A new semester, a new goal. This semester I am finally in sculpture studio! I now get to plan and create a body of work that I choose! My body of work is about perception. I struggle with an autoimmune disease, and want to show the two sides of how the world views me and how I see myself. I am doing so, by casting body parts such as my first work, the hand and part of the arm. I am keeping the top of the hand and arm "normal" and making the palm side abstracted with bones and tendons etc. emphasized. I am utilizing a mirror to reflect the underside of the hand/arm as how I am reflected as normal to the world, but in actuality I see myself as the abstracted side, full of pain and hardships.
the clay hand below is a small model of how my final piece will be reflected
