Most of the time, I prefer the surfaces of my sculptures to be raw, rough, energized…..wild. I consider smoothing things out, but in general, I’m more interested, excited by and curious about chaotic surfaces.
With the Chimpanzee sculpture, I hadn’t decided how to treat the surface. They are hairy creatures, so how can I allude to that without describing each hair in a regimented and organized way? Today I played with markmaking. We will see if it sticks. So far, I am liking it.
