Some motivation from other artists
I found the red chair above, that is walking, to be very intriguing. I enjoy the movement and awkwardness of the legs.. I also like the organic melting of the chairs, the oozyness is an edgy form that could be pushed a multitude of ways.
-Step 1, find a chair: antique mall $15.00
-wonder through Lowes to find the best supplies
-Destroy seat and take apart entire chair
-Don't forget to smile this is the fun part
-reassemble pieces of the old chair to make new legs and seat
-use new wood to make horn like back rests
-next step, chicken wire cape base
-Attach chicken wire with staple gun
Overall, I really enjoyed creating my chair. The project being to redefine the chair, in my opinion was a success from my starting sketch. Would you know my piece was once a real chair? maybe, but it no longer functions as such. For, what was once a boring necessity is now living art. My piece is about the struggles and burdens (the red cape) that I and everyone faces, the legs are struggling to walk with such weight on its shoulders. The horns are the fight that everyone instinctually has to keep carrying onward through life's challenges.
