RIP Richard Artschwager

I'm kind of seeing a morbid theme to my posts.....
Another artist bit the dust this year-

Richard Artschwager died 2013

He died on February 9th to be exact. He was a 60's artist who dabbled in paint and sculpture (I guess a bit of pop art and conceptual?). 

I would best describe these as weird versions of art furniture. He played with perspective and shape playing with his viewers perceptions. Shame he died, his stuff looks interesting. I wonder what prompted him to play with these odd shapes and why furniture like pieces? Is he challenging our thought and physical space of what we see as a chair?
