The Konovalenko Project: Day 2 Update!

Posted 3/27/2012 12:03 AM by Steve Nash | Comments

Today I conducted more interviews with Ms. Konovalenko, focusing on the Museum's sculptures and family archives. Rick took photographs of a Fisherman statue and various clay sculptures that Konovalenko used as models for the stone sculptures. Note the rabbit -- the pencil marks indicate areas that the artist was going to remove to complete the piece. The Accordion Player is a clay model that Konovalenko painted to show what he wanted the finished piece to look like; he would then find gemstones to the color and texture of the model. Look at the expressive face in the close-up -- he really made clay and gemstones come to life!
