So over the past week I’ve been looking at figure sculptures. In particular Marisol Escobar’s work has been quite eye catching. The blocky undefined style with abstracted features makes these sculptures a bit unnerving, but extremely fascinating. I have been taking inspiration from Marisol’s sculptures as I’ve been working on a piece myself, trying to incorporate her bare-bones structures while adding a few of my own ideas.
So I grabbed a big piece of pine and whatever I could find in the wood shop scrap bin and have been building a figure that resembles my roommate Adam… but not in a creepy way. I haven’t finished the piece yet as I’ve been working on gathering accessories to better distinguish Adam as a character: glasses, shoes etc.
However, this far down the production line I’m pretty satisfied with what I have and with a bit more grooming its going to turn out great.
