Bartek Elsner from Berlin works with paper and cardboard to create perfect replica of stuff sort from an easy boxed video cassette to a multi-textured chainsaw. When you look closely upon the objects, the symbols, buttons, and typography generally boast a cartoon-like aesthetic. Moderately than focusing on complex realism, these pieces present symbolic reproduction with an animated dynamism. In his piece titled The Branch, where a polygonal raven sits atop a geometric tree branch, the artist keeps everything very angular instead of smoothing out every point and line. There’s also a sense of humor attached to Elsner’s work that is presented both indoors and outdoors.
