I was nominated today on Facebook by Christina Ilene Thomas for the 5/5/5 art challenge which consists of:
5 artworks/ over 5 days/ nominating another artist each day
Many thanks to Christina for nominating me.
Today, on Day 1, I nominate the accomplished sculptor, Gilda Bronzé. Her work is wonderfully complicated and far reaching.
FractAlien Series Sculpture – Day 1
I’m sharing today, for Day 1, the latest sculpture from my FractAlien Series “FractAlien Rescue”.
The female FractAlien is on her way up to rescue the male FractAlien who has
gotten himself in a bind. The sculptures are made of steel mesh using a process of various material layers and outdoor paint to seal the artwork.
The figures are mounted on a piece of wildfire burned Manzanita bush I found in the chaparral area around my avocado ranch.
The Manzanita is mounted in a base of concrete made to look like stone or burnt earth. The figures are flame colored and the shadows the figures cast are dark, adding to the urgent and burnt wildfire theme.
The sculpture is shown here poolside at the San Diego Artist Retreat.
More of the sculptures from this series can be viewed at FineArtSculpt.com.
