The Statue of Liberty off the coast of New Jersey is pretty badass, but the west coast of the US doesn’t really have anything similar. A couple cool bridges and the Space Needle, but that’s about it. One group wants to build Liberty-sized statue somewhere on the west coast, perhaps in Eugene, Oregon that would be just as spectacular, called the Statue of Providence.
Some figurative sculptors carve their artworks from unforgiving stone while others carefully morph the human form from soft blocks of clay, but artist Jonty Hurwitz begins with over a billion computer calculations before spending months considering how to materialize his warped ideas using perspex, steel, resin, or copper.
Tonight I finally finished this Heisenberg bust I’ve been working on for the last several months. I’m unemployed (laid off) and trying to make ends meet so I wanted to get it posted online before Christmas. The mold isn’t made yet, but I’m going to try my damnedest to finish the mold in time to ship a few orders in time for Christmas.
Monday was the 172nd birthday of the French sculptor, Auguste Rodin. His many works in stone have been considered genius as well as controversial. Take the time and check out some of his great works of art. Or, if you are in the Philadelphia area, stop by the Rodin Museum. ( http://www.rodinmuseum.org/ )
