Brinkmann’s still lives and portraits transform anonymous sculpture figures while reminding a bit of old Masters, and leaving found objects’ old function and memory in the dust. Brinkmann’s work hit our radar after checking out Pablo’s Birthday Gallery, one of favorite new New York galleries, and tops our wish list of fine art for its vibrant coloring and stark POV for the start of the new year.

For those of you who have ever felt down on your luck, or maybe a sense of pervading uselessness, the work of artist Thorsten Brinkmann might give you a little reminder to find inspiration you need. Collecting ordinary objects, the disregarded rubbish of civilization, this artist has transformed what was lost and created a unique body of work, diverse and new in its own right, giving useless objects a newfound noble purpose while moving between photography, sculpture, performance and installation art.
