Yuki Matsueda’s art won’t conform to your walls!

3D is the ubiquitous gimmick of the day. It haunts us everywhere, from movie theaters to museums. Gosh knows that we’ve featured a slew of artists who’ve employed it in drawings and other media. Yuki Matsueda doesn’t make three dimensional art so much as he makes 2D art that can’t be contained. His work is literally jumping off the wall and his solution is to encase it in clear acrylic. Whether it’s the diamonds on a playing card or the stick figure on an “exit” sign, they’re frozen like a fly in amber. It could be argued that Matsueda’s objects seek to escape the glass prison of their own frames. But we think it’s just plain cool.
