Re: Artist defends surfing sculpture amid criticism
The technology for bodycasting is as old as bronze sculpture. The fact that it was not done in ancient greece or other periods to produce the beautiful figurative art of those times indicates that bodycasting is not up to the task of manifesting greatness in art. Not that it is impossible, just improbable. Maybe that is why I'm not too worried about it as a technique. My liveliehood is not threatened by it. I'm more concerned about the slipping standards that are so pervasive. As an example, American coinage in the last decade has gone from real bad to terrible. Once proudly bearing beautiful artistry, the most recent attempts look like casino tokens. Help!!!
