Goodbye Yellow Brick Road

   by Luke Forsman and Danielle Borie for Re-Invent a Work of Art (2013)

Inspiration Piece: Goodbye Yellow Brick Road

Inspiration Artist: Elton John

We built it with two sides that contrast based on the song by Elton John. The brick road is in the middle because it is the step between leaving fortune and going back to the familiar embrace of the farm. The details in the farm animals are modeled with sculpey, the little fence is made from small pieces of wooden dowels and twine and the buildings are constructed from green foam, thin wooden sheet and canvas. We painted areas on the cardboard box and built up the brick road with oil based clay.
