Found Object Sculpture

found metal wire and wood

This piece was for an assignment for a class at Worcester Art Museum, in which we had to make a sculpture from found objects.
Of course the concept has been around forever, but I still like the simplicity of the resulting piece.

The line of the metal actually feels like one of my own gesture drawings. Maybe that's what attracted me to it in the first place.

For those who are curious, the wood base was also found and the holes in which the wire fits were pre-existing. The metal piece is a fragment from a cage that goes around the root ball of a tree.

more than just a two dimensional gal

I've been busy this winter with a couple of classes at Worcester Art Museum that deal with three dimensional art.

In this clay piece I was trying to make a hybrid of sorts between the classical sculptured female figure and the expressionistic manner in which I tend to draw the human form.

She is about 16" high.

When one door shuts, break the freakin' window

mixed media on paper

I hate to let so much time go between posts, but it has been kind of a stressful time lately.

The space I rent to paint in, which gives this blog it's name, has become unbearable with lack of heat and general bad behavior by the greedy landlord. Hopefully, a resolution is not too far off.

Now, back to what matters: Art, or as we say here is Massachusetts, Ahhhht.

This subdued piece is one from another fine class with Christine Cross at Worcester Art Museum. It makes me think of windows in a building or a card game we played as kids, "Concentration".
