Live | Sonnenzimmer - Sonnenzimmer The Throne of the Third Heaven of the Nations' Millennium General Assembly by James Hampton Gallery Label "Where there is no vision, the people perish" — Proverbs 29:18 (King James Version) posted on the wall of Hampton's garage James Hampton's entire artistic output is this single work which he called The Throne of the Third Heaven of the Nations' Millennium General Assembly. Hampton worked for more than fourteen years on his masterwork in a rented garage, transforming its drab interior into a heavenly vision, as he prepared for the return of Christ to earth. Hampton's full creation consists of 180 components—only a portion of which are on view. Hampton's intricate, large-scale design for The Throne derives coherence from parallel rows of constructions, densely packed on several levels. Massive wings, suggesting angels, sprout from most components; framed tablets line the walls, and crowns and other complex foil decorations fill every available space of the assemblage. Exhibition Label, Smithsonian American Art Museum, 2006

Mr CUP : Inspiration . Creation . Emotion / The work, the shop & the blog of Fabien Barral CayceZavaglia Work From "Pacific Rim" In the second half of 2011 I had the incredible opportunity to work on Guillermo Del Toro's "Pacific Rim". I spent several months doing nothing but sculpting giant monsters all day, and was able to design/sculpt one of the guys that reached the screen, the one called Leatherback. I also co-designed the baby Kaiju along with Francisco Ruiz Velasco and Guy Davis. And I sculpted maquettes for two Guy Davis-designed creatures, Slattern and Otachi. Molding and casting of the Kaiju maquettes were done by Steve Newburn, Sean Sansom and Jason Detheridge, who were part of the team that built the incredible looking, on-set Kaiju organs for the movie.

Katsushika Hokusai - The complete works Russell Mills SCULPTURE Welcome to the Sculpture pages! Click on the icons to enlarge the image and read a little about it. Click on the little 'boxes' icon just to the right of the little 'camera' icon above the image to enlarge it. These Art galleries are a constant work in progress. There may be a little redundancy across the galleries as some images belong in more than one category. Sculpture is a far more physically demanding process. The majority of the work in my career as a sculptor has been the creation of appliances for various old age and character makeups of which, unfortunately I have taken no photographs.

The Popovy Sisters – fantastic doll creations by Elena and Ekaterina | Strychnin Gallery Only one more day until our upcoming exhibition “VALLEY OF DOLLS” opens its door this friday at 7pm! Elena and Ekaterina Popovy will show their great dolls at Strychnin Gallery: We are twin sisters Ekaterina and Elena Popovy, professional artists and fashion designers. At the beginning we were interested in realistic human gesture. Thanks to this interest we deepened our knowledge of human anatomy and facial gesture. However portrait doll didn’t let us express ourselves as designers and we started experimenting with materials. Huge amount of preparative work is behind every collection. The first conceptual project called fashionMOON was presented at the 3rd International Salon in Moscow. Like this: Like Loading...
