joycesu Finally hung this crazy thing I made back in 2014. 2016, time to revisit sculptures. 1d
  •   visuill My 2016 goal is to make masks haha 🏻 1d
  •   joycesu @visuill dope! I was randomly researching Chinese death masks the other day, they are so crazy. 1d
  •   visuill @joycesu ahh that's awesome. I definitely love researching different cultural masks 1d
  •   cnikarts what is it made from? 1d
  •   cnikarts besides the bird skulls 1d
  •   joycesu @cnikarts besides the skulls... brass tubing, wire, matte black chain (I got weirdly obsessed with finding the right chains), and gold acrylic and matte black spray paints <- literally was spray painting everything within reach matte black for a minute, including a flower haha. There's a video of me somewhere back in the feed of using a chop saw to cut all the pieces to size. In hindsight I would have built the piece much bigger because it'd look better and it would have been easier to execute. C'est la vie, live and learn. 1d
  •   cnikarts it looks pretty well executed from the pic, but i know what you mean about smaller being more difficult with stuff like that... I'll try to find the video. im impressed with the geometry... and the matte black paint haha 1d

joycesu I got to visit Kozy and Dan last night for dinner and poke around their studios. Their work (collaboratively and also separately) is pretty fantastic and if you don't already follow them, you should go do that. 2d
