Modern sculpture: A new way to explore the human body
An undersea sculpture is making waves in a new field of science.
The “Titan,” which is set to open in New York City on March 15, uses a specially designed underwater model of a human body to paint scenes in water.
The sculptor, Sarah Hodge, said it was meant to inspire a new way of thinking about art.
“What we are doing is trying to explore this new concept of the human being as a vessel, and as a living organism,” Hodge told Reuters Health.
The sculpture is called the “Titans of the Pacific,” and is called a living “living body” due to its structure and arrangement.
The project was created by Hodge’s studio, the Mollie Hodge Group, and the artists have a new project in mind.
The artist has created a project called “The Artist in the World” in collaboration with New York sculptor David Farrar, who designed the “Bridgetown Mermaid” in New Orleans.
“We have been collaborating on the project with David for a while now,” Haney said.
“I’ve been trying to bring my own unique perspective and perspective of the world into this project.”
The Titan sculpture was commissioned in New Jersey and will be on display at the New York Public Library’s exhibition “Titles: The Art of the Human Body,” which opened last year.
“It’s very special to have an artist who is very concerned with how the human is, especially in a public space,” said Sarah Haney, who co-founded the Mollsie Hinkle Group with her husband.
“This is a project that is about human connection and how we relate to each other and our environment.”
The art was conceived in collaboration between Hodge and Farrars New York studio, which also includes sculptor William Shatner and musician Chris Cornell.
Hodge is known for her work of underwater art.
She was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize for her 2010 painting “Pillow Talk.”
The artist is hoping to raise money for a new exhibition of her work in New London, Massachusetts, the home of the “Swan Lake” submarine that sank during World War II.
“The Titan was created in partnership with David Farrow, a great friend of mine, to raise awareness about this project and this exhibition,” Hody said.
The artworks have already been exhibited in New England, where they were on display in the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., before heading to the Molsie Hinkys.
Hodge said she was inspired by the idea of using a living body to inspire people.
“My artwork has always been about a human connection, and how people can connect to their environment,” she said.
“There is a lot of water in the world, and I wanted to make it clear that it is not something to be used for comfort.
It’s something to bring people together.”
