These colorfully transparent door sculptures by Rachel Whiteread are bringing brand new life back into these traditionally vintage pieces of home decor.

Recently featured at the Gagosian Gallery in London, England, this modern art exhibit showcased vintage doors that amazingly date back all the way to the 1700s, merging retro charm with contemporary designs. What makes this art exhibit so unique is that Whiteread chose to transform these antique pieces of home decor into colorfully transparent designs, turning these otherwise rustic items into contemporary artistic elements. With transparent objects often portraying a sleek and futuristic appearance, Whiteread was able to create a wonderfully whimsical collection of antique doors in a way that a modern and artistic audience can fully appreciate.
