Ik ontdekte net het prachtige werk van taxidermist/kunstenaar Polly Morgan. Fragiel en delicaat. http://pollymorgan.co.uk/
In her own words, "taking the animal out of context and turning it into a piece of appreciated ornament. I would say her works celebrate the life and death of those animals that she has chosen to work on."
De dieren zijn alle slachtoffers van het verkeer, of gestorven dieren van bevriende vogelliefhebbers...
I found this beautiful book last week in a second hand bookshop: 'Anatomie voor de kunstenaar', by Jeno Barcsay (1900, Katona - 1988, Budapest). Barcsay was a professor at the academy of Budapest. Very nice drawings - perfect for a figurative sculptor like me!! So last Sunday I spend all afternoon studying the muscles of the back. He made it all look very clear...
This is a very nice picture , showing how the muscles work underneath the skin. Perfect drawings for a sculptor working with the human body.
I'm still working on a huge sculpture 'battle of the Remains III', which I will make in white Covelano marble. The back is very important in this work, so pictures like this are like jewellery for me.
Work in progress, Thoughts, ideas with no particular shape, exhibition setups and photos of openings, nice visits to interesting colleagues and scientists...
