New Sculpture

This is a sculpture I made last week. I haven't done sculpture in years mostly because everything I sculpted in was so toxic and bad for the environment. But I found a new sculpting material that I can mix my self. It is peat moss, cement and pearlite, and Spanish moss. I formed a chicken wire form armature first and then formed the sculpture mixture on top of the wire. I really enjoyed using the natural materials. The smells and textures were fantastic, much better that fiberglass. This wall sculpture is about 3' tall by 15" wide. When I return home I plan on doing some 3-D pieces. I have an idea to incorporate circuit boards into the sculpture. I think it would be interesting to juxtapose technology artifacts with the primitive looking materials.

I painted this oil painting for Cheryl and mines show in March. It is 78" by 54" . Originally it was just the two figures but last week I added the swirling universe, galaxy images to it. I am more and more trying to depict my studies in Quantum physics, energy, and universal laws.
