Inspired by an interactive piece at the UC Berkeley Art Museum, I made a fun little sculpture in the kids area. The artist Charles Long created a wonderful display with blocks of plasticine for kids (and some adults) to make something and put it out for display. It was quite popular with my boys and I had a great time too! Since Nozkowski has been on my mind, I did a sculpture inspired by him.

Links: Nozkowski

The geometric and the organic in one string of lights.

An amorphous wreath.

This Shibori DIY coincides well with Nozkowski's aesthetic.

This little lamp is so like Nozkowski's amorphous shapes.

A quick and easy Nozkowski-inspired sculpture DIY.

Imagines Nozkowski 80s Album Cover

My parents had an album with a cover that featured a white grid in the background. I studied that cover along with all the others and still remember many of them now, 30 some years later. It definitely proves the strength of visual materials to a young child.
That grid came out in this Nozkowski inspired drawing. I couldn't help it.

After Nozkowski

Pastels are like paint without the mess or the heady smell.  They make a painted drawing.  After a lot of time away I am finally feeling ready to work again.  Nozkowski is still my chief influence right now and so far I am really enjoying the creation of playful backgrounds and amorphous shapes.
