Carol Skinner Art


Geckotui Gallery  
A bit about me and my art I live in Northland, New Zealand near the Northern Wairoa River. its weirdly bizarre how I reactivated my art journey. After a successful detached retina operation I started to see things in a different way - colours were brighter, forms more defined, shadows more intense and was inspired to I pick up my brushes again. After a visit to my artist nephews studio in Victoria, Australia my interest rocketed - the colors, the paints, the pastels and I was itching to get my hands on all the art materials. As I moved paint, pastel and oil crayons across the paper. I was hooked ! It is such fun to be a painter ! I couldn't put down the materials and returned from Australia with my suitcase full of paintings that I wouldn't...

"S@#%t faced colleague - we all know one !
Paint out that annoyance and frustrations - paint that ratty person with a Pinocchio nose, big mouth, or paint them out - you get the idea and if you are really annoyed you could carry the art therapy further ump up and down on it - some occasions may require several sessions of painting. Try it you will feel a stack better.

The earlier chicken man photos
As promised here is the earlier sculpture with the first paper covering there were two more layers on before this one covering the chicken wire base.

What is the mystery sculpture ?
OK - well, here he is ! Finally, the finished version - after several transitions from harlequin, aborigine on a corroborri - he turned out to be a Commando ! Painting him up in camoflage colours was almost worth all the initial drama of a major battle with constantly snarling chicken wire &being stuck to the workbench with paper mache. I undercoated the sculpture in multicolours and the finishing touch has a touch of gold mixed in with the camoflage colour.

The chicken wire sculpture !!!!
Recently I've been doing a chicken wire sculpture of a person in motion - haaaaahhhhhh If you think this was easy, forget it ! I have been doing this since the beginning of time I reckon I thought it'd be a piece of cake just sketch it out, cut out the chicken wire, cover it with paper mache and zip it over with some paint to my taste..
