I love to work with the just right colors in my work. If that means I need to make them myself… so be it! Here is my making some light green watercolor paint.
3D technology gives me the possibility to replicate and reprint the same sculpture in different sizes and colors. I’ve been pouring acrylics to get unique skins, made a display case on solitude with these frogs and now I’m working on the differences in unity.
I’m trying to use the same shape to communicate in different ways by just using color.
Two more paintings in my 1/2 creature contrast series. For finished paintings click here.
The colours, shapes and the background all work together to form a composition full of contrast. Instead of having a natural camouflage in their habitat, these creatures have nowhere to hide. They catch the eye but the combination of techniques and the clean solid background lets you focus on their texture.
A category of paintings will be added to my work. More to follow soon!
I'm making a large, one of, version of my Gonudichu arbore. It will be completed in water paint, pencil and ink.
So I finally found some time to work out the idea behind my 3D printed frog-creatures.
I used them as a base for a poured acrylics skin. I will continue this as a series of different sizes and colors including a collection in a display case.
Pictures of the new exhibition are to be found here.
3D printing isn’t the future anymore, it’s here, now. If you need a high resolution print of the Venus of Milo, it’s just a click away. But with the ease that comes with the new technology, people will more easily lose originality as well.
The creative mind of the individual is what makes us unique, that’s why I made this piece.
I’ve made a choice to only make ”one-of” sculptures, I’m not using or making moulds. I can make more sculptures of the same creature, but they will always look different. With this piece, I’m not trying to simulate a version of my previous work, but to show a different way of looking at things.
I just finished some new drawings. During the next weeks, I will keep posting new ones on the drawings page on my website.
So I’m quite busy printing my frogs, doing some Photoshop, drawing and designing some new creatures and sculpting a Reefcrawler or two.
To be continued…
