Artist Research - Sarah Kaufmann & Percy Salazar

  1. 1. Environmentally friendly sculptures ARTEFACT
  2. 2. SARAH “The Cheese Lady” KAUFMANN ARTIST
  3. 3. <ul><li>We could not find much information about her but here are some basic facts about her </li></ul><ul><li>Born and grew up in Wisconsin </li></ul><ul><li>Has been cheese sculpting for 16 years </li></ul><ul><li>She is one of the main managers of a dairy farm in Wisconsin </li></ul>BIOGRAPHY
  4. 4. <ul><li>Sarah creates environmentally friendly sculptures by using cheese as her main component </li></ul><ul><li>The reason why she is interested in this because cheese sculptures do not go to waste, rot, does not cause pollution and does not use electricity to make them </li></ul><ul><li>Main inspiration – she grew up in Wisconsin where she was surrounded by cows, milk and cheese </li></ul>INSPIRATION
  5. 5. <ul><li>Sarah quoted </li></ul><ul><li>“ If you were born and raised in Wisconsin, surrounded by dairy cows, cheese factories and people who wear orange triangle hats as high fashion, you might think it would just seem…natural!” </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>The main purpose of her sculpting cheese is that she wants to educate people about the varieties of cheese </li></ul><ul><li>She wants them to feel the warm flavour in the audience's taste buds because cheese is used as a minority ingredient in most dishes, so we tend to miss out the flavour </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>The main ingredient of making the cheese sculpture is “CHEESE” </li></ul><ul><li>Other than that, the artist uses environmentally materials like knifes, spoons, spatulas, toothpick, knife, graters etc </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>As cheese sculpting only requires skill and basic carving equipment, the process is very easy </li></ul><ul><li>you get a block of cheese, and let your imagination go wild! </li></ul>THAT’S NO IT!
  9. 9. <ul><li>The block of cheese is kept and designed in a temperature controlled room </li></ul><ul><li>The artist creates the basic overall shape and then removes any excess cheese </li></ul><ul><li>Then the basic features start to take place </li></ul><ul><li>Once the shape and the basic features are ready, then comes the details ( the longest and the hardest part of the creation of cheese sculpture) </li></ul><ul><li>when the sculpture is ready, it is left in a lower temperature room for the cheese to harden </li></ul>
  10. 10. EXAMPLE OF SCULPTURES
  11. 16. ANALYSING SCULPTURES This sculpture does not have an particular title but it is a sculpture of a sheep bearing the words “merry dairy Christmas” This particular cheese sculpture is trying to promote dairy products in the Christmas season <ul><li>The possible messages that this sculpture is trying to convey are: </li></ul><ul><li>`the animal can denote the fact that killing animals/hunting too much can cause an alteration in the food web (natural cycle of animal life) – peace in their faces </li></ul><ul><li>The animal can denote, do not kill sheep to use for clothing, accessories/product </li></ul><ul><li>The process of making these accessories can contribute to global warming due to the amount of electricity used to make them </li></ul><ul><li>We should use these animals for natural causes (eg: making milk/cheese) – “Merry Dairy Christmas” ( try and do a good cause during Christmas) </li></ul>
  12. 17. Here is a little clip to show you the artist at work
  13. 18. Percy Salazar ARTIST
  14. 19. <ul><li>The artist is concerned about global warming so he creates sculptures related to cities, abstract, environment based issues </li></ul>INSPIRATION
  15. 20. <ul><li>The purpose of creating ice sculptures is that he wants to show everyone how global warming affects our planet earth </li></ul><ul><li>That is why he sculpts all his ice sculptures and leave them in a hot temperature place </li></ul><ul><li>As soon as the ice melts, that denotes how are world and ice caps are melting </li></ul><ul><li>he wants people to take that message in and try and do something to prevent global warming </li></ul>PURPOSE
  16. 21. MATERIALS USED <ul><li>The main material used if ice </li></ul><ul><li>Saws, Ice sculpting material </li></ul><ul><li>Chisel, render etc </li></ul>
  17. 22. <ul><li>The ice is kept in a temperature controlled room </li></ul><ul><li>The basic shape is carved/chiselled </li></ul><ul><li>Special equipment is used to carve and make the detailed features </li></ul><ul><li>The finished product is stored in a lower temperature room </li></ul>PROCESS
