Back to the blog. Chicken Wire

my new best friend! chicken wire.

so fun…

Our new project for foundations, our final for the semester!!! yay!! is to build a wearable sculpture out of linear material.

After researching how and what to make I decided on my old favorite… hands. I love them, im a bit obsessed. I enjoy drawing them and painting them and now I have the opportunity to sculpt them. I was unsuccessful at cold connections and I am terrified of hot connections so I will be using chicken wire, and mold them instead. I want to play up the masculine and feminine sides of hands. I like the idea of playing up the male and female side, and use separate material for both, so you can tell the difference between the two. I will use rice paper, or very sheer linen to cover them, but still being able to see the under workings of the wire. I will then paint details on the fabric or paper, adding lines and fingernails, fingerprints, and folds. I like to be more technical and realistic as opposed to gestural, so my goal is to make these sculptures as realistic as possible. After a few days of worrying about school and money and almost deciding on quitting art school.. I have decided that its something I need to do for myself and to give it 100% of my attention and do it well. So I am now more then ever determined to do my best and see what I can accomplish.

Bed Nook

        

       

                        

I have always wanted my bed in a nook, in hopes of getting a new apartment soon all I can ask for is that it has a nook so I can put my bed or something comfy in it. I would spend hours in there.
