Beasts of the chip
The animals from the chips
Siberian sculptor Sergey Bobkov, makes the work of chips - sculptures of animals in natural size.
It is just unreal nice.
Krasnoyarsk master, normal school regular teacher provincial high school. He is 55 years old, for his life had time to try this myself a lot – was woodcarving, wickerwork, ceramic art, even furniture. But apparently I wanted something "special" to duplicate the ease and naturalness of their exhibits of animals and birds. So if the pens some reverent and air, if the coat is something fluffy with bristles. Material unexpectedly – it appeared to be wood shavings, at first simple, then, according to the results of trial and error, specially prepared. Conventional chip – to-brittle structure, and to achieve plasticity, Sergey Bobkov invented to soak wooden sticks in water for a few days. He uses basically the shavings of Siberian cedar, but sometimes adds and beech, and willow. The chip is removed, a special is rolled, can you imagine the smell in his Studio? ...
The photo shows how complicated his work sculpture – every feather in its place, the right size and shape. Besides that nice and luxurious, and still anatomically as authentically as possible – the wizard examines the habits and anatomical features of his eagles, owls and sable. Sometimes the creation of one strand of the sculpture takes up to six months; wool sabalka, for example, consists of thousands of fibers 30, and for the eagle it took about 7 thousand different feathers.
Sergey Bobkov said that his work is the complete opposite of these stuffed, dead animals. The Scarecrow is a result of the death, and his bonded figurine is a birth, a whole philosophy turns.
Your creations wizard puts up, but only sometimes and only in very local scale. But he's got big – he hopes that in his home country he will notice and support you, will help open conceived arts centre (with exhibition hall, a large workshop, a hotel for visitors wishing to study, just to admire or to buy something). Really really want this to work, and about Sergey Bobkova learned not only we, but also abroad, because there are things to marvel at and admire.
