Spent another day in the workshop working on the details of the first two sculptures.
Just needed to return to my favourite architects today.
Frank Gehry’s fish building in Barcelona
I still can’t quite believe that a human being can be so outrageous as these two are with buildings. I feel that my sculptures should be equally outrageous so that people stop and look.
Gehry’s brick building in Sydney
Gaudi’s Sagrada balls
Is outrageousness a good thing in art? I guess so if it is the opposite of bland. Outrageousness is risky, blandness is safe. Blandness can be passed by without so much as a glance, while artists wants to say something new then they must stop people in their tracks. Getting people to return and look again at something can be achieved in a variety of ways and I suppose a degree of outrageousness is one of them.
