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’s website:

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:

The gun-toting female artist who inspired Dior's latest show Womenswear |  Dazed

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

Origins of Mexican development Year 2: Sculpture

Day of the Dead origins in Mexico

In my approach of reviewing on one of my favorite holiday events, but in a inspiring way to do practical modelling from a primary genre of comedy to combine with a theme that goes bump in the night or spooky arts to reflect onto my sculptural journey in year 2.

From my chosen path to research on certain holiday’s in different countries/regions, is what I had examined into a country of Mexico because its culture are used to influence our thoughts of emotions like its focused on memories of whose who passed away during lifetimes. Which I found Mexican arts very fascinated to look at, because their festival arts had me fond of aesthetic colours to produce on any items or products like skeletons and skulls and the Mexican people named Día de los Muertos or translate in English – Day of the Dead celebrated every year on 2nd November 2021.

Day of the Dead (Día de los Muertos) - HISTORY
Day of the Deads | Mexico Photo Tours

When reading on the origins of Mexican’s Day of the Dead, are about digging up its roots of going into their early contemporary arts amongst many heritage throughout the United States. It once happened around 3,000 years ago where the Aztecs honored with their deceased in pre-Columbian Mesoamerica. In my critical response of how they originally used to examine on death, like when a person dies they travel to Chicunamictlan in most cases Land of the Dead where souls went on a journey to their final resting place.

Day of the Dead origins/website:

After my investigation onto Mexican’s origins involving with Day of the Dead, I felt the emotion of festive joy/sad when someone passed away but its our way of honoring the dead. To remember their love-ones family members brings the offerings of food, water and accessories to aid the deceased on their journey and that helps to keep their memories alive.

At my response into Mexican’s influence of festival arts, are what I could use my doodle techniques to transform my old-fashioned shoes into something zaniness like laughter and my manufacture of foam materials/equipment. Then to combine with cartoon patterns in acrylic methods to make them like 4D models, like the Mexican people used to decorate the graves as their beloved burial place and to absorb the festival’s love of colourful arts to skeletons appearance of pale textures also to use illustrations in my expressions into comedy development onto my Simpsons telephone models.

Culture influences in Mexican arts:

  • Mexican version of Halloween
  • Festival parties and parades
  • Border between spirit and real worlds
  • Offerings brought to burial graves
  • Reflected on Disney’s film Coco (2017)

Contextual diary 2

Moving onto my next slot of hybrid practitioners, who has influenced me of their recent techniques used to reflect on my original search in various genres like they are shown into stories and even from legends that are adapted to humanoid-arts.

Different genres of Hybrid movement:

  • Fantasy
  • Folklore-tales
  • Original animals in Greek and Egyptian Mythology

Reading on Kate Clark’s work on experimental models of transfusing a human face to a animal bodies, they meant to acknowledged to her primary theme of natural instincts which are also used for contemporary art and these can be absorb into my personally of face carving textures of humanoid skin patterns to have an impact with my related references of Na’vi people/Avatar.

Viewing on Clark’s work in transfusion of human faces to animal bodies, they really share to my inspiration of becoming a animal but some people might had fearphobia about this reaction and she showcased her models in her exhibitions.

Next up is Damien Hirst who was one of the young British artists to had achieve his way of manipulating on unnatural effects used in UK arts during the 1990s and is also an collector of interviewing with most of his models have an increased costs from his buyers.

His key elements are based on death which are kind of harsh, but its his direct way of being famous of a series of animal models incased in glassed boxes. At Hirst’s influence onto a reflected technique in “Spin Paintings”, which he created on a spinning circular surface and uses “Spot Painting” in random coloured circles.

Animal models incased in glass boxes:

  • Shark
  • Sheep
  • Cowl

Hirst’s website:

Looking at Walton Ford who is a American artist had been researching into monumental watercolors that is blended with editioned prints, as his technique are primary used on historical arts which is how both animals and hybrid creatures are treated as equals amongst intersection of human culture/natural-world.

Seeing Ford’s technique on large-scale paintings mainly to use his influence of illustration effects onto animals or hybrids, because it would seem his creatures are in a condition of their jungle or forest homes been destroyed by humans followed by forcing against an animal’s will of enslavement and what could impact into my environmental state for my humanoid inspiration.

Professional Research Visual exhibition/artstep

Online Exhibition/Artstep 2021

Doing an visual exhibition on artstep is about putting up my very own studio in technical development, as it’s almost like I am building a maze before I can explore its wide camera screen for when I click on a path to automatically move. After signing my profile onto artstep to make preparations of studio walls in different marked areas, to practice on my corridors and walls to place stands for my hybrid models.

