The art of Rune Olsen


For Everything I Long to Do (2005/08).

A sculpture which resurrects the old tentacle sex motif, part of a series of sculpted works by Rune Olsen exploring unusual erotic permutations; this one of a naked man sniffing round the hind quarters of a wolf (?) also caught my attention.

The octopoid sculpture reminds me that I’d been intending on looking at some of the lesser-known treatments of the tentacle sex theme since I keep running across new examples. Soon maybe, when work here has calmed down a bit.

    You happen to check out his “Flat Works”? Provides a clue to his upcoming work. Yeah. If you think the man & wolf piece is messed up. Wait til you see the polar bear.

    I missed the flat stuff although I have seen that Amanda Lapour picture somewhere before. Yes, the polar bear one is quite an eye-opener.
