Sex in The Park

   by Tammy Novak for Re-Invent a Work of Art (2013)

Inspiration Piece: The Kiss

Inspiration Artist: Gustav Klimt

I used the steel wire (cut with wire cutters), two wooden dowels, the floral foam block and the chavant modeling clay to create the lovers in an embrace. I then glued them down onto the painted canvas board. I cut and painted the canvas cloth, as well as some of the shredded newsprint to create the blanket. I also unraveled some of the rope, painted red for the woman’s hair. The blanket was wrapped around the couple and glued into place. Next I created the background using the oak plywood and a hardwood block. I cut another hardwood block, weaved and painted some of the sculpey polymer lay to create the picnic basket. I also molded flowers and leaves for the hair, a wine bottle and two wine glasses.

I always thought the couple in Klimt's The Kiss were in the park on a picnic when it got a bit steamy and lead to the kiss under the blanket.
