A third and final set of offerings for this weeks Kick About over on Red’s Kingdom, the muse being the uncanny grandiose art of Christo & Jeanne- Cluade. This bunch in particular focussing in on the transformative light that finally appeared through the clouds, as well as a sprinkling of water droplets that clung to the clingfilm.
A second set of offerings for this weeks Kick About over on Red’s Kingdom the afflatus being the otherworldly art of Christo & Jeanne- Cluade. Created from swirling clingfilm around cuttings of twigs, this set is starting to get into the more minute details of the miniature dioramas, observing how the aloof sunshine transformed the composition.
This weeks Kick About over on Red’s Kingdom is the perplexing art of Christo & Jeanne- Cluade. I wanted to make a miniature version of Christo & Jeanne- Cluade’s impressive uncanny installation art, but attempt to make it look larger as if I had the resources to produce something of that scale. So I did some deadheading of branches and flora around my garden, wrapped clingfilm around them and stuck the encapsulated snipings into styrofoam to keep them steady as I photographed the results. I loved how in certain shots of Christo & Claude’s pieces the sun shone through – it reminds me of poppy seed pods or Chinese lanterns. As I was taking photos, in spurts the sun broke through the clouds of the dreary sky and lit the tombs of these plants in spots and lines, another treat was after a slight sprinkling of rain, which made me focus more on the intrinsics of the composition rather than its initial scale”
