March 9th. Bubble wrap and go with the flow.

This will be the next wax to go into bronze, (‘Flow’ is the working title) I’m taking these shots to refer to when I’ve got to reconstruct it in the bronze. It’s a lying figure, you can just see a head, hands and the odd foot amidst the shapes….P_20150309_101604

Heres an arm, a sketch.  I doubt this will go into bronze .. . Inspired believe it or not by the likes of Aldo Rossi, and his Italian Architect friends from the 70’s and 80’s calling themselves the ‘Tendenza’.

Actually looking at it there’s a bit of De Chirico too , never a bad thing.

quick studio shot..


The two guys on the floor, remind me of the trio of figures gathered in the foreground on the right of Piero’s “Flagelation of Christ’ a tip top favourite.. i’ll put an image in of it when I find one!


Infact inspired by that idea I went on to construct these , a trio.. in need of alot more attention.  There’s something nice about the shared focus of attention , witness’s to something that maybe they are not comfortable with witnessing, maybe they should do something.. but maybe its easier to blend in .P_20150115_114545


Heres the big guy, Started last week, (I illustrated his construction) I’ve now started to cut and add…at the moment I want there to be a horizontal movement form left to right, passing through him..


I’ve decided to develop the ‘Bubble Wrap’ men, these are a metre high and in bronze, (about to be shown in The Melbourne show Australia).



Made a life size one, with bags hanging off him..I shudder at the casting effort..



Here are some of the linear cut out sculptures cast into bronze. A friend at the studio Chris Summerfield., called them ‘Fossilized drawings’ I like that.

I was thinking that they were maybe vitrified drawings, the subject doesn’t seem to be too overt, which is good..

This is an arm, another friend at the studio Sian Okeeffe , thought the hand looked like a skull, I liked that too.

I decided to use an ashen – grey patina.  I like the drips and dribbles the cutting away of the wax has caused. I also like the more abstract supports, the drawn language seems to develop through them.
