So, lately has been a bit out of the box (hah, not being punny) for me lately in terms of the things I am making. I am in a sculpture class, and I am not really “talented” when it comes to the three-dimensional, although I do have a great respect for it, and a lot of artists who do have that talent and use it.
I have been building boxes, basically, out of all sorts of materials. First, we began by making a 20x20x20 box out of wood, including batons. Then, we made a 6x6x6 cube out of angle metal (Take that, Donald Judd!). Both were complicated in their own rights, but both rewarding.
Steel box, 1/8 inch angle bar; 6x6x6″ on Gallery Wall
Wood Crate, 1/4inch plywood; 20x20x20″ in Storage.
Now that I am learning how to do a multitude of things, more projects seem to be possible, especially considering many of my works now have turned into temporary installations.
I do not.
PS–I will legitimately update this later. For a progress report of how my work is going and review of shows I have seen, come back.
