Simply push up the ceiling panel and let the pencil do all the work. It works well.
Next, this yellow and green soft sculpture was created by a former student of my father at Concordia University and it is made out of sewn fabric.
In 2013 I used school supply packing paper to create a large weaving, BELOW. It measured 5 feet by 10 feet. This year I moved it to the opposite wall. My wife likes it very much. Tissue paper, yarns, and other bits of color have been added to it. Double click on images to enlarge.
On the top of cabinets, from the ladder on which I perched, items were set where she directed. The ceramic glazed tile sun was made by Jan Marxhausen. It measured 24 by 24 inches.
Above one closet a horizontal textured angel was lifted. The painting was signed "Art by Faye 2006." It measured 24 by 52 inches on composite board. The artist lived in Seward, Nebraska.
On a shelf top were put two paper mache frogs by the Overland Park, Kansas sculptor Maryellen Munger. We bought these two at Linda Lighton's studio a year ago.
Spring Chick by Jan Marxhausen, welded metal. A happy face made of rusted heavy metal parts.
to join the plastic units
into a vertical column.
First two minute video of nine foot creation.
there are trails
going up the back side
you can see thru the front side
there are suspended patches
jutting off the edges
held in place by strategic stickiness
And the whole column hovers away from the wall, so you can see behind it.
A lone pencil at the top secures it in places. How cool is that. I spent a chunk of time creating, peeling, manuvering, flipping joined sections over. A great time seeing this form unfold in front of my eyes. Oldenburg on a small-scale. Pzamm!!!
Second two minute video.
Have a good year Miss Jan!!!!!!
