I finished a sculpture at Tynemouth Longsands beach yesterday by dipping it in the sea water. I’ve more images and this photographic series and they will be available as original photographic prints in the near future. Have a great week and come back soon for the next blog post. Cheers!
Dear friends. I’m tempted to show you my new sculpture, which is part of my ongoing exploration of sports balls as sculpting materials. However I’ll hold on to that yet, and share this image of my first ever opened golf ball, which turned out to be pink inside! If you would like to see my organic golf ball sculpture, please read on this invite:
You are warmly invited to our “Open Studio Weekend” and an exhibition “Aggregate” on Friday evening, Nov 4th, and Saturday Nov 5th, 12-5, at ASC Studios Unit 3, Bow E3 3LT. Apart from the general refreshments, I’ll be serving snacks, good atmosphere and lots of news. This will be a unique chance to buy directly from my studio, and all sales will go towards shipping of my art and possibly myself to “London Calling” show in LA, OCCCA over Christmas! I look forward to your visit! Cheers.
What a day it was on Wednesday! I managed to get in to Angela Marmont Centre for Bio Diversity, Natural History Museum, London, which is specialized research centre open to public and professionals, to search, study, identify and talk to experts about anything you can think of from Natural History. Not always booking recommended. I was in need of seeing Bombylius Major. I love the name, sounds like a soldier fly, but in fact it is a Bee-Fly. The name might be misleading. It is a fly, that pretends to be a bee! It’s behaviour is fascinating. It lays eggs in bee and wasp nests, it pollinates flowers with it’s elongated nose and it hates cold. It can wrap up it’s wings around to keep warm. So much more to tell, but instead, I present to you, my own photos of the specimen. Cheers and remember, not all that looks like a bee, is a bee! Don’t kill it.
I became an art surgeon for the day. I was testing what happens when I cast some grapes in plaster. It was coming out easier than the previous materials I used. I didn’t expect to have so much fun excavating it from the setting. Watching it back makes me giggly for some reason. It is disgusting and organically beautiful at the same time.
Photo diary of today, 17.3.2011:Yes, I’ve run out of tennis balls today! It’s ok, as I finished covering my 3rd, biggest wooden board. It has just over 1 metre across, and I can’t wait to start filling up the gaps tomorrow. Here is a photo from today.
As promised, I’d like to report back with a bit more detail, about the Hartberg Museum Exhibition- Recycled Art. The main reason, why the Symposium took place, was to make the conceptual art proposals for the coming Recycling Art Festival and to show the people in Hartberg and its surroundings, that recycling materials can be fun. The slogan “Trash-Chance-Idea” and all about the passing of time, were our guide lines. Each of the Artists and Designers approached the topic in a different way. We became a strong, lively group, getting on very well together. We were – Zara Alexandrova, Chris Gossington, Manuela Fritz, Erki Kasemets, Margit Klammer, Christian Kammerhofer, Hertha Wendelin Kovacs, Miss Lata, Iveta Laure, Evelyn Loschy, Wolfgang Luh, Baiba Osite, Pernilla Philip, Kiril Prashkov, Daniela Riedl, Liga Sakse, Dieter Serfas, Luca Zupelli and I, Silvia Krupinska. I need to mention and say thank you to Margit Nohrer and Manuela Fritz, who were the organisers. The journalists from Radio Hartberg made during the private view this short video and here are their photos.
I had a wonderful time in the city of Hartberg, which charmed me so much; I definitely want to go back in a couple years for the Recycling Art Festival. I miss the people and the food already!
Here is the fully recycled hero ‘Animal’ with its fully recycled ‘Food Tray’ and behind it, its ‘Poo Tray’ which is all, yes again, made from all-recycled materials found in local Ecopark. (All rights reserved.)
Please join us at our special event of art and design and so much more- Spit and Scrub. It’s our open studio weekend at the ASC Bow studios on Empson Street, E3 3LT on 17th, 18th & 19th September. Ideal opportunity to buy affordable art and meet us, the artists. We’re donating 10% from all sales to a local charity- Bromley By Bow Centre.
Why don’t you come for a chat to my studio(4)?
I’m looking forward to seeing you! Drop me a line or send me a text if you want my full attention, we can arrange the time. Or simply just turn up. Cheers x
Do you know that feeling, when you sit in your studio, after washing the floor, arranging the wall of your art again, getting ready for an open weekend (more about that later), and just sitting in a chair listening to Radio 4 (yes, I know) and staring in the the ceiling, in pure bliss of being so lucky to have such a space for storing your art ?! The temple of my creation. And then, there it is. ‘My Altar’ 2010 was created. An installation, one of many, that I set up rearanging stuff.
I keep coming back to this picture of my gradmother, back in Slovakia. The power behind it is wordly for me. And I keep daydreaming.
