Methods in Netsuke modeling

My early preparations during summer has lead me to sketch up new ideas of modeling diagrams in a more larger scale, like turning a normal object into something mysterious but huge beyond anything then I could ever produce in three dimensional. Primary method into large structures were searching for answers on Japanese influence into various hybrids or monsters known in their own culture, as they were told in stories, ancient artifacts and folklore tales of what could inspire me to develop new diagrams of planning with my next resources of wooden carving and blending with two materials I mostly used in last years Doodle hybrids.

New technique of large-scale netsuke experimentation:

  • Start of plan on my own diagrams of shaping regular animals into unseen Japanese monsters
  • Investigate on new artists of Niki de Saint Phalle and Auguste Forestier
  • Practice on doodle sculpting in skeletal wooden figures and combine with various materials used in handmade
  • Study on Netsukes/Pokémon influence into my own model’s details
  • Manipulate with chicken wires and fabric-hessian dips in plaster
  • Work on prototypes towards my masterpiece for exhibition near Christmas and Degree show- end of term 3

Evidence on large scale methods:

These are the early works in wooden straws that meant to resemble a lion and gorilla, which it said to have mentioned in many different forms of animals as Japanese would describe them as kaiju or in translation giant monsters and it had filled my inspiration of building my year 3 models in such big scales.

Mostly to resemble a replica of my chosen monster that comes from different periods or cultures meant to examine on their legacy of being gods among mankind like some creatures of Pokemon were legendary like noting we ever heard or seen in our world and monsters I’ve remember from childhood which are brought into the realty of Monster-verse films via Godzilla and Kong universes.

For my term 1 project to take effect I started to craft my first prototype form of a wooden skeleton as if this method could be identical shape of the Trojan-horse. Giving my model’s appearance of a lion while drawing my blueprints in sketchbook of what I’d gathered in resources of plaster equipment and put them all together to make a perfection of a fiery-power replica of Solgaleo.

Method in Netsuke diagram of my prototype: Blazing-Solgaleo:

After finishing my prototype I begin to make a second alpha of the gorilla, which shows me a reflection to a childhood celestial titan called King-Kong like throughout his battles with ancient monsters like all kinds of predators even rivals whom to had crossed paths once. That I do the same in plaster with an added marble eyes, followed with doodle colouring to my Grillaboom figure in a jungle habitat next to his arch-rival’s home-turf of ignited flame desert with Blazing-Solgaleo.

Using Petrit Halilaj’s knowledge of visual stage arts, I’d crafted several props of two half’s of both fiery desert and blossoming rainforest and at wherever they roam across lands or regions their elemental powers would spread as they walked on the very earth humans felt in their presence.

Term 2 development of Elemental-beasts phase 2-Nighttime theme leading to the path of the Degree-Show:

Medium/small size animals at night seem to wonder their habitats like forests, which my finalized model would hang near the moon at nighttime forest as if my Lunala replica was worshipped as a goddess of the moon.

3302 Contextual Niki de Saint Phalle's influence

3302 Contextual-Studies

Over summer are to research on new practitioners who had worked in my next method of large-scale, it gives me a challenge of assembling my models to new heights in multiple materials of combining both ceramics and doodle technique into my own gigantic collection of frightening mixed media within Netsuke replicas.

Starting on Niki De Saint Phalle-French artist, to research her academic work on monumental figures representing not because a normal hobby but an emotional feeling of living into sanctuary. Wanted to be free from fear/aggression and abused childhood-particularly her father. This inflicted her life before adulthood, traumatized Niki used rough techniques of shooting paintball liquids on unused objects, as if her negative thoughts had taken hold and it might described what allows her troubled life to have freedom of being herself.

Taken advantage of her abused life, enhanced into her way of ceramics. Not only Niki had to endue loads of challenges finding art careers but had to channel her past nightmares in order to let go of fear and hatred and which is a very reason I could investigate to her large monumental figures.

Learning over my summer research are reflecting within Niki’s traumatized life, to build bigger scales like never been witness before as children would explore and climbing over them like obstacle-courses or just riding them. Most of her crowned figures were published at a huge sculptural park in Tuscany countryside/Capalbio Italy, from the ground up she’d manipulated large metal wiring that I absorbed her technique to craft my Netsuke-beasts from a range of mixed resources of handmade materials wood, metal-wiring, plaster and doodle patterning.

An old riddle would say, huge beings of monsters manufactured from Niki’s imagination throughout her abused life in childhood rising from hilltops of the forest-landscape.

Auguste Forestier’s role in wooden toys, which I’d used his reflected craftsmanship of assembling skeletal figures. In my primary theory of doodle ceramics, are about expanding my replicas from small versions of Japanese Netsuke to new heights of Niki’s influence and how my beast replicas would appear from Japanese-cultural arts.

