Art can be so many things. Some like it beautiful, some like it disturbing… Rob Wynne‘s installations are definitely on the beauty side even though his huge mushrooms have something to them which irritates me. Maybe it’s their size or their flashing colours, which kind of scream “Try me” (I would call it the Alice-in-Wonderland effect). I discovered his work through the brilliant AnOther Magazine. His texts – poured and mirrored glass installations – are kitsch and decorative at first sight. But the visual effect that they look like they are almost melting – dripping kitsch – adds a quite ironical element to them. I like them a lot and I do find them very decorative (sorry Mr. Wynne) – but in the best possible way!
