Laser Cut Art by Carlos Aires

I bet you’ve never seen laser cut vinyl art. And if you have, then why have you been keeping it from me for so long? I wanted to experience the awesomeness too, damn it.

They may not play music any longer, but these records definitely have something to say. Artist Carlos Aires created this series, entitled “Love is in the Air”, by using a digital process to laser-cut shapes drawn from images of pornography and disaster and juxtaposing them with innocent scenes of animals and children.

It may not be obvious at first, but this laser-cut vinyl art is more than just simple shapes. What is suggested but not shown is just as much a part of each work as the silhouette itself, and even the text on each record imbues subtle meaning – such as the “Touch Me” title on the body of a muscled man.

Mostly known for his photography, Aires is certainly known for deviating from the conventional in his art, which consists of uncommon subjects like dwarfs and parks known for gay se* cruising in a hazy, fairytale-esque style that imitates romantic painting.
Raised in Spain and currently dividing his time between his birth city of Málaga and Antwerp, Belgium, Aires earned an MA in Photography at Ohio State University. His entire portfolio can be viewed on his website.

The artist makes incredible portraits by recycling paper, canvas, frames and brings acid-free, water-based and non-toxic adhesives and lacquers to use. She creates the portraits by reusing the same images that arrive via mail by cutting them in a way that a completely new and interesting artwork can be formed. If you wish to see her extraordinary artworks, then they are on display at galleries in several cities in North America. Schimmel Gold is also featured in the recently released 2010 edition of Ripley’s Believe It or Not! annual book, “Seeing Is Believing.”
