CJ Miller: GOARAX in Progress


In my experience as an artist, I have always found that the best way to master a new skill is to have fun with subject matter while you're in a rookie, experimental phase. In Andrew Scott's Digital Application in Sculpture 450 class, I am creating a 10 ft serial stacked sculpture of a winged lion. My inspiration comes from classical sculpture which adorns buildings round the world with imagery of mythical beasts and mythology. Gorax will be comprised of 231 18x32 sheets of luan, and the physical effort put into constructing him will mean many, many hours of vigilantly lining every numbered piece up correctly, and clamping and gluing it all together. additionally fabricating the remaining parts from printed patterns created from the rhino program.
