Yayoi Kusama, a Japanese artist floats a landscape of 1,300 mirrored spheres at the glass house.
Incorporated into the 49-acre landscape surrounding the glass house, Yayoi Kusama has realized the landscape installation ‘Narcissus garden’. on view from now until november 30, 2016, the work sweeps across the lower meadow and forest, creating a dramatic vista to the west of Philip Johnson’s historic glazed dwelling.
First created fifty years ago as part of the venice art biennale, this iteration of ‘narcissus garden’ comprises 1,300 floating steel spheres, each which measure approximately 12 inches in diameter (30 cm). drifting in the newly restored pond, the spheres move as wind passes and follow the water’s natural currents, forming a dynamic and ever-changing sculpture. the orbs’ polished mirrored surfaces reflect views of the pond pavilion, wooded landscape, and sky that surrounds it.
Magical,Gravity-Defying Landscape Sculptures by Dutch Artist Patrick Bergsma. His newer works demonstrate his endless creativity in sculpting floating, post-apocalyptic homes.
Appearing to defy gravity, old ramshackle buildings painted in rustic shades meld with rock formations and elaborate root systems. Bonsai trees sprout from the top, creating darkly beautiful habitats for tiny, marooned people; a helicopter lands perilously atop one, and on another, a girl kneels pensively amongst the roots of a dead tree.
The innovative piece of furniture, inspired by the 2010 film Inception, seemed to bend reality with its fantastical form—it folded a wooden cityscape onto itself, using the buildings’ underside as a smooth tabletop.
Tiny skyscrapers, churches, and other buildings are fixed around an s-shaped curve, their roofs greeting one another along this path. To make this imaginative furniture a reality, Mousarris utilized 3D printing with wood and steel, as well as hand painted coloring techniques.
Measuring 250 centimeters (98 inches) long, 76 centimeters (30 inches) high, and 70 centimeters (27 inches) wide, this large table is perfect for entertaining. When not in use, it serves as a stunning statement piece in one’s dining room.
England based artist Helen Ahpornsiri continues to explore the possibilities of pressed plant life in her ongoing series of wildlife illustrations that depict insects, animals, and other creatures. Helen has recently begun experimenting with gold leaf that she applies to ferns and then incorporates as accents into various pieces.

Aro Tattoo, aka @tattooist_silo, creates exquisite works of art onto the skin of her clients. Focusing on floral arrangements, the Korean tattooist uses soft pink, red, and blue ink to mimic the colors you’d find in a beautiful sunset. Aro Tattoo completely skips the black ink and defines form with color. These pieces have the feeling of a delicate watercolor painting as hues seamlessly flow into one another.
