Today one of my friends introduced me to the sculpture artist Daniel Wurtzel. His video titled Magic Carpet inspired this image, and potentially a series as well. His work is truly beautiful.
Here are some more random pictures from my current 365 that I thought deserved sharing. I am also going to be making a separate post of just a few extra self-portraits, and a big post of pictures from the Red River Gorge within the next few days, so keep checking back!
Don’t forget to become a fan on facebook for more updates and news!
And of course please remember to go vote for my portfolio and tell everyone that you know! You can vote once a day. I so appreciate each and every vote I can get, thank you for the support!
In my studio this summer we poured a 200 pound block of plaster and then gradually chiseled away at it to carve something showing motion. I chose to do a long jumper for my piece since I was a long jumper in high school and absolutely loved it.
This project was an insane amount of work. Despite being done for a full day, my hand is still extremely sore, swollen, and I am unable to bend or straighten it all the way. I was so frustrated while working on this piece, I almost wanted to just quit. I even had an arm break off while working (which I am actually very happy that it did). However, despite how much I hated it while working, t was by far the best critique (at least most positive) I have ever had, and I think it may be my favorite piece that I have ever made (other than photographs).
