Re: The Sculptor's Stand

Okay, new subject, and I hope some folks respond to it! I just saw a thread on LinkedIn that asked if Jeff Koons is a plagiarist. So I looked up his artwork and don't have an answer to THAT question, but my goodness, I sure am wondering about my own paintings (yes, paintings). There's one on his page called "Hulk Elvis" that looks like a goofy self-portrait I did years ago. http://www.jeffkoons.com/artwork/hulk-elvis That's his. This is mine: http://artfaces.com/profile/sappington/ (the pink one). I never considered mine to be "art" but Koons' "Hulk Elvis" isn't far off from mine. Maybe I'm a great painter and had no clue??? LOL. Thought it might be a fun discussion to start.

Re: The Sculptor's Stand

Ya, it looks similar alright but I like yours better and especially after seeing it's a self-portrait and reading the description. Very cute. Whymsical just like you are and with a big mouth that not only sings but burps. You may just have to do some more abstracts I say!

Re: The Sculptor's Stand

LOL, I figure if a piece needs a title or description to be understood, it isn't necessarily good art (just my opinion). Admittedly, there's a LOT of art out there that I need a title or description to understand. Maybe it's my own shortcoming, who knows?

That abstract was a class assignment in a workshop I took. I really liked how it turned out. I'm truly shocked to see something people consider "art" that looks so much like it!!

I haven't looked at that self-portrait in years, and hadn't read the description - except for just now - in a very long time too. It's amazing how well that self-portrait, and the description, depict me! LOL Glad you like it!

Re: The Sculptor's Stand

How are you using the fabric? What kind of fabric is it? How will you keep it from getting soaked with water? Just curious.

Re: The Sculptor's Stand

If you're having trouble uploading images, they may be too big. Try resizing them in a photo styling program so they're 72 dpi and no more than 6" on the longest side. Then they'll load quickly.

What kind of fabric do you think will withstand the weather outside? Sounds interesting! I hope you get pics online soon!

Re: The Sculptor's Stand

Interesting! I hope you can upload a clearer pic so I can see your armature. Is it soldered or welded together or what (the support for the chicken wire)? Resin over the fabric is a good idea. How big is it going to be? Thanks for sharing!

Re: The Sculptor's Stand

The armature was welded together using the arc welding machine. The height is 110cm * 60cm

Re: The Sculptor's Stand

Cool! My hubby just bought an arc welder. I'm hoping to either learn how to build some things with it, or get him to build them for me. Thanks for the info!

Re: The Sculptor's Stand

I'm busy being frustrated. My creative juices are SCREAMING right now, wanting to do several different projects at once, but I have a commission and an already-started piece to finish, a book to revise and send to a potential publisher, regular work to do, yard work, horses to ride, etc., and I don't have enough hours in my day to get to everything! But it's good to have creative juices running again - I've been so busy with the "normal" things of life, it's been hard to get excited about doing my creative work. Now if I could just get myself organized to the point where I can get both the creative AND the normal work done. Me, organized??? It's a losing cause!! But I keep trying.

I discovered a new (to me) material in a post here (high density foam used for making signs - look for the post titled "Lamb") that looks like fun to carve and can be used for high reliefs, etc. I really want to try some of it, but first I have to get this commission and this little bust done before I can play. I also want to play with painting - I've been itching to do that for quite a while, actually. No time, no TIME! I'll get there eventually!

What are the rest of you up to?
