’s incredible ‘Nano Sculptures‘ – the smallest artworks ever created. We have also presented some of his first anamorphic sculptures that, at first sight, seem to be abstract creations, but reveal their true meaning only against the reflective device. Hurwitz’s works, pleasant for the eye and surprising for the mind, are made with the help of the latest technology. Johannesburg-based artist uses precise renderings and calculations before making each sculpture, usually in bronze, copper, or plaster. He says: “I usually start by expressing a concept using mathematical tools, often involving billions of calculations and many months of preparation. Each piece is both an engineering and artistic challenge.”
