Reality Bending Soft Stone Sculptures by José Manuel Castro López

Reality Bending Soft Stone Sculptures by José Manuel Castro López

Spanish sculptor, José Manuel Castro López, creates sculptures that are altering our perception of reality. When you first glance at his works, they just seem like a collection of pinches, twists and wrinkles. But when you realize that the mediums he works with are stones like marble and granite, you stop for a second and ask yourself, how does he do that? How can he make this thing look as if it is soft stone?

When you think about stone, the last thing you expect is to see it as a soft matter. You expect to look at something rigid and hard. José’s sculptures are playing with our minds. By bending and twisting the stones, he is bending what we come to expect from the “real” world.

Have a look at some of his works below. Head over to his facebook page to see some more of his reality bending, soft stone creations.
