Out of the Garden: Biblical tale depicted with massive sculpture made of nails

John Bisbee has been using nails for the purposes of creating art for nearly three decades! He just might be onto something here.

The Maine-based artist is out with his latest series of sculptures all comprised of the medium of nails. The large-scale pieces feature a number of organic shapes that intertwine and grow. The creations are being exhibited under the title, “Out of the Garden” – a clear reference to the Biblical tale.

At centre is a tree bearing fruit and surrounding it a massive snake-like creature with fangs. Another sculpture, called, “Infinity Pool,” is a circular piece that has large spikes at the outer rim, shrinking to smaller nails toward the center, adding a sense of distorted depth. Bisbee’s upcoming 2018 show will be at the Center for Maine Contemporary Art in Rockland, Maine. Check out some of his latest below!