Mainly to help assemble models in such great heights, able on viewing carefully carving of cartoon monsters like Pokémon

Furthermore, in my improvement of taking cartoon arts to the next stage into acrylic-painting, are searching Keith Haring to learn more his professional role as a doodle artist. Most of his artworks have a bizarre way of showing-off goofy appearances, my last years cartoons are a completely different way when extending outlined illustrations to his advantages. because Haring can do to some of his creations having a strange relationship with wacked-up characteristics that might affect in gender DNA, not only to understand what he’d spread influence into public society but have begun to fulfill his potential in early development when he was a child oldest of four siblings.

Methods in Haring’s journey:

  • Born in Kutztown, Pennsylvania 1958
  • Started his early life on graphic and illustration arts blended in cartoon characteristics
  • Originated from his father
  • A separated link between cartooning and artistic illustration
  • Studied at Ivy School of Professional Art in Pittsburgh
  • Took his talents of expanding on empty walls to adapt on cartoon patterning
  • Known by his graphic form of graffiti arts like in underground subway in New-York 1980s
  • Graduated in June 3, 1976

Reading on a staging method of putting up a visual theater for my two Elemental-Beasts, is Petrit-Halilaj’s role of developing a storytelling artwork. That he created “Very volcanic over this green feather” at the time of Halilaj’s troubled childhood, which it had originated from his family but Halilaj’s village were caught in crossfire of the Serbian-Kosovar war and had to evacuate the devastation of his birthplace.

  • Said to be first solo exhibition at Tate St Ives

Since the wars end Petrit-Halilaj had continued his techniques of installation and sculpture, he’d explored in many sorts of personal history, constructs dwellings and shelters. Because it meant to symbolize with the outcome of Halilaj’s youth that was taken from him and family, it’s a sad tale of what it felt of if our childhood home is stolen from a part of his legacy in visual developments.

Searching for any artists with similar connection in doodle development like Jean Dubuffet, whom to had studied on French painting/sculpture due to having an idealistic form of directive approach to aesthetics. being embraced within so-called “low-art” as if might be traditional standards of adapting to beauty in favor or perhaps it should be more authentic and humanistic approach to image-making. Particularly a detected method of Dubuffet’s well known into an art movement called Art-Brut or translation Outsider-Art, Because this helps to maintain his role of academic painting even so it leads to investigating within most of his oil painting mixed within various resources including earth/handmade materials and by this response he develop his own form into French doodle structures.

French methods in sculpturing Niki de Saint Phalle's influence

Auguste Forestier

In my investigation into the next sculptor called Auguste Forestier, who begins his career in France during the 20th century. This gives Forestier a ability to carve magical objects which is a different kind of approach into human-made manipulation and can also be influenced by clarify and categorization.

When studying on Forester’s research into wooden model experiments, like I was examining on Jury-Rigged Assemblages almost if I’m mistaken for inventory of otherworldly via toy collection.

Methods in Forestier’s techniques:

  • Viewing on these strange but wonderful models carved from wooden materials
  • Most of his work on reptilian relatives seems to react with my two figures of Lizzie long-tail box
  • A soldier figure riding a horse has a unique approach to it’s culture since a historical event of the French Revolution
  • Using miniature ways of manufacturing with all manner of structures like vehicles, tools and a wide of themes based only into fantastical bestiary
  • All of his life’s work were originally crafted and also conjured from wooden resources at the time of his imprisonment at St. Alban psychiatric hospital

Forestier was originally born from a farm in the year of 1887 at the Southeastern Lozere region of France, He also mentioned with enthralled plots involving with trains which leads him into trouble in 1914. Because his arrest were the reason he had placed an amount of pebbles on rail-tracks causing trains to derail, his action had landed him into curiosity at St. Alban psychiatric hospital at aged 27 and remained there until he died in 1958.

Overtime since Forestier’s imprisonment he had worked at a warehouse, kitchen and also to adapt with bust and medallions. During mid-1930s he began to craft his wooden objects into toy models for children of hospital employees, This reaction had an increasingly role of being complex to become an artist, who meant to go in great lengths or even depths of what gives me the potential manufacturing, build, shape and adorn his methods into old toys into something imaginary as figures just like my Lizzie long=tail box figures.

Imaginary themes used in Forestier’s experiment:

Describing with my French sculptor’s imaginary ideas which can create boats, winged creatures and different sorts of decorated generals that has a reflected side of Napoleon Bonaparte also to manufactured with buttons, string, tape, leather and even bones/teeth originated of certain mammals.

