Starting and finishing

April 3, 2020

While I currently have five ongoing pieces, I managed to finish one this morning. That gave me a reason to start another. The finished piece incoporates a couple of castings from a few years back. I was never really happy with the original sculpting, but at the time, I was eager to get hands on experience with mold making and casting. A lot of my earlier castings have ended up in a box, taking up space, so now the intention is to “rediscover” them into new pieces.  These castings were cut apart and reassembled and resculpted with Magic Sculpt. Also layered in are some salvaged pieces of wood, a magazine image, and paint. 

The new piece will include many of the elements that I’m currently using; collage, paint, and at least one cast object. The foundation is this series of salvaged boards glued together. The nails are existing from whatever these were previously used for. As soon as the glue dries, I’ll be able to move on to the next step. I have a pretty clear concept on this one but things always seem to take a left turn on their own sometimes.
