HYPERREALISM SCULPTURES Art Studio
What is Form? Form has 3 dimensions: Length, Width & Height. In the art world, Form can exist in two ways: “Real” – Creating a work of art that can be held in real life. (Sculpture, Ceramics, Crafts, etc.) “Rendered” – Drawing a form using technique and shading to make it seem 3-D, even though it is still 2-D
What is Hyperrealism? Hyperrealism is a technique used in all forms of art (drawing, painting, sculpture, etc.) that makes the artwork look so life-like it is hard to tell the difference between what is real and what isn’t. In order to create work that is hyper realistic, the artist must focus on basic shapes, colors and details.
Ron Mueck Australian Artist. Works mostly in the U.K. Hyper realist sculptor. Works both in extremely large or very small scale.
Robin Antar American Artist. Sculptor who works mostly with stone. Started sculpting in high school. Works both in large and actual size.
Toothpaste and York
What is her inspiration? Antar has said that she sees her sculptures as a record of contemporary culture, which is why she often creates works of food, clothing and every-day objects.
Who else? Andy Warhol! Who else created artwork based on food that played off of contemporary culture?
Project Process: 5 Concept Sketches. Upon approval, armature will be created. Armature will be plastered. “Armature” is the inner skeleton of a work of art. Once dry, armature will be painted.
Project Guidelines: All sculptures must have an armature made from recycled objects that YOU bring in! (Plastic bottles, food containers, cardboard, etc.) NO glass or aluminum. Students can work in groups, but each student must create a significant portion of the project (armature, plaster, paint) You cannot make: Breakfast, Bagels, Pizza.
Remember… Plan ahead (at least 5 sketches) Structure matters Print a few color photographs for reference and keep them in your sketch books! Plaster should replicate real textures Work neatly!
