Life isn’t fair or unfair; it is what it is. A few months back, I did these three pieces made entirely out of paper (and some steel) for a chance to win an art competition. Turns out, these entries weren’t good enough for the judges. To be very honest, I was glad I didn’t win, because parting with your creations is perhaps the most difficult thing to do. These are MINE and I hope you like them.
NOTE: This week’s challenge truly captures the essence of possessiveness, so I couldn’t help myself from re-posting these images. The originals with their poetic descriptions can be found at Into The Light, Anyone’s Game, and Mission: Earth.
This here is the next installment in the Cold Fusion series. I call this ‘Mission: Earth’. Enough said, I’ll let the photo and the poem speak for themselves:
Mission: Earth Our skin tones might be miles apart But it’s only red we bleed Hand in hand, O! my brethren We’ll spread the word of peace Plant trees, recycle, save the earth Let’s atone for our past misdeeds!
This is a new initiative I’ve started working on. With every new artwork/sculpture I make, I shall be adding a stanza of poetry to describe the piece. Let’s hope you can all appreciate my sentiments. This right here is the first in a series of many Cold Fusions to come.
I have recently completed three installations that are competing for a commission with one of the biggest names in the Airline industry. The competition is tough, but hope prevails. Here goes nothing:
Anyone’s Game Life might be like a game of chess
But I’m done being black and white
Let’s take control, reach for the stars
And live larger than life!
As an amateur artist, one always aspires to be great, to find that one individual niche that sets you aside from the rest. I have, in my journey as an artist, tried finding something that I can ‘originally’ call my own. Here’s a summarized version of all the authentic paper art I have created since I started.
Serene Supplication – Handcut on card-stock
Serene Supplication – the praying man
Arabian Nights – Handcut on card-stock
Arabesque – Handcut on card-stock
Arabian Nights – close-up
The Anniversary Card
The Glass Bowl – inspired by a crystal bowl my wife loves.
Dangerous Curves – the first original piece I made
