Pauline Aubey: Lego Art
Barbarella | 2903 lego bricks glued on 2 large legobaseplates assembled on woodpanel | 15/30 inches
I’ve only started working with lego bricks this year. I’ve always picked my subjects from Pop culture and realized legos were a great choice medium to make substance and form come together.
I initially worked on simple square pieces for my first series called “Spotlights” but I have expanded to larger scale pieces.
My upcoming series “Doll Parts” focuses on sexy iconic movies scenes and necessitates the horizontal assembling of 2 large lego baseplates to create a cinemascope rendering.
My latest work “Barbarella: Queen of the Galaxy” is its first piece. My purpose here is to use the landscape format in quite a literal way, allowing the viewer to experience the female body as a psychedelic landscape.
