Faun by novabelgica Faun by novabelgica
Faun version 2.0

Because of problems with the rusty patina (one of the galleries I showed it at had the great idea to put it out in the rain for a week), Faun was sandblasted again and then polished and varnished.

If it were a painting, then perhaps... but since it is a sculpture, we have featured the sculpture. ;)

Wicked piece! I've always liked your design and vision. It's often dark, and I picture some strange world where everyone is at war. I don't know what your intended expression is but it would be interesting to know.

Cheers!

Thanks.

I've actually been creating a kind of universe for these creatures. I've named it the Asylum. It's a refuge for these outcast machines and creatures. Some have fled from their creators because they considered them too dangerous or perhaps they just became obsolete. The Asylum is a post-industrial wasteland where humans no longer dare to go. There is a hierarchy there though. Sentinel stands guard. Watcher sees the new arrivals. Judge decides their fate.

I'm working with a German photographer friend who makes amazing pictures of my sculptures. There may be a book some day... or not. :)

Thank you for your response! Quite an interesting vision. That sounds like something I would enjoy reading or seeing on film, after seeing the art that has been inspired by such thoughts. I have always been fascinated by those alternate worlds that haunt our dreams: the unknown, if you will. I know it's easier said than done but I think you should pursue expanding this world of yours. It would make a great book or series if anything. This is by no means a comparison, but your story reminded me of an anime I saw once called Gunnm: Battle Angel. While completely dissimilar in the story line, the concept of the delicate balance between humans and their machine creations is a focal point.

Well, thanks again for your comments. Best of luck to you! I look forward to seeing your future pieces.

Cheers!

I guess this is a problem for artists like you; gallery people can make the automatic assumption that because a sculpture is metal and looks strong and rugged it'll be fine outside.... You've done a grand job on this one though. :thumbsup:

Yes, I've also had a gallery store my work in a damp cellar for 2 months. Same result.

And thank you.
