Unexpected Outdoor Sculptures

Uysal Mehmet Ali Clothes Pin

From the gravity defying to the oversized utilitarian object, these outdoor sculptures are magical because they offer up the unexpected.  Who would expect a giant clothes pin to suddenly spring from the earth or two massive slabs of rocks to precariously teeter ten feet off the ground?  In a world where the expected is norm, these sculptors managed to provide a wonderful surprise.

I am so grateful to these artists, to all artists for that matter,  for providing us a respite from the mundane!
