Using old magazines and previously loved books, London-based artist Chris Jones has turned something old into something cutting-edge and new. His new series of sculptures, which are meant to invoke a bit of tainted nostalgia, are gaining a lot of attention for their eerie nature.

A headless horse, a tarnished looking skeleton and a very 'vintage' TV are all included in Jones' exhibition. The objects in and of themselves explain why the sculptures can accurately be described as a little bit haunting. For viewers, there is a definite and powerful feeling of uneasiness upon viewing the collection, as it seems to invoke a sense of danger.

Incredibly detailed and meticulously designed, Chris Jones clearly knows how to get a reaction. Art-lovers are sure to be looking out for what's next for this talent.
