New Sculptures by Jessica Dalva Come to Life

The last time we featured sculptor Jessica Laurel Louise, aka Jessica Dalva, she was exploring a ritualistic narrative with her feminine works. In the two years since, her art has developed to reflect a multitude of personal interests and skills; her hand-painted sculptures, shadow boxes, drawings, and recently, clay animation, collectively exhibit a cinematic taste. Communicating movement has become an important focus for Dalva. She keeps a diary of her excursions at her blog, from her travels to studying animal anatomy at Natural History Museum, and drying scarves in the wind. These have had a noticeable effect on her artwork.

CEMENT ECLIPSES @ CHIAPAS MEXICO

Artist Isaac Cordal (tumblr / facebook) - “With the simple act of miniaturization and thoughtful placement, Isaac Cordal magically expands the imagination of pedestrians finding his sculptures on the street. Cement Eclipses is a critical definition of our behavior as a social mass. The art work intends to catch the attention on our devalued relation with the nature through a critical look to the collateral effects of our evolution. With the master touch of a stage director, the figures are placed in locations that quickly open doors to other worlds. The scenes zoom in the routine tasks of the contemporary human being”.

Glass Gellage by Michal Macku

Since the end of 1989, Michal Macku has used his own creative technique which he has named “Gellage” (the ligature of collage and gelatin). The technique consists of transfering the exposed and fixed photographic emulsion from its original base on paper. This transparent and plastic gelatin substance makes it possible to reshape and reform the original images, changing their relationships and endowing them with new meanings during the transfer. The finished work gives a compact image with a fine surface structure.

Anatomical Sculptures of Mythical Beings by Masao Kinoshita

Sculpted out of fiberglass, the anatomical models of mythical beings and hybrid creatures by Masao Kinoshita resemble exhibits from another dimension.

It is not an art exhibit I am referring to here, but an otherworldly version of the world-famous Bodyworlds exhibition. One that doesn’t feature humans or animals, but showcases plastinated models of nymphs, centaurs, the legendary Pegasus and even the deity Ganesha. The latter is perhaps the most imposingly sculpted, with four arms and intricate detailing.

Showing these mythic figures and animals with their muscles and skeletal system exposed yanks them down from the lofty cloud-covered pedestals of legend and folklore, turning the previously untouchable mystery of their being into preserved specimens made for educational tours and public examination. Having a deeper understanding of something can lead to even greater appreciation, as shown with Bodyworlds’s intimate tribute to the human form!

Oddly creatures by Dug Stanat. Last pic depicts just too well the expression on my face daring a first look at the mirror in the morning - maybe I should search by bathroom for hidden surveillance cams ;)

The Graceful Sculptures of

Forest Rogers

Just a word here, for the moment. I studied stage design at Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA, receiving an MFA in Costume Design. I make critters, both ‘fine’ and commercial. More anon!
