Siteless- ‘Globule’

I was inspired by the body and the voluptuous shapes of skin and flesh. I wanted to create a malleable soft effect from a hard substance and experiment with material in that way. I chose to do a plaster carving. I really enjoyed this process, particularly the effect upon the surface that the serrated kidney made, as it resembled the creases in skin. If I had more time I would have liked to make a mould of my carving and cast it in softer materials, such as lard and gelatin. These materials in particular would have made an interesting triptych as not only would they go from opaque to transparent but also hard to soft.  which I feel would have been an interesting exploration of materials in relation to shape and form.
