    Andy Ralph: Garbage Clan

Andy Ralph is the master of strange and surreal hardware store sculptures

Posted by James Cartwright,

Why do we love Andy Ralph? For the way he takes everyday objects and transforms them into works of unparalleled visual wit. By using items commonly found in hardware stores and littered around domestic locations, Andy “straddles the line between function and fiction, subjectivity and banality”. Witness his Zenofence, a public installation of stacked picket fences that explores the way we carve up the urban landscape. Marvel at his Trash Clan, an extraordinary mob of overturned dustbins furiously attempting to right themselves. If there’s one thing Andy definitely understands it’s how to turn the everyday into the quietly surreal.
