Did You Know?

Each component of this artwork contains tools covered in fabric and white plaster.


Damián Ortega's Tool Bones I-VI comprises six objects. Each component is created with interlaced tools that are covered in fabric and white plaster, resulting in forms that resemble bones. Through this process, Ortega reconfigures ordinary items into organic-abstract objects that evoke questions of mortality and human existence.
