Using thick pieces of lumber as the foundation for this site-specific installation, entitled Matchstick Men, German artist Wolfgang Stiller developed a series of giant matchsticks that feature ghostly, charred faces sculpted into one end. The distinct shapes were formed with head molds that the artist had laying around his studio, and they are meant to look as if they simply emerged in the wood after burning each flammable tip. The series includes a variety of bent, warped, and burnt pieces that evoke a strikingly emotional response. Stiller leaves creative interpretation up to the viewer, but regardless of opinion, the strewn matches have hauntingly unsettling references to death and mortality.
