"Redwall" by E Dominguez
For my project I will create a dinner set with different shapes. I am thinking to make it swirly with a nice definition on the body. My theme will be "Different Emotions" (happy, sad, excitement, and nervous). I am going to use clay for my dinner set and hoping that I will get to use them in the future.
Tim Noble and Sue Webster have been working together for years, and they specialize in making elaborate shadow art out of trash. I hope to emulate this in this half of the semester, it will be difficult and to be honest, I'd be shocked if I come close to anything that resembles their work. I am going to give it the ol college try though.
For the final few projects, I would like to make something more natural and organic...plant like. I think it will be interesting to use a clay medium to achieve this. Dale Chihuly makes organic shapes/plants out of glass, with bright vibrant colors. He has many installation pieces, several in Washington. His work is very beautiful.
"Chihuly began the series with Lino Tagliapietra as an homage to Italian Art Deco vases he saw on a trip to Venice. He loved the aesthetic and symmetry of the vases; however, the artworks quickly lost their symmetry and became bolder and brighter."
I chose two of Berninis sculptures the fountain of four rivers and the fountain about Poseidon . Both are made of marble and portray multiple stories. Bernini is known for doing dramatic, theatrical situations and expressions as well as intricate details and mythological or religious figures. My plan for my sculptures modeled after him are to take a Greek mythical God and make a fountain scheme of creature and figures that are involved in the gods story.
For my projects I am going to do sculptures of soft material objects that go hand in hand with idea of psychology and regarding the mind. (Autism, depression, poverty, and the brain itself). I am going to use the plaster strips that we used to make the body part impressions based off of Segal, to cover newspaper which will be used to create my forms.
Using the works of Antony Gormley for inspiration my sculpture serious would focus on a theme of human silhouettes through a non-human medium. Ideally it would be the arrangement of different polygonal structures to convey a human structure or action.
