Now you see it.....

I'm thinking about making a whole body of invisible monumentally scaled sculptures. Anyone else intrigued?

Re: Now you see it.....

Funny how things work out...I've had this piece in my studio for two years...
It's not as large as I think it could be, but you be the judge:

Thanks and I appreciate any comments, especially the negative ones. Thanks for saying what you feel because even if I disregard it as being inane or just plain ignorant, I would give my life to protect your right to say it!

From what I can see there's nothing new here. Been done before.

I appreciate your frankness (joeness?)...I think it's actually quite original. Perhaps you'd be good enough to show an example of what you are implying I might have borrowed my idea for this piece from...

Re: Now you still don't see it.....

Can anyone actually "push the boundaries of visual art" with concepts that remain invisible and only engage the mind?

If you are pushing boundries with concepts of the mind, one wonders what those boundries were doing there in the first place.

Re: Now you see it.....

I've been seriously thinking about how many sculptures I've done that might count as "invisible." Here is one that might work - a self-portrait from 2008 (painted steel).



Anybody else got one?
