Eleven Images: Featured Pieces of the Week

I decided to make a new feature for the art blog. Each week I will spot-light a different work that is for sale and not currently on exhibit. This summer and fall is shaping up to be pretty busy with exhibition. Also, with the Art on Eight show having come down, now, I am suddenly with a glut again of work back in my two-bedroom apartment. With that in mind, I will feature different pieces here each week. Some of these will be discounted from what I have asked when the works were on exhibit.

This week’s featured piece is “Body at Rest” I love his little guy so much, and I’d like him to have a home.

Please email inquiries or offers to eaton.robert@gmail.com (see the about section for details). As I said earlier, I have a whole lot of work that has recently come back to me. The following works were all included in The Art on Eight show. The show was put on by the New York State Office of Mental Health to spotlight the art work of artists who receive services through the Office of Mental Health. (Some of the previous show have been included in OMH’s Art on Eight Flickr gallery.

 

Several of the small works together that were recently in the show.

Works in 3D

I don’t do a lot of sculpture, it’s not my forté, 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.

Sculpture

I have not done nearly so many three-dimensional pieces as sketches and paintings. Most were lost or damaged as I moved around as an adult. Still, I have a few notable pieces. Most of these were made over the past few years.

Wire and plaster. Interpretation of an ancient Greek Theatrical Mask






The next couple images are of a prop I made for a friend’s play. It is a pregnant virgin Mary Statuette.
