Transformed Wood Sculptures by Darren Foote

Yesterday we wrote about finding inspiration for our homes in fine art and here is a fine artist whose work references home decoration staples — chairs, tables and lighting — to create beautiful, evocative and slightly threatening sculptures.

Providence sculptor Darren Foote was the critic's pick award winner at the recent New England Art Awards. We're wowed by the craftsmanship that transforms stained wood into a broken lightbulb and makes two sturdy chairs look as if they've been melted by an invisible fire. We were hard pressed to find much information about Foote online, but to see more images, visit the website of Boston's Judi Rotenberg Gallery where many of these pieces were part of a show last year.
