You know when something sparks a powerful sense of recognition, but also manages to take you totally by surprise?
Carl Kleiner is a startling example, with a recent stream of highly directed studio shoots focusing on the abstract qualities of everyday objects when focused on in isolation. But his work displays far more than that. It is devastatingly clinical in its delivery of compositions which force you to look at the gleaming qualities of the everyday. His use of shadows and 45 degree angles also adds another level of effortless retro geometry to his work.
