Re: sculpture & movement

The problem with "movement" is that it is indecisive; not committed to represent an action...but trying to BE the action. And once natural laws (physics) have begun to represent you, then you have given-in. With some strife it is possible to reverse that relationship and let an "action" quite be the CAUSE of the representation (or the effectiveness). But you gotta be into strife...if not, let the sculpture run around all over the place as it wishes.

But I do love rebar.....freeze that thing in its best spot (you decide) and it will rock for sure.

Re: sculpture & movement

c'est un plaisir, ainsi qu'une reponse in french ...
mille mercis.
about movement, outsite I use wind as energy,
and I live in a windy country ...
so each one is thought to begin its work with the smallest possible wind,
that introduce equilibrium
and have to modify their lift to be able to support storms .....
that introduce mechanic.
so each line has to be efficient & esthetic.
result is desiged by this wedding.

Re: sculpture & movement

I like it a lot. More for it's movement as an abstract form
than as a representation of a bird. Nice work, well done.

Je l'aime beaucoup. Plus pour it' ; mouvement de s comme forme abstraite
que comme représentation d'un oiseau. Travail gentil, puits - fait.

Re: sculpture & movement

hello,
thyanks for the answer, as you perfectly guess, the intention is not so much to get some representation of a bird or anything else, but to use it as a pretext for a movement.
you may see more following that idea on these videos about the opening of a new show room in my studio :

2012 the gallery

enjoy the visit .........

Re: sculpture & movement

I recently heard a friend introducing me as a 'mechanic-sculptor', why not, it is an interesting shortcut.
What is remarquable about mechanics is that it does not have moods, although it has a philosophy. There is no good or bad mechanics, it either works or it does not, for a long time or not, well or not. The original choices made by the engineer are reponsible for its success, as well as the means he has or he decides to have.
The meaning of mechanic is, as well, universally shared, although many of its choices reflect specific cultures. It has, in that way, a philosophical dimension. It belongs to Humanity, as well as langage, music or dance.

I am a sculptor, yes, of course, but be aware that the meaning of the word varies according to cultures, time, and even social classes. As far as I am concerned, sculpture is a way of multi dimensionnal expression. Four spatial and temporal dimensions on one hand, with the intrusion of movement, therefore, mechanics, cutural and historical, on the other hand, with its implication of fields of knowledge as well as knowhow, like any form of art, but maybe more than most of them. The means useful to its implementation go from zero to the infinite according to the frame chosen by its creator.

In my opinion, the chosen frame, or the fundemental reference, would be similar to the one of the Cistercian Abbaye of Thoronet: minimal means, a mature understanding of the elements, roughly hewn and finely adjusted, in which form expresses a 'master' word: balance.
