Victor is complete! Well his armature is anyway. No small accomplishment. He stands over two metres tall.
Thanks to my gorgeous man for spending arduous hours bending, cutting and welding metal rods and poles to get him exactly how I envisaged him.
Victor has been two years in the making.
He began as a sketch submitted to the Mornington Peninsula National Gallery for a group exhibition.
A welder was purchased to make his armature. After which Adam and I thought that perhaps a relatively large space may be a good idea in which to bend and cut and weld metal pieces.
So Adam and I set about to create and build the workshop. Now complete.
Adam started the armature of Victor two weeks ago, working pretty solidly as often as he could on him.
So now here he is, inside the house, standing here for his first photo shoot, before being placed into the studio ready for a textile makeover.
Yay! Stay tuned. I’m going to record the process along the way. Promise.
