Jade Fourès-Varnier: Eye Of The Tiger

Work / Sculpture

Sculpture: Jade Fourès-Varnier’s giant sunnies are pure pop art perfection

Though we’d definitely argue that the internet doesn’t do justice to sculptural work – you’ve just got to see that stuff in the flesh to enjoy it properly – we reckon Jade Fourès-Varnier’s sculptures are probably the closest you’ll get to a web-friendly piece of 3D art. These giant (and I do mean giant, they’re about the length of a large man) pairs of specs have been laboriously hand-made, their lenses filled with cinematic scenes of natural disasters, scenic beauty and actual movie stills. The results are spectacular – the contrast between these garish fashion items and the vast expanse of the natural world serving as a glaring reminder of the bizarre reality we inhabit.
