Absurd Delight picks from Sculpture by the Sea 2009

One of my favorite yearly art exhibits I’ve never been to is Sculpture by the Sea. I know nothing about it really except that I see pictures on the net every year. So I might as well blog about it like I know what I’m talking about.

Best of all you can take these sweet babies home for just $6,000! Compare that to the $32,000 for the framed picture frames at The Armory Show. And that wasn’t even anywhere near a beach!

Fabulous like scrabulous! Ok, it’s mainly cute. But it’s giant and it gets the job done at proving that your mind fills in gaps whether you like it or not. So I’ll call that clever!

A few more photos of giant pencils and beach themeed sculpted whimsy after the jump.

This one makes me want to be there in person. Is it really made out of drain rubber? And what is the chain attached to? Does it go all the way into the ocean?

I think I like this one for the crisp shadow it casts, or maybe because that goes well with the title? Also, how does it stay up?

See the full 2009 exhibit here.

BONUS: from 2006 Sculpture by the sea, my all time favorite sculpture I’ve never seen.
