lauren armstrong – material alchemy

November 16, 2009

The first artist I thought of when we started talking about material alchemy is Scott Fife. I saw a show of his in Seattle of these amazing heads made out of archival cardboard. This particular show was called “The Idaho Project.” Each sculpture was a Roman bust-style portrait. You can’t tell what the material the artist used until you take time to look really closely at the subject. I think it is amazing what he can achieve with a material as simple as card board!
