Working With my Hands

These past few days of studio time have been a different experience for me. When I strictly did photo, I was always creating miniature sets and objects in order to photograph. Since the Spring of 2018, I feel that I have not worked with my hands very much at all. Most of the work I have done has been going out and searching for items that can be appropriated into my work. Since last week I have been working on a small “Native American” totem figure. It’s been an interesting ride, to say the least. I have never sculpted anything figural before. Come to think of it, I don’t think I have ever sculpted anything in an additive manner. The piece has been totally fabricated using a large cardboard tube, tin foil, painter’s tape, and paper pulp. The entire piece, unlike my other found objects, has been totally crafted by my hand. If the piece works, it will add a new angle to my series and may even answer some questions from it’s previous state.
