Teresa Reaver for Re-Invent a Work of Art (2013)
Inspiration Piece: Da Vinci's Codeces (his compilations of manuscripts and drawings)
Inspiration Artist: Leonardo Da Vinci
I have chosen to base my piece on the codeces of Leonardo Da Vinci. This carousel model attempts to bring to life in 3 dimensions some of Da Vinci's most influential works.
Brief build description:
I began by deconstructing the canvas board and the oak plywood based on drawings I made of the pieces needed my base. I then sawed, filed, sanded, molded and painted the various elements built mainly from the sheet wood, walnut blocks and steel wire.
