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.

Grape Extraction Sculpture and plasticine balls, installation idea for Organicities.

As Organicities approaches in 2 weeks I’m considering how to refresh the installation of my sculptures, especially those that are longing their “natural” environment. To be more specific, I’m talking about “From the Bottom of the Sea Sculptures“. To  make it feel more comfortable, and “like at home” I’m having a go at testing it’s unfinished cousin, plaster ball, immersed in water. There might be even special guests joining, it would be VIF to be precise. To find out more about them, pop in to Debut Contemporary on Saturday15th October 12-5. If you would like to read the press release click here, or for e-flyer click here.

Experiments with the installation of From the Bottom of the Sea Sculpture.

Testing of an unfinished plaster ball in water, is making me think that VIF guests will be coming in! You'll be sure to find out their names on 15.10.11, in Debut Contemporary.

My new sculpting material, 120 golf balls. And the number is increasing...do you have any spare?

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.

Silvia Krupinska holding her From the Bottom of the Sea sculpture, Margate, 16.4.2011 01 Hi dear followers. I can’t wait to share these photos from yesterday’s trip to Margate. We went to see the opening of  Turner Contemporary Gallery, which turned out amazingly, but I wasn’t expecting anything else, as I’d been to preview the gallery some time ago. To top up and make the day even more useful, the car was loaded fully with not just our lunch, but my sculptures too. I brought Green and Red Moon Transition Sculptures and four From the Bottom of the Sea plaster sculptures to play with on the beach and make some sandy installations. I have a couple of videos from the day too. Please visit my youtube channel for a full selection. I hope you’ll enjoy looking at these temporary installations. Thanks. Silvia.

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.

From muddy colour to white sealing coat and then to green, was my mission today. The sculpture isn’t completely done, but on the way.

Today, I’m asking my self a question as I put my head next to my freshly mudded 3D painting. How does it feel today? Let’s see, till the mud dries! The sea might settle by then. (personal note)

I have a big sack of tennis balls. Precisely 205. I have been collecting them over last 6 weeks. They all have been donated by my local tennis centres, sport centres. I would like to say thank you to the kind people working at Score Centre, in Leyton especially Christian, who is one of the tennis coaches there and big thank you to Mr. Gerald Cox at Aldersbrook Lawn Tennis Club in Wanstead.

These balls are a source of sculpting material for me. I have some plans to use them in my coming projects, and as this is very much work in progress, I think the photos from my studio, and one or two images of the balls would be good to show. I’ll keep you updated on my development with these, but it’s a little secret for the time being. Do come back for more later.

Dear readers and followers. Thank you for your support in 2010 and I’m looking forward to creating many more articles for the new year. Let’s make it a great one! Silvia
