This is today’s doodle. It began as a bunch of dots, then I turned them into shapes and patterns and incorporated some typography. I made this with my 0.4mm pen on A4 paper, got it onto illustrator and vectorised it. I’m really happy with this and believe it should be seen bigger so I included some close up screen shots. I see this piece as a celebration of shape. I hope you enjoy it.

Lisa Hamilton

20/Nov/11

Lisa Hamilton has studied in New York, Germany and the Netherlands. She is a painter, sculptor and creates art with ink, paint and pencil.

On her website you can see a clear development in her work. It begins in 2006 where her work is oil on canvas, crazy brush strokes create amazing pieces. As the years go on her work merges into geometric block shapes with a small amounts of detail, then onto her sculpture work, made of paper, glue and paint, she has created a sculptural portrayal of the paintings she has done previously.

This is the first in a series of movable object works based on an investigation of color and shape that began in paintings. Forms have developed out of a desire to literally ‘play’ with the idea that shape and color are largely dependent on perspective. The shapes have migrated off the surface and into a hinged series of forms that can be rearranged; retaining an object’s rationality whatever position they are set or perspective they are encountered. The viewer is encouraged to play with the work and, if they like, ponder the notion of how an object might pose as a painting or pose a riddle to the understanding of a painting.

Here is the set.

Devin Powers lives and work in Brooklyn and has an MFA and BA. His work is intensely geometric and perfects and really reflects what I want to achieve at some point in my graphics career. When you look through his website you can really see his work developing further and further, however I prefer his older stuff.

Antony Gormley

Antony Gormley is a well known sculptor born in London, he’s received awards and held exhibitions all over the world. Gormley is a sculptor who’s work is relative to shape and geometry (although not all of it). The majority of his work is based on people, but he has occasionally delved into experimentation with both geometry and people, he has managed to create figures from:

” tetrahedral, cubic, dodecahedral and more complex polygons”

His illustrations really reflect the thought behind his sculptures.

This is his project in 2009-2010 called Aperture.

I also recommend for you to look at other projects, specifically: Exposed Expansion Works (2007-2008), Hive (2006-2009) and Feeling Material (2003-2008).

Emma Kunz

Emma Kunz is one of my artistic idols, as soon as I came across her work I fell in love. Kunz was born in 1892 and died in 1963 and is described as a healer, researcher and artist. As a healer she performed successful treatments bordering on miracles, yet she denied the term ‘miracle’ and she believe the power is in everyone. In 1941 she discovered a healing rock called AION A. From then on she created large scale prints using graph paper and personally I find her work incredible.

 

Fred Sandback

Fred Sandback was born in New York, he studied philosophy then sculpture and is now renowned for his sculptures using wool. Sandback’s concept is quite simple but the results he comes out with are really appealing, as the sculpture itself can be seen from different angles, therefore creating different shapes and compositions.

 

Finally some more of my own work, let me know what you think.

Soon they’ll be printed on t-shirts if anyone’s interested send me an e-mail.