To begin my visual exhibition on artstep, I must measure on how my studio walls can stand up whilst building different rooms or gallery sections as if I’m walking in a labyrinth of digital art-show and what I could memorize my path when sharing my finished models to my friends.

While putting up my gallery walls I need to place my sculpture stands on my chosen areas, because this allows my hybrid models to stand out like they are in a 3D/4D appearance just to set up their open spaces in each section to position my crafted models on 5 or 6 stands and to adjust on how my stands should act on my marked space.

By adjusting on how my showcased props can be neatly positioned, were to carefully move my stands in the center/corner of each gallery room which I can rotate to see the shadow tone shown on the floor and making them a bit big like medium scale next to their expanded boards where my models are placed upon.

Continuing to position my stands in each of the gallery’s sections, are what I should put my favorite hybrid models in place only to shape their scales depends on what my projects in foam will help to express the emotions of laughter to had an affect to my cartoon animals and what their reaction could be meant on zaniness from comedy influence.

When sorting out my last improvements to my visual gallery walls, followed by artifact stands to expand their scale of medium, positioned in rooms center/corners and boards to set my models on stage just to build my designs in physical development and upload them to my artstep’s software for my foam exhibition.

Even if I had trouble to upload my models as 3D objects, which I engaged on putting my designs on the exhibition walls where my starting position is at my Spyzilla and to continue with my 5 remaining models in different rooms of my gallery just so they don’t overlap the walls.

Here is my finished gallery called doodle hybrids, because it allows my imaginations to roam wild when I was fusing with unused items like a person stops using them. It enables me of transfuse with something old into monstrous development, as if I’ve been absorbing the influence of Frankenstein for my experimentation in foam, modroc and doodle painting only to make them stand out at my work-desk at home despite tight corners and to rotate my models in the physical world instead of digital setbacks on Artsteps.

Professional Writing

After my studies I would find jobs of doing illustration works, which is using digital manipulation of colours to my hybrids to help me practice on new textures and shaping their deep layers of scales, patterns or skin hides for my creation from old artifacts.

In other ways of building my career is starting my own gallery, because I’m intended of crafting my further models or portraits to sell just to earn money and if make loads to give to charities to help poor people/children.

Here is my evidence of building my own gallery which I am currently on artstep, because I would love to set my own large space to expand my artworks and sorting out equipment needed for practical handling.

By putting my models in place once crafted, is how I could organize my displayed stands for my hybrid models and to build my real gallery to set up portraits.

CV Evidence:

Here is my creative CV sheet of how my technique had lead me throughout my journey of becoming an artist, is about my related colouring could be a career of studying onto illustration, grades I’ve achieved in my previous colleges and what I can engage on organizing my own gallery after graduation.

To help achieve my designs I looked at a competition called Up-cycling which is active at DMU, because its suitable for all students based in Fine Art so that I should craft my hybrid models just to showcase one of them as I was adaptable of doing humorist development to my animal ideas with any young kids who are fond of comedy effects used in cartoon shows and how my childhood characteristics could react with my foam experimentation during my audience’s feedback to my models.

DMU’s Up-cycling website:

These are example of building their own models from recycled materials, which I could participate in DMU’s competition with my crafted models from hybrids only to manipulate into humorist effects and share my inspiration among young generations of artists.

Then searching on exhibitions to exhibit my models at New Walk Museum-Leicester but all of the galleries are Temporarily closed, so I must do an visual tour like organizing an artstep show to make it a reflection of the museum’s gallery and I would share my museum show to my audience once published to express my primary source of doodle painting along with my secondary of illustration arts.

Studio Review

Studio practice

In my term 2 journey of crafting my next project in sculpture, I continued to experiment on plastics because my audience really likes my early models-shoes and telephones in term 1 and thinks I’am in the zone of building something new but added with devastated outcome into monstrous imaginations.

  • My primary art genre in Comedy/humorist
  • Original hybrids in Greek Mythology
  • Worked in recent theme of Classical Styles
  • Meant to transfuse both unused item and mixed humanoids

Focusing my recent themes from North Warwickshire-previous college, to begin sketching up various ideas into animal/monster textures from fantasy, folklore tales, mythology and Sci-fi which they originally inspired me to come up with all kinds of hybrid ideas to go practical with reused-foam material.

Here is my evidence of practical drawings throughout the first half in term 2, I was really fond of animals from their favorite habitats and certain films like monster-verse. Which I’d used photograph-memory to absorb their textures, appearances and patterns whilst expanding my blueprints on the workbench-wall and criticise my selected ideas to build up to six figures used into my primary objective of mixing and matching with hybrid parts like being Frankenstein into reality.

