ART: Pavel Platonov’s Geometric Sculptures

Russian artist Pavel Platonov‘s sculptures and photographs inform one another: The 3D forms become props for his 2D work.

Dabbling in gallery installations and public art commissions, Platonov builds angular, layered forms that loom with a haunting presence.

These faceless sculptures beckon us to liken them to objects from the real world — an animal, an artichoke, a UFO from a cartoon — but provide few clues about their meaning. Instead, they allow the viewer to encounter something unreal in physical space. Take a look at some of Pavel Platonov’s work below, images courtesy of the artist.
