Reworked this interactive assemblage titled “Love Notes” from last semesters’ 3-D design class. I replaced the nylon cording with light gauge picture hanging wire and what a huge difference in tone. I love this piece so much and I can’t wait to show it off in Friday’s student showcase at #ccaurora . #oldladyartstudent#assemblage#percussion#interactivesculpture
Assemblage commission post #4 . 😄🐎I am now starting to develop the three spaces. When my client was in the studio she was very interested in a box of dominos that I had and wanted to use some in the piece. Dominos have the same basic structure as bricks. Bricks are used frequently in buildings to show strength and permanence banks, government buildings, hospitals often use them for this reason I am using them in this assemblage to show a strong solid foundation for his childhood. I placed them on the “floor” of each space. The bottom space has a nest and a glass heart for early childhood. The second space will have his artwork and the top space will be his parents wish for the future. I found a wooden cutout that spell. “Be awesome” as a suggestion. This project is ready for my clients feedback before I continue to have her approval. Next post will be her feedback and final instructions.
Vladimir Tatlin (1885-1953)
Vladimir Tatlin is often acknowledged as the father of Constructivism. This Ukrainian artist entered the Moscow avant-garde through painterly pursuits. However, that soon changed in 1913, during Tatlin’s travels to Berlin and Paris, where he met Pablo Picasso. The Cubist master left a great impression on him which was reflected in Tatlin’s future collage and assemblage works.
Tatlin combined various industrial materials to produce his “counter-reliefs”, more focused on the materials and spatial relationships, closer to abstraction and placed in the room corners with the aim of resembling architecture. The most important innovation that he announced was the use of space as the part of the construction. These pieces embodied artist’s motto “art into life”.