After producing my hybrid ideas, I need to manipulate the next set of recycled objects like finding an old bag. Then to work onto thanator’s front/back legs merged to my own foam bag via glue gun after trimming with foam-sander and adapting my doodle painting my animal patterns.

Primary method of cartoon manipulation:

  • Shared by the connection of Spyro the dragon characteristics
  • Examining on wings, scales and skin patterns
  • Meant to practical paintings with cartoon influence
  • Examined my favorite monster-Godzilla in Japanese legends
  • Mainly fond into Egyptian, Greek and Aztec

Helps to describe my chosen resource of foam to combine into doodle experimentation, meant on what characteristics can shape my model into a hybrid carrier when holding its handle, maintaining my cartoon lines to stand out not to look too messy and express’s funny emotions. Next is sticking my humanoid-dragon parts together, because I was really adaptable with my doodle personalities for Godzilla’s spikes and Spyro’s textures to absorb in my practical experimentation depends on how huge my model would look like.

This time I crafted a cereal box from my continuation of foam, then bend with metal wires into deer antlers which can be tricky to move its hard surface and my arms muscle begins to get bolder like doing the lift weighting. At first my Aunbikirin seems to reflect from a Japanese beast in ifs ancient culture in a samurai film-47 Ronin.

Next up is my sphinx figure which I had combine it with Na’vi DNA from its sci-fi influence on Avatar, followed by carving an Egyptian crown of the pharaoh and place it on the head part. Almost if my own hybrid is worshipped as a god and could had affect my technique of mummification my remaining models in modroc alongside keeping the colours very wacky.

This is my recording of my progress of foam carving with my humanoid blueprints followed by practical development in doodle carving and painting:

Contextual Research

Contextual Diary 1

My contextual research tells of my inspiration of artists in sculpture, like Mick Peter’s work of cartoon models in line drawings and to help criticise my talents of doing something humorist for my colourful manipulation into structures.

Peter’s website:

Peter’s exhibition:

By absorbing Peter’s talent of cartoon modeling in hard materials, they seem to interact with props in their own world like being alive which allows me to reflect his technique. Followed with combining creative shoes in foam and blend them in spooky-arts used for Mexican culture.

Here are my basic cartoon patterns used in my foam models then to sketch all-over my shoes/telephones, using painting in a humorist way I experiment on two prototypes in aesthetic colours that helps me to transforming old artifacts into something excited and scary to work on.

Searching on Frida Kahlo’s connection to Mexican arts from her self-portraits, because they showed me vibrant effects of her inspiration of bonding with animals particularly with monkeys and to absorb her culture into my foam-craftsmanship.

Website of Kahlo:

At my critical point of Mexican influence used in doodle arts, because I am fond into cartoon colours to paint both Dead of the Dead shoes/Simpsons-telephones and to continue my next theme of mixed media of recycled objects/foam into hybrids.

Reading on Marcus Coates who has an unique ability of mimicking voices of various animals, as if he is becoming an humanoid being and it helps him to perform rituals of spiritual effects, which Coates channels his inner voice into Shamanic reactions and to communicate between human and animal worlds.

Methods in Coates’s mimic-voices:

  • Shamanism-development
  • Chanting, drumming and dream-catcher
  • Wears different array of animal costumes

Planning on new hybrid diagrams once I drawn them, looking into artists related to my recent theme like Jane Alexander who is one of an important contemporary artists. Which helps to criticise on Alexander’s models by their expression of an unexpected twist, to examine on a person’s fearaphobia of becoming a animal because it felt on Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein and are putted together of our differences of each other in the outside-world.

Reading on Ken Little who works on mixed media of animal models, used from old-artifacts like shoes or many kinds of recycled textures to assemble his creations as replicas compelled to real animals. Furthermore, he carves his designs of animal masks from bronze material as if they are a reflection of a wonderland theme and how Little’s technique can affect my inspiration of hybrid arts blended with foam modeling.

Key elements in mixed arts in recycled animals:

  • Influenced by American-entrepreneur Walt Disney
  • Experimented on old items into reassembled models
  • Used in wonderland arts on animals also in bronze masks
  • Textures of skin/hides used in fabric materials
  • Related from paper-mache or modroc
  • Manipulated on shoe leathers

Title: Fine Art

Fine Art diary

Beginning my second year’s Fine Art, is nervous due to 2019’s pandemic but I must studying hard to had no stress/fear when building my confidence of adjusting to new challenges and to follow the rules of social distance bonded by UK government.

