Walk #2 – 3D canvas

Today I received the canvas for this 3D painting, this is a smaller object so I thing is going to be more challenging to paint over it.

AWTA-2

Reflection:

For this piece I decided to go with the symmetric model because I realised that this kind of shapes are ambiguous, they only look symmetric if you look at them from an specific angle and I think this feature will enable me to play with this tension once I start to paint over it.

Walk #2 – process

Today I started the printing of the second piece of the “a walk through ambiguity” series, It the beginning I had a problem with the printer (operator problem) and I ended up giving birth to a “small canvas alike premature deform piece”.

Later Matt helped me with the problem and now I have to wait until Monday to stop worrying about the printing process.
AWTA#2-1

Reflection:

Even the 3D printing failures are interesting objects, I guess that it has something to do with the fact that they are unique plastic objects.

Chris Dorosz

He is a Canadian artist that explores dripping as a way to create three dimensional representations involving humans. He is also interested in Virtual reality.

My interest:

For me is interesting to see hoy painting can be projected towards the “third dimension”, I have to say I don’t particularly like the “childish” effect of the representation in earlier work (I have only seen low res pictures) and I`m also concern about the visual “weight” of the acrylic plaques. However, his latest work is amazing, he has been able to create really cool 3D environments.

Anthony Caro

He was an English Abstract Expressionist sculptor.

My interest:

I really like the way he changed the way sculptures are viewed, not over a counter or a pedestal, but from the flor, as if they are an active part of your surroundings, I’m also interested in the way he constructs the narrative, it is like you can approach the piece from different angles, there is no main feature, it is more like you are entering an experience.

Peter Lanyon

He was a British painter and sculptor, he had interest in abstract expressionism, he was really influenced by Ben Nicholson, Barbara Hepworth and Naum Gabo. He described some of his later works as ‘experiments in space to establish the illusion and the content of space in painting’

My interest:

I really like the possibility of approaching a painting from different angles, it changes the way one can “read” the piece of art, Also the concept of an hybrid between painting and sculpture.
