After weeks of adjustments and refining, finally got to rest the third piece in the Concordia series. Concordia 3 is a sculptural assemblage made of found metal objects, clay, plastic toys and acrylic paint. A small switch mechanism, also a remnant of and found on a toy, plays a 10-second ditty when switched on– a rather odd addition to the whole piece which looks like a rusted piece of metal object.
I am taking a temporary break from the Concordia series to switch gears for a different kind of sculptural piece which I am preparing for an art exhibit.

CONCORDIA 2, the second in the series of mixed assemblage made of plastic toys, clay, wood,metal and acrylic paint. Small moving parts are also incorporated, manually operated through a wind-up key..
This piece will also form part of the seven works to be exhibited next month at the De Buytensael Gallery in Arnhem. It took several weeks to apply the layers of paint and textures, but finally got the right shades. The follow-up piece is currently undergoing the last phase of painting and textures.
