My Relief project was done with wood, hot glue, toothpicks, and acrylic paint. It relates to nature in the sense that this woman is in fear, pain, and seems to be starved while bathing herself. Her face is blocked by a variety of colors that represent both the beauty and insanity of a natural habitat. The toothpicks are built up to be a dark, evil, spined entity coming from the depths of the water.
Dustin Yellin is a 41 year old artist based out of brooklyn new york, and he creates large dystopian sculptures using resin and layering glass. He mainly focuses on human anatomy/mutation and dystopian themed structures often abstract. His work started as collaging and painting when one day he was working on a painting setting it with resin when a bee landed on it and he captured it in the resin. He then began to capture bugs in resin often creating unique arrangements with their suspended bodies.His pieces started off quite small however now they are so large they have to be moved with a forklift. My favorite work hes done is the installation he has at luncoln center in new york. The instillation consists of multiple large rectangular pieces that dipict mutated human forms using resin and layering glass as well as injecting resin with inks.
The artist i chose was Peter Aurisch,although he is not a sculpture artist i find his work to be very inspiring and tie into sculpture art. He is a tattoo artist based out of Berlin whose work contains fine lines, vibrant colors, and simple yet obscure finished pieces. His detailing and fine lines are similar to what i wish to incoorperate into my work. His work is mainly surreal, but has some pieces where he ties realism with vibrant background. He is mainly a tattoo artist but he does do murials in his city. Unfortunantely i could not find his website but his work is something i look up to greatly.
