Fishing For Knowlege by angelkat-pawprints Fishing For Knowlege by angelkat-pawprints
This is my altered book piece that I did for my mixed media class. Oh and my roommate named the guy on the top Dan. He is Dan the Fisherman.

Please, in future, place this sort of thing in the right category: DeviantART/Traditional Art/Sculpture/Figurative... It's unnecessarily annoying for us art lovers and critics....

 

"Artisan crafts/ other" as a category for this is a bit like classifying khayyam, leonardo da vinci, isaac newton, rutherford, shakespeare, christopher wren, mozart, einstein, epstein, rodin and monet in the pigeonhole marked:  "for people that are fairly good at stuff...."

 

Look at this: your sculpture that is,( only an idiot would be so glaringly impolite, as to give it a lesser title...)

it is a well constructed; good concept with a good use of the books' boards to create re-inforcement for the structure; the use of letters being morphed into appropriate shapes like the blowfish "o", the crab/lobster "W" and the "book" doing a rhyming slang thing with "hook", it's just too delicious and too much fun to ignorantly stuff this away in an obscure filing drawer....under: "Artisan crafts/ other"

 

Furthermore, it is nicely photographed against a neutral background to emphasize the piece and not out of focus like so many; possesses excellent re-cycling credentials; And! , overall, is simply elegant idea/concept given form in a humourous way, with skill and a twinkle in the eye.  This deserves far more praise than it has thus far garnered!, much more....  Bravo, bravo!, I say ye yet again, Bravo!

Thank you for your critique. I am grateful that you took the time to observe this piece. For some people they look at the piece and only place a simple opinion. While you on the other hand took the time and broke down the whole piece. So I as well say bravo to you because, you are awesome.

This is so awesome, both idea and execution! I love the irregular cuts, the way you've hanged stuff to make it look like their floating in water (I love the pufferfish!) and Dan the Fisherman. :) I'm probably not the first person to say this, but seeing the cut books gives me mixed feelings. But I think that the books are also an integral part of the message of the artwork. "Fishing for knowledge" would not have the same connotations had you used different materials. Great work!
