Works in 3D

I don’t do a lot of sculpture, it’s not my fort√©, but I have done a couple that were noteworthy.

Greek Tragedy Mask

I took a course, acting methods, with Dr. Kenneth Krauss. We needed to make a Greek mask for a reading of classic Greek tragedy. This is what I came up with.

Pregnant Virgin Mary

A friend, Sandi Dollinger, asked me to create a prop for her play, “Hap’y Birthday Greta Garbo,” I made a wire armature, and used plaster of paris. She was very happy with what I produced, and honestly I was too. It’s a pretty unique piece of art. It also survived being knocked off a table during several rehearsals.

I made this for an even I was DJ-ing. Much to heavy to wear during my set (but I did wear it during most of the night). It is based on the Jim Henson created characters the Skeksis, in the movie “The Dark Crystal”

Horror-skeksis, plaster, wire, cloth, oil paint, with the artist.

My Lost Children

Many, many of my works of art were damaged or lost over the years. In this post, when I am able to recover an image of a piece of art I created that was lost or destroyed, I will post it here.

Oil on Canvas, met a bad end.

A lot of my work has been lost or destroyed, or simply left and neglected. This particular work is significant, because it was destroyed so dramatically. I managed to anger a past partner to a degree she attacked it with a kitchen knife while it was still drying on the easel. C’est la vie.

Abstract sculpture

If you look between the candelabra, and the edge of the dresser, there’s a white abstract sculpture made out of pottery that didn’t survive being fired (to the far right, it looks like a skeletal hand). The piece is clay, and some kind of glue. I made it in an independent study art class. It’s a “found object” sculpture. By the time I moved out of my parent’s house, it was broken and battered in so many places I threw it out, rather than take it with me.¬† The image was taken on a Pentax 35mm SLR that was the camera I used when I took photography in high school
