Toothpicks and Matchsticks Sculpture by Jay Wilson

Artist and full-time professor Jay Wilson uses toothpicks and matches to create these beautiful works.

"The work is complex in arrangement and involves simultaneous contrast and communication between cultural references, composition, scope and tempo of process. It is complexity and the lack of hierarchy that is the work’s thrust and provokes questions as opposed to declaring answers, definitive statements or central themes. By juxtaposing sculpture and imagery that is at once familiar and strange, the work moves from unconscious to conscious and in doing so, provides clarity and compositional resolve."
