Re: Is bodycasting really art?

In another thread I have come upon an artist "Isabel Mcllvain" at
and I thought how does she sculpt detail like that? I am very impressed with the work, thinking that I have found another mentor, another sculptor that I need to study and learn from. Then I find out it is a body cast, my initial reaction is disappointment, but then I have to say that I think it is beautiful and technically this is excellence. The poses are simple but I think that the work is beautiful. As casts I wonder if I can learn something from her work, to me it is like working with a live model, but I do think that there is something that I can take away from seeing her work.

Art that does not attempt the impossible is not performing its function. W.B. Yeats
