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…
A new way of working that coexists with the old way.
I’ll post an update next week on this, but this is the first rough print of a sculpture I scanned.
