Creating extraordinary versions of ordinary objects
I chose to select a piece of art in the category Creating extraordinary versions of ordinary objects. This piece of art is made out of an everyday object that most people use to maybe create art but don't see it as a piece of art itself, pencils. Artist Jennifer Maestre puts a group of scraped, carved pencils together to create a small picture as you see here. Its a different way to not only use ordinary pencils to create art but show that pencils can be used as a form of art as well.
