We were up at the museums of art in NY once and thought….man if this blue canvas is art then we can do it too. This thought really sunk in when we saw the white canvas!....that is it…some guy put his name on a white canvas and he got to be in a museum. Go figure!
Anyway and all dreams of being an artist aside, I really liked the cubismo paintings by Picasso and some other artists. I thought it would be cool to do an inspired sculpture from my shop scrap pieces. So I created the central piece which is obviously easy but hey…blank cavas vs glueing up blocks- I think I am still ahead.
I felt that the piece would show nicely in an open box. So I hand cut dovetails for the first time and made an open box that I mounted on a french cleat. All made from shop scrap and leftovers.
