Shattered III  pencil drawing by arminmersmann Shattered III  pencil drawing by arminmersmann
Shattered III (center panel) pencil drawing

Drawing on hotpress wc board

I have changed my concept or simplified its presentation. It will work more like a classical triptych; large center drawing and two somewhat “mirrored” images on each side. I posted the left side a month ago one of the pair of “smashed” bulbs. (see gallery) The wires of these bulbs point out from the center image, which is larger and has a stabilizing effect. The outside images are 8” x 8” the center drawing is 8” x 16” I will post the whole triptych as soon as I can get a good shot of it together. In a very lose and abstract way it speaks to the biblical crucifixion.

Thanks for Looking

Nimra

what does the stone represent?

It’s the stone that breaks the bulb, God, the grim reaper, the end about to come. The tiny part of the ribbon is about to give, to end the energy the bulb has to offer, life.

Thank you
Armin

thank you for the explanation, I saw the -tiny- ribbon but I wanted to know what you were trying to express.

I really like the "peace before chaos" from a bulb who's not aware of the soon change of its state

nice work again

=)

It actually a carving made exclusively of butter, but there is no butter category on DA so I said it was a drawing, sorry.

awesome! it's so inspiring to see that this is a traditional piece. such talent just emulates itself from this piece. the way you have shown glass in all its clear glory is so beautiful. the concept of this piece is great as well and makes me wonder what the piece would have looked like if you drew it as the rock feel and shattered the bulb. it would be like a frame in still life. either way, fantastic work! these sort of pieces are very inspiring. :)
