Chàng nghệ sĩ ni không
zùng bút chì như một hoạ- sĩ ..mà xài bút chì như một diêu-khắc-za..
These are some
very creative models created out of pencils!
creator of these pictures Jennifer Maestre says,
"My sculptures were originally
inspired by the form and function of the sea urchin. The spines of the
urchin, so dangerous yet beautiful, serve as an explicit warning against
contact. The alluring texture of the spines draws the touch in spite of
the possible consequences."
"To make the
pencil sculptures, I take hundreds of pencils, cut them into 1-inch
sections, drill a hole in each section (to turn them into beads), sharpen
them all and sew them together."
"I started off in
the direction of prickly things when I was in my last year at Mass
College of Art. It all comes from one idea I had for a box with a secret
compartment that would contain a pearl. The box would be shaped like a
sea urchin, made of silver. In order to open the box and reveal the
secret compartment, you’d have to pull on one of the urchin’s spines. The
idea was of something beautiful, sculptural, but that you wouldn’t
necessarily want to touch, and that also held a secret treasure."
