Does size matter? It does; at least for Spanish artist Rómulo Celdrán, who is currently presenting his larger than life work at Hasted Kraeutler in Chelsea. His latest show features hyper realistic sculptures and drawings of objects found in daily life, –-from a spilled can of paint to an ice cube tray. The works in this exhibition encompass two series, Zoom and Macro, and as surprising as it may sound, every single work is meticulously made by hand, delivering a fascinating and playful Alice in Wonderland type show. If you’re a big fan of Claes Oldenburg, you’re in for a treat, as Celdrán delivers a similar “Honey, I shrunk the kids” experience, but much more crisp (welcome to 2014).
