Art form: 3-D
Medium: Iron and mixed media
Description of work: My concept for 2011 is based on kinetics and is inspired by my past sculpture. We are separated by technology in communication but we desire and need very human relationships. The human form is always the subject for me but it’s the action of the form that tells the story. Face Me is constructed of steel and ceramic or bronze. The body is made of steel and is all function with an industrial appearance. The face and hands are life like and are attached with an axis point that allows movement of 180 degrees. The movement is started by human touch but the hands and face are restricted from touching one another.
My photos, info from the Donahue’s ArtPrize page.
On the ArtPrize page, it shows the face looking down which is a much sadder posture than the day I saw it looking into the light.
