ALL MEDIUMS ART
Julie Brown, oil.
Adam and Eve
This is the piece I picked up near Vermont Marble Company in Proctor, Vermont. It was tossed to be used as the road bed because it had cracks. What the hell did I know? I discovered the direct carvers of the 20th Century who unlike Rodin who had his clay sculptures reproduced by Brunos in marble, wanted to carve themselves and let the thing look like stone. I carved a Modernist head with simple features keeping the boulder shape. But after a month or so, I saw another figure inside. Hence my understanding of Michelangelo’s uncovering carving method began. The egg head shape has remained but the uncovering /discovering process is evident too. It is called “Egg Head Muse”. Russell Backer from Somerville bought it.
