DESCRIPTION

From overused ladders to broken school desks, Aristotle Georgiades re-examines the ordinary and the obsolete, transforming them into aesthetically pleasing sculptures.  The repurposed objects may no longer have visible functionality but rather stand alone on their formal sculptural qualities or sheer absurdity. Elegantly surreal, the artworks reference our fast-paced, task-driven world that often uses objects to express our human need to adapt and change.
