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.
I am pleased to announce that my abstract figurative sculpture “Haute Couture II” has been accepted for the 2016 International Exhibition FASHION, hosted byThe Studio Door. Juror Gilbert E. Meza, Indigo Salon (Previously Nordstrom Fashion Show Specialist) selected 30 artworks by 16 artists for the exhibition out of over 100 entries.
The Opening Reception is Saturday March 5, 2016 from 6 PM – 9 PM at The Studio Door, 3750 30th Street, San Diego, CA 92104. The show runs through March 27, 2016.
Haute Couture Sculpture
“Haute Couture II” vamps her edgy and strong high fashion with elegance. The sculpture is seven feet tall and made of steel mesh – part of my fashion series of sculptures. The hard steel construction allows for clean, sharp lines. She is pictured here at in my avocado grove at the San Diego Artist Retreat in Fallbrook, CA.
The sculpture is the radiant color of sunshine standing out in high contrast from the landscape behind.
Three additional life-size mesh sculptures are on exhibit at the San Diego Botanic Garden, Encinitas, CA in the 2015 Sculpture in the Garden Exhibition. My “She is Shotokan” sculpture has been accepted for the 2016 Exhibition to be installed late April/early May.
Haute Couture Fashion
Haute couture, French for “high sewing” or “high dressmaking” or “high fashion”, refers to the creation of exclusive custom-fitted clothing. Haute couture is high end fashion that is constructed by hand from start to finish, made from high quality, expensive, often unusual fabric and sewn with extreme attention to detail and finished by the most experienced and capable sewers, often using time-consuming, hand-executed techniques.
