British sculptor Richard Wilson takes apart everyday objects and remodels them to keep the familiarity of the object, yet also create a new perception in this altered form.

This is an ingenious way to use destruction of well-known elements to present a new way to look at things. Richard Wilson's work usually includes common objects ranging in size from pool tables to trucks, walls and even entire homes. He digs wholes in the center of the ground if necessary, and even turn tables upside-down, sideways and have them standing on their vertices while stacking them upon each other if it means his audience will successfully realize that everything can always be looked at with a fresh perspective.
