Wire Contour Sculpture

A series of wire contour sculptures of diverse characters I envisioned existing in a parallel 

dimension. Each sculpture is constructed from a single coil of 2mm copper wire, wrapped in 0.5 mm darker copper wire to create dimension and texture. 

 

The sculptures are a play on blind contour drawings where the artist draws the subject without looking

at her paper, keeping the pencil on the paper at

all time.

This process lends to appreciate features

that stand out most of a subject, as well as subconsiously creates a unique character perceived by the artist.
