The final collection of images for this weeks El Anatsui kick about. For this bunch I popped the artwork into an art placer app for scale and grandiose.
Some more mosaic tapestries created from tinfoil leftover from a steak pie and some coloured markers for this weeks El Anatsui Kick About over on Red’s Kingdom.
This weeks Kick About over on Red’s Kingdom is the incandescent tapestries of El Anatsui. What you are looking at here is the tinfoil leftover from a steak pie, coloured with multicolored markers, photographed, warped and collaged together in photoshop to mimic El Anatsui’s illuminating repurposed sculptures.
A third set of filament shapes and form in response to Naum Gabo’s – Linear Construction No.2. It is hard not to compare Gabo’s stream of lines and curves to some thing organically formed like the bizzare growing of a certain jelly ear mushroom (Auricularia auricula-judae) or the rimmed Turkey tail (Trametes versicolor)
A second crop of altered CGI renders consisting of filaments of fabric for this weeks Naum Gabo Kick About on Red’s Kingdom. One thing so compelling about Gabo’s vessels is the amount of depth in relation to how transparent and delicate certain parts are. You can always feel where the fingers of this craftsman spent the most time making and altering. With my own stream of offerings, things turned up a notch when I started to duplicate the shapes on top of each other, tinkering with its blending of counterparts to provide the depth that I craved.
This weeks Kick About of creative outputs from artists of all stripes is the sculptural work of Naum Gabo – Linear Construction No.2. I have never seen Gabo’s structural filaments before but the meandering weaves of fabric intertwined into curves provides such depth and movement I was fascinated by the displays. I tried to emanate the same flow of fabric with a disused project that otherwise would never see the light of day. These CGI rendered materials – originally hats, were warped, blended and mended back together in light of Gabo’s intricate meshes. I created a bunch more models of peculiar looking shapes for this prompt but not particularly liking how the material looked on those offerings – as getting those delicate weaves of fabric through to the renders provide difficult, I decided to only use a couple of those shapes and instead rely on injecting some life in a otherwise dead project.