  • Said to had to carve their own personalizes with a life of my own creations
  • Took to his work seriously as he is meant to established a small workshop for use of perspective way
  • Able to adapt to his constructive approach of batched elements needed to influence Forestier’s role with such developments of wooden arts related with foam resources

Niki de Saint Phalle's influence

Niki de Saint Phalle’s research

Reading on a new project to continue my experiments into all kinds of cartoon arts, which gives me a critical direction of searching online for Niki de Saint Phalle. During my investigation onto Saint Phalle’s work were to explain her influence with multiple ideas, involving in the handling destructive forms of painting and how it might affect movement towards her artworks.

Basically to examine Saint Phalle’s methods:

  • Almost if her models seems to reflect onto humorist arts
  • Primary genre in Doodle arts is Comedy
  • Shown to develop her own way of abstraction
  • Describes on being one of fewer female monumental sculptors
  • Social commitment/model manipulation involving with large-scale designs like public arts

Niki de Saint Phalle:

Niki De Saint Phalle - The story of a free woman - YouTube

Born: 29th October 1930, Neuilly-sur-Seine, France

Died: 21st May 2002, La Jolia, California, United States

Periods: Modern art, Nouveau realisme

At the start of her journey when I’ve been searching online, Saint Phalle was originally named Catherine Marie-Agnes Fal de Saint Phalle. From her life as a sculptor she had a dramatic event that affected her after an assaulted by father at the age of 11 years old. The outcome of it leaves Niki unstable and disturbed, she took an opportunity of dancing since meeting an owner of modeling agency. Which Saint Phalle had agreed to take part of modelling followed by heavily encouraged by Hugh Weiss – American painter and to continue with fashion references at the manufacturing of biggest magazines.

After her career in fashion she’d retied at the age of 25 so that Niki would focus on becoming an artist although having a trouble life of being unaware of bad people.

Since starting into sculpture, Saint Phalle had been travelling in different regions between France and United States of America. But due to her suffering effects of a nervous breakdown at 22 – 1953 being sent to psychiatric hospital, to be operated into memory-altering electroshock treatment and through some of the toughest encouragements from psychiatrists Saint Phalle devoted herself to primary subject of art.

Niki De Saint Phalle’s life of feminist sculptural career:

Beginning on using the development into Niki’s methods of feminist modeling in a madhouse as she learnt on what to adapt on translating with emotions:

  • Fear
  • Hope
  • Joy

Followed by her journey she’d encountered any themes of inspiration involved in Saint Phalle’s history:

  • Knights of S’en Fout during the crusade
  • Tells the stories of Joan of Arc
  • meant to imaginative with medieval beasts
  • Shown against her fear of snakes at the event of “The Summer of Serpents”

On her new path of creation which had to involve onto depression of how to overcome the hatred of corruption, it meant to drawn with tumultuous period whilst launched into Niki’s technique and to outsmart her traumatized childhood through doodle painting and sculpture.

Les Tis (the shots) exhibition 1961:

In her exhibition of Les Tis (the shots) which had taken place at 1961, this involves on handling an shotgun to fire paintball rounds on her displaying prototypes as if she is mentally painting without handmade. That is the very reason of how she is expressing her own creativity in a emotional way – A form of charged explosions of abstraction.

Her critical role of building her childhood influence not only to made her work worldwide famous, she also provided her visual approach to help face her inner demons.

Mainly to engaged with the committed of the campaign:

  • Racial Segregation
  • Social injustices
  • AID
  • Women’s rights

Mentioned of many discovered a more deeper form into feminine world, as a result Saint Phalle’s art had become a critical inspiration of sharing a connection to feminist methods. Meant onto both sensual and empowering ways to help criticise conservative and traditional values, also she’d produced her very own structures of doodle feminist. Mainly to adapt onto a slightly approach to derogation French term during youth, it might be a direct influence of building such wonders of large-scales and it could be inspired by her close friend – Clarice Rivers. From Saint Phalle’s talent of a simultaneously method into painting, sculptor and film-director, by piecing together in most methods of autobiographical which had a heavy impact on her family.

  • Channeling from the absorbsion of anger and trauma at her childhood experience
  • Inspired by Gaudi’s Parc Guell-Barcelona Niki had created her huge sculptural park called Le Jardin des Tarot in Capalbio, Tuscany
  • Responded to her creation of her monumental modelling were originally inspired by Tarot Cards
  • Crafted from huge materials of ceramic, mosaic and glass
  • Most of her colourful work are up to fifteen metres high and were habitable
  • Helped to build her own artist residency at the construction of the park
  • Almost she’s building her work at the park in much large-scales that I could practice with them for my year 3 project

As years passed Saint Phalle had been working on various kinds of materials which are known to her violated health and safety guidelines, mainly to explain on its incredibly toxic fumes in daily basis and resulted to her suffered from influmed lungs at the cause of polyester dust whilst carving her sculptures.

  • Her work had simultaneously saved her and passed away
  • Died from respiratory failure in 2002 – aged 71
