I’m back in China, same place, to make a couple more large figures. To start with, a reclining figure about 3.5 meters long.
Yesterday, my first day here, I confronted the big white styrofoam reclining figure…always unsettling to see it in this phase…until i work it, rework it, make friends with it and carry on with the plaster. Seems that it never looks quite right until I extend the arms and legs. Scaling up from the original changes the perspective and things that looked right in the small size, look wierd in large. (and everything looks wierd in styrofoam!)
Mr. Zang who is working with me ( I’m guessing he’s about 25 years old), posed for me.. lots of laughs!
