Sponge Bob deconstructed


I made this out of steel wire and epoxy resin and was not pleased w the result–too much, too intense. I knew more work had to be done when my daughter said that if I painted it yellow it would be a nice rendition of Sponge Bob. And maybe I should add a couple of tiny arms too–real funny.

So I set about chopping it up, reconfiguring smaller sections into individual works and although I am not near finished, I’m on a much better path. I will post again when they are finished and painted. (See below)






As I work I am trying to remain open to different compositions




Same weave

Same weave

These are two pieces of the same polycarbonate weave. The application of the paint gives them a very different look. Trying to think about what to do next with these.

Larger chunk of weave


This is a larger piece of the polycarbonate weave. Staples are visible in columns. I will paint just a little so that form is more defined. I am happy with the use of materials. Polycarbonate is a strong, light material used in all sorts of products from your eyeglasses to bulletproof “glass.” I will let this sit, then paint, maybe a light gradation from color to clear.
