These three sculptures were for my Sculptural Forms class with Genna Watson. I hope you find some humor in them.
This collection of books was based on an assignment which required a sculpture that seemed to have a purpose but actually was a useless item. These books, although hard to see here, are permanently glued to the wooden structure containing it- rendering the collection of books as a useless whole... Hah! Stupid books!
We had to create a hanging piece... I wanted the negative space around the dunce hat and stool to transform and become as much a part of the sculpture as the actual tangible objects themselves. Also, I think I make a great dunce.
This is Cletus in Art History class reading about ancient vases and all that other bullshit.
Did you know that if you eat a polar bear's liver you die from an overdose of vitamin A? Its true!
