Threading a nail

So those of you who are reading this blog know that I am easily amazed by the patience that some artists have to create their works.  Well i found another artist that has that phenomenal patience.  Kumi Yamahita is a New York artist that uses white boards, galvanized nails and black thread.  That is it!!

She takes that single-unbroken strand of black thread and winds it around the nails.  So anywhere that the thread gets darker is just her weaving it around the nails as many times as she needs to to get the denisty that the picture needs.  I hope that makes sense.  Can you explain it better?

She calls the overall collection "Constellation"  any ideas why that is the title of her show?  You know I have to ask if you could do this?  And no I am not going to have you do this, at least not this year.

Playing with your food

So I am sure that at one point or another all of you have played with your food.  Well the young artist Hong yi has taken playing with her food to an all new level. I saw her plate art this weekend and I thought it was amazing and had to share it with you.  She uses a plane white plate as the background to show off her food and images.

So can you figure out what type of foods she uses for most of her pictures?  Do you have a favorite?  Or which food do you think made the most creative plate?  Can you think of a food that would make a great picture?

Sticks and Strawa

I hope this year I have shown you all sorts of items that could be used to create art, well I have another interesting art sculpture.  This time they are made out of sticks and straws.  I thought they were kind of cool.  But I would love to know what you think?

Can you guess this famous person?
