Here is the sketch of the week.
I do like subjects with a strong chiaro-scuro.
Here are some Fotos of the Job I did this days.
I helped the artist Stürmer-Alex to restaurate some of her colourful outstanding sculptures.
In this selfie, restaurator and object both seem fable characters.
I had to wear a mask because the materia i was working with are really toxic.
Nudes are some of my favourite artistic subjects
Both the inspiring pictures were token from the web. This drawings are interpretations of the subject.
While I saw the originals I felt a sence of anxiety
This drawing is made out of pencils
the subject was taken from the web
This week my family from Italy camed to visit me for a few days.
This picture was made in front of one graffiti of the East side gallery together with my cousin, brother and sister
This Fotos shows how to make face molds out of living models.
First Step: I prepared a soft plane were the Model could lay on, in order to have her face lying. I covered the soft sheets with a tarpaulin of plastic to avoid the stikking of the plaster to the cloth.
Step 2: The model had to spread cream all over her face in order to avoid the stikking of the plaster to her hair
Step 3: A pillow made by plastic and cloth was disposed all around the models face because all the undercuts had to be covered
Step 4: I covered the models face with like cream dense plaster startig form the highest points and keeping care to not cover her nostrils
Step 5: After I finished to dispose a layer of 2-3 cm of plaster all over the face, I flattened the surface of the mold with a spatula. In this foto I am starting to pull off the mold of the models face by ripplyng it slowly
Step 6: The mold is pulled off from the models face and it’s almost ready for casting out of it the kopy of the model’s face. The nostrils have to be mold on it with clay
Starting from the 30th of April, I participated for three days at the Holyschnitzsymposium in Thale 2014th, organized by the Winter family of Neinstedt.
This chainsawcarving event took place together with the Walpurgisnacht week, which is the old traditional german festivity of the witches.
This chainsaw carving is called Brynhild. I carved it in two and a half day of work.
Here’s a panorama of the opposite and main side where the most carvers except me were working.
This is a view of my working area. You can see the original wood trunck on which I carved out my sculpture.
Today I started the second sculpture course in Riparbello together with the sculptor Heinz Mack.
The course will take one week and at the end each student will take his own finished piece at home.
Here’s a view on the students at work ;P
This is a selfy with my students working on the background 🙂
I wish you all a happy easter party with your family and friends 🙂
This is a picture we took this evening.
The whole family Beiwinkel, Bruske, Toccafondi, Santini and Carusi is reunited under the same roof with the exeption of one person.
Find out who is the intruder! 😛
