Congratulations to Junior Louis G. for his sculptures' nomination to the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards! This is what he had to say about his piece.
"This piece is an exploration of the three-dimensional potential of paper. Fueled by the process of creating forms using material from our mark making unit, I hoped to keep an untamed flavor throughout the piece. The paper I used was found paper, filled with random marks created by an assortment of everyday objects’ prints when combined with ink. Throughout the process I played with the connection between the two pieces with the aim of creating a reliance between the two.
I want the viewer to notice the powerful negative space between the two halves of the sculpture. Is it a severance or a coming together? I think it is interesting how the negative space can give the sculpture meaning, even though it is not part of the piece itself."
