John Powers creates geometric installations and sculptures that use simple blocks to form interesting patterns with depth and form. The zoomed in view of these pieces makes them look like more like computer generated images than tangible art. Powers states, "I very much like that my work looks digital, that it reflect my exposure to the technologies around me, but I like also that it is handmade out of base materials."
Subtractive Styrofoam Sculpture: Students look at examples of abstract sculpture made by Japanese-American artist Isamu Noguchi, and create an abstract sculpture that represents an emotion through color and form. - See more at: www.thesmartteach...
Students in 9th grade looked at the work of sculptor Isamu Noguchi and created a subtractive abstract sculpture that represents an emotion. Focus was on creating a sense of movement by manipulating form, and expressing an emotion through the use of color. We started with 3" x 3" x 8" blocks of dense styrofoam, carved with exacto knives. After they were smoothed out, we primed them with gesso and used acrylics to paint them.
