  3. 3. The artist: Kurt Weiser Contemporary ceramic artist Born in Lansing, Michigan, 1950 Studied at Kansas City Art Institute Received many awards for his artwork
  4. 4. What does the sculpture look like?  Abstract styled piece made out of porcelain clay with china paint glaze  Inspired by the styles of old master’s paintings  A dented sphere shape  Plays tricks on the eye
  5. 5. Analysis: You can walk around the sculpture as it is a dented and curved sphere. The shape for one is quite unusual. A demented sphere. There is a wide variety of detail used in the artwork e.g. the woman’s face and background has been painted smoothly and neatly, the brush strokes are clean and not obvious Movement is represented in the picture continuously. The direction of the woman’s head makes the eye follow and open up to the rest of the work. The artwork gives the effect of the woman swallowing a tree There is a definite sense of harmony in this work e.g. the earthy and deep colours used.
  6. 6. Interpretation: Weiser’s artwork is based on the relationship between man and nature. His idea Continental Drift was to create a contemporary ceramics piece inspired by the style of old master paintings. This artwork reflects a peaceful and quiet mood, which relaxes you. The artwork makes you have the desire to study every detail. The aspect of the natural world is reflected throughout this artwork. E.g. the colours used represent trees, mountains, water and the sky. The woman appears to be lying atop a landscape of mountains, with the top of a tree escaping her mouth.
  7. 7. What we like about thispiece of artwork: We love the detail he’s put into it and the depth of it. We love that the piece reflects so many emotions through every detail of the piece. It has really detailed pictures painted onto the abstract sphere. It is really abstract and interesting as it plays tricks on the human eye. It’s a very effective and beautiful sculpture.
