wire armature

Yesterday I played around with wire armatures... why? because they allow more strength and planning with the figures, and best of all for me allow me to make standing figures which are also stronger during shipping.  Check out this youtube video of a bunch of clips of me during this process.

So today I went to the art store and spent lots and lots of money.  I am going to create this figure which will be coated in some sort of resin to alter the texture, the figure must be expressive so I am going to have to take the care and time to make a wire skeleton (armature) for her first, to be covered by her flesh so that she can support herself as she cannot sit or lie down, she must be upright and arms OUT!  I see her in my mind, but she will come into physical reality soon.  Im thinking about making several video clips and sewing them together to make a minimentary about the process creatively, that is not only the techniques but also the thoughts and ideas, and extreme satisfaction that come with creating.

Pete, what have you been up to?

I have been busy for like three days creating and painting and finishing the Rick Genest-inspired figure.
Photoshoot to follow his completion.

Leviticus 19:18

Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the LORD.

Hmm... love thy neighbor as what now? as you love yourself!  Wow, I think this is my new theme, I mean, it totally goes with all this metaphysical self-love information, plus what better thing to put out to the universe but self love which can be misunderstood as arrogance or stuck-upness, so I am going to word it like this: "Love Thyself" what do you think?
Im gonna put this slogan on everything starting with the last sculpture.

What better place than the portruding belly... the incubation of love for another can be the chamber for self love.

Is anyone registered there? They have a bunch of photos of Kenneth Cole holding one of my Butterfly People that I made in 2006 but they do not let you blow up images unless you pay for them :(
Oh well, here are the thmbnails from the site showing Kenneth Cole and Zuelema Griffin holding my lady Sculpture.

I made this in2007 cause I broke up with AB and was distraught.  Oh how glad I am to have learned that self love and acceptance are what really matter in life.
