I would like to thank everyone who helped make yesterday one of the greatest birthdays I have ever had. My third critique went fairly well in preparation for my senior thesis show. "Wood Whispers" was not only honored by receiving the Student's Choice award for Sculpture, but was also purchased to be apart of the Student Union's Permanent Collection. What a great birthday surprise! Congratulations to all my friends and peers who were also awarded and chosen to be apart of the 2011 Art Expo. Great show everyone!
This is my first blog in history! How exciting! I hope to actively use this blog to keep you all updated on what I am working on in the studio. Right now I am in the process of completing a body of work for my B.F.A. show in April. I am making four to five life-size figures out of clay and other materials based off of some of my past romantic experiences. Each figure will take on the role of a specific fictional character from literature such as the Big Bad Wolf, Pinocchio, the Tin Man, and the Mad Hatter.
I'm afraid I do not want to reveal too much right now, since I do not what to spoil the show. But I will try my best to keep up with this blog, so that you may better understand my work process and can observe my general progress before install on April 20th. Here are a few more photos to leave you with until my next post. Time to get back in the studio!
