Here’s the latest from my sculpture class.
By changing how I work I’ve been please at the results in my artwork. We critique this piece last night in my sculpture class, and it was well recieved. The pictures don’t do it justice.I was working on a way to combine the graphic quality of two dimensional work with the space invading quality of three dimension work, while at the same time dealing with the idea of tension (real and personal).
Here’s the overall view:
The top part is 16 in x 16 inches and the bottom is 3 ft x 3 ft and overall 6 ft tall.
The suspended portion is a plaster mold of a back. On the inside it is smooth and the outside has the texture of the burlap strips I dipped in plaster to make the mold. It is like a cast for anyone who’s never seen it before.
This is acrylic on panel, plaster, stainless steel, and tempera and acrylic on plaster.
One of my classmates noticed that every part is foreshortened. Both of the images are, but also plaster mold that is suspended is also foreshortened when viewing it from the front.
