Plaster impressions of real life

I saw this brilliant artwork by Daniel Arsham on the fabulously inspirational Swiss Miss blog.

Daniel Arsham sculpture "Curtain"

If you are familiar with my sculpture making past you’ll instantly know why this caught my attention, but if not, this piece will give you an idea.

I’m not saying my work matches the level that Daniel Arsham is working on – I am comparing my student work – but I do feel it kind of demonstrates the direction I might have taken my sculpture had I pursued it further. Having given up making art, I do rather love it when I see work like this that makes me think “There. I didn’t need to carry on cos someone else is doing it for me. Good!”
