Atlas Tripping – Animated Sculpture

•June 8, 2015 • Leave a Comment

Here is a small animation of a sculpture in progress, I still need to add the patina which should make it easier to see. Right now the overall black makes it hard to see and harder to photograph.The animation is to give a better sense of the actual shape of the figure.

Reflecting on Media

•April 21, 2015 • Leave a Comment

I am enjoying making prints with drypoint, not just to create an multiple image but to use the qualities of the print itself. Deep gouges giving a rich velvety line and deep blacks, delicate hen-scratches for detail. Letting the media show itself as an integral part of the work(very fashionable when I was in school), and I am seeing a trend in thought away from a minimalist approach, not that you can see it so much in this image but the mind does not always travel the same path as the hands.
