Where the sun don't shine

Postby GrubeGallery » Thu Aug 04, 2011 4:54 pm

Hello my friends, I would like to post my latest endeavor; sculture of feet bolted to canvas on board. (don't ask). This is more of a fun thing because of the time and effort spent, I can't imagine changing anything, but, it will be interesting to see your comments.... you never know. I made a special frame for this; when all is dry, it will be in my gallery....

Interesting concept, but the knees should be in line with the feet. As is, it looks like two broken ankles. OUCH! :?

This is a very flexible person, and yes Carson, I imagine it is a bit painful.

Grube ........... I was curious as to you motivation for choosing feet as your subject matter until I viewed your gallery and found "sum of the parts". Your diversity is extensive! I do, however, like the feet mounted on canvas. The only change I would have considered would have been to add a little more ankle. That may have made mounting easier and added a bit more movement to the work. Nonetheless, well done! The other work "Is that me" scares me.

Hi Grube,
I like the idea, but I'd prefer to see the WHITE feet mounted. Maybe if you work on a hand (you made a really good job molding the feet) appearing through a hole on the canvas or through a piece of fabric or something , would be more artsy and would not be so.. scaring :twisted: !

I'm loving the idea of the sculpture and painting together... it makes a very unique and interesting art, and I like the way the protruding feet matches the skin tones of the other body parts... [my smutty mind makes me see the nose & eyes as another set of organs entirely haha].
I can see another composition with that.., [the sculpted feet, together with a painting of protruding butt & head.. and maybe hands too.. [as if the subject is deep in water, with only those body parts showing on the surface].. except for that one, the sun would definitely shine on those parts.

I think I can rotate the feet out more once the paint is dry. That may work better. Yes, there is plenty of symbolism here, at least for me... ( I was thinking of adding two hands grasping the outside of the frame ) Too much?

I could see two hands grasping the frame would make it complete/ balanced..
[although I would first test it out by either sketching the hands with chalk, or tape cut-out paper hands at the places I'd like them to be, then stand back and see if it works or not]
