Term: 3 Year: 2017
Year 8 students from Toorak College explored figurative sculptures.During this unit students investigated the relationship of humanity and our understanding of ourselves through the study of Figurative sculpture; we looked at multitude of materials and techniques.
A collection of initial examples informed ideas for the development of individual expression. The materials and techniques directly related to the needs of the form and was based around a wire armature and the creation of form through the application of ‘paper pulp’. The considerations where: form, proportion, texture, shape, negative and positive space, balance, appropriate materials, techniques and finishes according to the personal taste.
Below is a list of our main considerations in the making of the figure.
· Formation of the armature
· Balance of composition
· Use of movement
· Application of materials; texture and form
· Use of negative and positive space
· Finished work; the overall quality
