Organized Art

Organized Art

Swiss artist Ursus Wehrli deconstructs paintings into essential components and organizes them by size and color.

For his latest book “The Art of Clean Up”, the artist decided to bring this unique art into the real world by arranging food, parked cars, everyday objects, and even groups of people.

    At first (when I read the opening paragraph) I thought it would be terrible, but seeing the work I had to change my mind.

    I think the kid’s posture in the “organised” sandbox sums up my feelings nicely – it sure looks pretty, but you can’t do anything with it. There’s something about the raw-ness of mess that’s attractive. Ask any 5-yr-old.

    I really love the videos, they show how he can contrast “choas” with order and the art therein.

    @Anon- before you accuse, Aspergers is a syndrome, not a disease, and operates on a spectrum. If this is affecting this man, more power to him for working through it or even with it.
