The artist I chose to do my sculpture on is Tim Hawkinson. I wanted to post the picture I am using to do my carving. I also posted the start of my sculpture, hopefully second time around will be a better success than the first. I am going to sculpt my face and use a different material to make the birds and the branch that are coming out of the mouth (still trying to figure out which materials will work best). I came across the picture of his sculpture where he used a red tone so I was thinking about painting my sculpture a reddish tone. Most of his themes include his own body, music and passing of time, as well as his artistic engagement with material, technique and process.
