[picture taken by Buddy Quinn, my works are the testicles and the red tipped tools]
I haven't updated this in a while and I figured a picture of open house was the best way to get back on the wagon. As you can see I have a new set of tools with red furry tips. I made them so the fur just slips off.
My testicle piece is kind of my current pride and joy. The assignment was on the body physical and I can never abandon the ideas of silly and gross at the same time. So there you have it.
Things coming up you should be stoked about:
Senior thesis show Takers and Leavers, April 27, 301 Gallery. [This is one of my friend's shows, he and his peers are working hard for it, so be as pumped as I am!]
They Came and Never Returned: Rated B, May 2, The Bear Gallery. [This is a group show involving Brittanny Handiboe, Kyle Rowe, Merriweather McCarty, Emily Fung, Ashley McGonagle, Liz O'Toole, and myself. Obviously, the show is based on B genre horror movies. GO AND INVITE THE WORLD TO COME WITH YOU!]
From top to bottom: plaster mold, handmade paper cast, cement cast, rubber cast, and wax cast.
I have an affinity for sharp things, not because they are dangerous though. I think there's something really interesting about the way a knife or sharp object looks. Knives/sharp objects are no-nonsense, generally they get things done. They are direct, honest. I find comfort in that.
I never liked master copies. More than that, I never liked drawing the human body. I really loved the both this semester and I'm glad because I now officially appreciate John Singer Sargent more than I thought I ever would. I also appreciate the human figure much, much more than before.This is a copy of the sketch of Atlas and the Hesperides.
Oh have I mentioned that I am feverishly in love with pastels? Because I can't get enough.
