Abstract Art: FLAT 3-D SCULPTURES
by Gatica 2015 

  At right: The 3-D flat sculptures you see below are new and  something the artist 
has been developing and experimenting with recently, and will continue into 2015

Flat 3-D Sculptures At right >> you see more of what the artist is trying to achieve, interesting - organic looking flat 3-Dimensional art pieces. This piece was the fourth experiment (after the three, below), and the closest to what the artist is trying to achieve in sculptures. The following pieces are expected to be variations of this style, with varying textures and color schemes which the artist is still experimenting with. Notice the FINAL piece at the bottom of page. 

These are the artist's version of RECEPTUAL ART (Go to read on this): It was the artist's intention to make  them look organic - just like the smaller stone sculptures they support,  that were formed naturally (Go to see Rock/Stone Sculptures).

Notice the texture and how they are painted to enhance the texture. These pieces are approximately 1/2" thick and around 20 inches tall/round (as per the mold)  and (not counting the stand).Artistic Art Pedestal 1.jpg (464901 bytes)

The idea for the Flat Sculptures seen here resulted when creating the above artistic art pedestals, which due to a 'good accident' while working them in the mold, they got the unique texture seen here. Since then, Gatica is trying to recreate the texture on a flat 3-D  format resulting in what you see in the Flat 3-D Sculptures featured here.

At right: You can see more samples of these experiments.. Each is unique

 The one at right was another experiment. In the above three images you are seeing experimental pieces in trying to recreate the same special effect obtained while creating the round pedestals on a flat-3-D format. These pieces are approximately 1/2" thick and around 20 inches high/round (not counting the stand). They are made of the same Hydro-Stone material as the sculptures. As you may guess, there is a different approach to creating them that the round pedestals and the experimentation is still continuing on these pieces

Final Piece>>>: The one at right is the latest and the F FlatCLOSEUPA (2).jpg (228796 bytes) best example of what the artist is aiming to achieve - to create a series of these Receptual - flat 3-D sculptures withF FlatSculpture.jpg (59138 bytes) the unique
organic texture.

The piece is mounted on a stucco pedestal, created for these pieces
