Lasting Impression Life Casts
I have been a portrait and figure sculptor for nearly 20 years and a member of Model Mayhem since 2010 (DC Sculptor, 1565464)
Summer 2011 , I experienced lifecasting for the first time in a workshop taught by international sculptor and lifecaster, Dave Parvin (1141218) . Initially I was curious about the process and thought it would help me become a better sculptor. What I got was so much more. The Spark to lifecast and the realization of lifecasting as a legitimate and creative art form in itself.
So in addition to sculpting i have done some lifecasting. Some pieces i have done myself. Some are collaborations with other gifted artists.
I have been extremely fortunate to have sculpted and cast six adventurous Model Mayhem Models so far (keith NYC, Matthew Arsenault, Kathleen Larrick, Gary Biz, Christine House and Muscular Jessie Lee ) . In addition to each being brave, they are professional, fun and remarkable for creating gestures. I highly recommend them to any artist or photographer .
One of the best things about Model Mayhem is the opportunity to meet so many diverse, talented people and collaborate.
RANDOM THOUGHTS , the lifecast in my avatar involved different artists including seven MM Members at different stages.....months after Dave's class , myself, jeri at life cast (2581279) and wade at row bear casting (2329418) cast Model Gary Biz (1829394). After hours of casting and a few weekends of chasing , molding and remolding assisted by berinu (708701) we had John at Jsmith photo (719365) do the photo shoot of the first cast in Bonded Marble.
