Inspiring Artist

Recently I’ve been researching soft sculpture. Searching the internet I found the work of Yuko Takada Keller a Japanese artist working in tracing paper. You can see more on her website.

I can’t imagine how she hangs these sculptures, but they’re beautiful. I love how light and airy they are.

She writes “Prismatic”is the second work that I installed 3-dimensionally. It is one of my favorite works. It is composed of 7,500 pyramids. The theme of “Prismatic” is a shower of light that I felt in nature. “Prismatic” was traveling in U.K. in 1991 and in Canada from 1993 to 1995.”

I recently stumbled upon the work of Joan Livingstone. Here are some of her pieces in industrial felt and epoxy resin. I love her forms because they relate to nature, even though they’re abstract. You can see more on her website.

Sometimes I’m scared to venture into new territory in my own work but then I say what’s life like if you’re not a little scared? Boring!
