Shooting the OX
I have been shooting Cynthia’s sculptures for many years, today I got to photograph her newest piece, the OX from her series Unsustainable Creatures series.
I love the skill in drawing with repurposed plastic forms, and the performance aspect, I have to find just the right lighting conditions for these the creatures.
Of this series Cynthia says: “In the “unsustainable creatures” a sense of humor pervades the representation of domestic animals made from recycled and re-purposed plastic containers and objects. Part of the fun in making the work is looking for shapes that will represent a head or a hoof, and then retaining identifiable aspects of those objects, whether laundry detergent bottles or take-home containers for pie. Friends and neighbors contribute their recyclables for use in this ongoing project, and much material is culled from dumpsters and thrift-stores.”
