Cubist Construction by AtomicHepcat Cubist Construction by AtomicHepcat
Another design project.

We had to go downstairs to the woodshop and build a wood sculpture version of a cubist painting. Unfortunately, I don't know the name of the artist or the painting because the book I referenced was formatted strangely and it was written entirely in French. Does anyone know who painted the original?

This is my first time working with heavy machinery. As clumsy as I am, I'm surprised I didn't trip and land face-first in the belt sander or chop my hand off with the bandsaw. It was actually fun. Learning how to work with dangerous industrial equipment makes you feel like you've tamed a wild beast.

Plywood, screws, wood glue, black spray paint, and acrylics.

LOOOOOVE.
It looks... SO COOL! I don't know the original painting but it still looks interesting, especially with the lighting and the setting you've put it in. AND I LOVE ABSTRACT 'CAUSE OF THE BALANCE OF COMPOSITION IN SHAPE AND COLOR. So this is great :)

OH EM GEE! Thank you! :iconomgspongebobplz:
I'm glad the final product works well as far as design goes! I made about three different versions of this sculpture before I turned out this one and they all fell apart, WHICH MADE ME BE SAD. But building things out of wood is very rewarding once you get the hang of it.

*le gasp* did THIS one fall apart, too? That would suck if it did.

Actually, this one didn't fall apart. I figured out a way to build these things now so this one's built like a tank. The only problem is that it has two giant legs sticking out of the back to support it and now I want them off so I can hang this off something. They won't come off without splitting the wood.

Well, that's good.
I guess maybe you could saw the legs off? I dunno. If you hang it you should paint a huge backdrop for it to go in front of.

Thanks! :D It's really interesting to do things differently than I normally do for class. Really helps to expand my artistic repertoire.
