It's been a while since I've created a "serious" sculpture. I've always admired the works of Nathan Sawaya, Sean Kenney and the like, who are able to flawlessly replicate the natural beauty of a human body out of a geometric medium. I attempted to create a female mannequin and try to mimic the human form with rectangular bricks as much as possible.
One of the challenges was replicating the natural curves on the human body out of bricks. This was done by creating slight gradients, so that when viewed from afar it would mimic the form as much as possible.
Very rarely is the human body seen as one of nature's masterpieces, as opposed to an exploitable object. Everyone is beautiful in their own way, and I think that's the point I'm trying to get across
Comments and constructive criticism are most welcome.