After my reunion with friends, I need to prep up my new studio on floor 8 via arts tower to know year 2 assignments based in sculpture and meet up with tutors Andy Price, Jamie Scott and Gino Attwood.   

Here is my chosen item within “Making A Thing” project:

Shoes and Telephone models:

Throughout my sculptural journey, I have created these remarkable models from my favorite resources in plastic foam followed by mixing abstract paints of cartoon patterns and outlined all edges of my designs as if they are expressing humorist emotions used in arts.

Day of the Dead:

Image result for simpsons arts


This is my evidence of Mexican culture, because it helped me to organize my favorite theme in Day of the Dead used for colour decorating and of examine on spiritual/spooky development mainly with skeleton arts to reflect with my foam shoes. Followed with my another theme of Simpsons to craft my next models of telephones, which allows me to manipulate each of the characters theme throughout their TV series for my unique patterns only on their humorist personally and to prep up my finished models at floor 8’s exhibition.

Continuing on my studies are to review on my lecture brief on Greenberg’s critic facts during Post-war Modernism, is to describe on which artist did their artworks of criticism settled in 1960s and to show who had been championed by Greenberg of what it could meant on representation in painting after World war 2.

Jackson Pollock:

Blue Poles (1952):

In my critical search of finding my selected artist I’ve found Jackson Pollock, who had used his talent on American arts also of being a major figure into abstract expressionism.

Pollock’s methods in physical development:

  • Used of experimenting on pouring or splashing liquid
  • Enabling to view and paint canvasses from various angles
  • Known to the people as ” Jack the Dripper”
  • Formed in colour-wrestling
  • All-Over painting also called “Action Painting”

Greek Hybrids:

After completing my Post-war Modernism essay, I would start to sketch my recent themes of hybrid arts which I once did in North-Warwickshire’s Duality Exam to describe on which new animal/monster blueprints needed to experiment with their differences from the normal beings and to reflect onto my talents of using humanoid abstraction.

Year 2: Sculpture

Sculpture 2020/21

Arriving at Vijay Patel-Arts tower to begin year 2 studies in sculpture, I would prep up my new studio on floor 8 whilst been given a brief to organize on my selected object in 20th-21st centuries and to describe my means of being an sculptor and how its taken a place in the world.

Project in Sculpture: “Making a Thing”

Items list in Thing project:

Ready-made objects:

  • Shoes or Trainers
  • My DMU bag
  • Fruit Bowl

Environmental objects:

  • Tombstones at church
  • Flower pots
  • Old benches   

It can be difficult but I’ve decided to choose my beloved shoe as my primary item, because I wear them into the outside world and to organize them at home to sketch my blueprints.

Primary object: shoes

Investigating onto my shoes is the first step, is how to build my early works while I was sketching up my creative ways of colour decorating and to help organize which methods to experiment with.


Sorting my foam materials to build my prototypes, is trimming off rough areas to make both of my design look nicely crafted and manipulate with mod-roc to show a skeleton appearance seemed pale but I can adapt to its cultural theme.

Next is using fabric arts to experiment with coloured tissues onto my festival shoe, which orange petals are telling me a reflected theme in Disney’s Coco and to combine both old-fashioned/humorist effect.

Prototype shoe:

Festival shoe:

After my prototypes I can organize my large set of reused-foam to mark, sand-off and positioned my toothpicks to put all of my pieces together in a whole stronger model without breaking.


Once I’d used mod-roc, I can start painting my cartoon patterns all around my design like decorating its pale texture into wonderful festive feeling of laughter and blended with spooky arts like live-action movements.

Mexican Trainers:

Second project: “Making A Space”

Reading my next brief to examining an empty space, because by calling out sound-waves/echoes when answering someone from the horizon and I can use it to my advantage of experimenting on telephones.

These are my new diagrams of building my early prototype, to help me prep up my final model with most of Simpsons pattern arts whilst I’m painting them.




Once my telephone models are completed, I must mount them on the studio’s wall for open space like my shoe models within the exhibition and to describe on their clashes of different cultures alongside my experimentation of 3D abstract colouring.

Since my completion of festive shoes/telephone designs, I took a different approach in foam manipulation were my early theme of hybrids because some of the animals are currently in the present and others in folklore-tales to my reaction of their origins in mythology arts. Which I had worked on their diagrams over term 2’s January and February via pencil-drawing, to help with my continuation in Sculpture is to absorb my humanoid/monster textures to experiment unused items as foam materials, to act as my models main bodies all in six designs in many doodle patterns to reflect from my blueprint drawings to build at large scale as if being amazed and frightened from monster-verse themes.
