MAN-E-NEWS// The Unplugged resin sculptures from Mark Gmehling x Creo Design…

unnamed-21

Creo Design have teamed up with artist Mark Gmehling for the release of their latest resin sculpture, Unplugged! Based on a digital print by Gmehling (pictured below), Creo were tasked with transforming the central character into a 25cm tall statue, with owner Chris Alexander hand sculpting and casting the piece in their unique PU resin. Gmehling kindly explains a little behind the project- “The unplugged sculptures and especially the print are inspired by my perception of society as are a lot of my works. The print shows ten unplugged’s doing this endless walk-cycle is a metaphor of the daily grind that never stops- The kind where you perceive life through a tunnel that only focuses on sustainable growth and profit maximization. The brain is unplugged, you are a zombie sleepwaking on autopilot.” Keeping in-line with the original art, the statue has been limited to just 10 pieces, coming in at 600euros ($821) plus shipping. Interested parties can get in touch with Creo directky at creo@cdtoys.co.uk with any enquiries…
