Nothing is quite what it seems in the work of artist Frank Kunert (b. 1963). The German model maker and photographer’s polished, surreal studio-shot images depict settings that are slightly askew. Domestic spaces are inverted somehow, mysteriously emptied of human presence with objects that appear too large or small for the room. In one, a diving board protrudes from an armchair, jutting through a window and out into a horizon of fluffy white clouds. In another, a rocking horse teeters on sky-high ladders, just about to topple over the edge of a brick wall.
