Face Made of Hands___by Patrick Arrasmith



Hands,
Wrists,
Forearms borne,
Gentle grip,
Or clenching hard,
Fingered lips a mouth surround,
All to form a face made of hands.

Bather

Fair wind

Skilled in simplicity, of form and message, master of black-and-white wood engravings, the art of Rockwell Kent.

Out of Order___ by Grzegorz Szczerbaciuk


Headless,
Catlike creature,
But human born,
Shaped supple muscle,
Ligature,
Bone.

Nude,
Not naked,
Uniquely complete,
Completely unadorned.

Each hearing a varied verse,mesmerised by the poetry of the nude.

Increasing beauty, once invisible to mind's eye.

Le Sacre Du Printemps__by Paul Mellander


Like a Vision from an ancient time,
A figure balanced upon a column marble,
Below rites of spring practiced are.

He speaks,

"All hear me! Rejoice and make merry.
Arise Narcissus, return Demeter from Hades' realm,
And Let Stravinsky's music fill my ears".


More of Mr. Mellander's very classy classical style work can be seen here and here.

Nude 8 ___ by Raul Võsandi


Seemingly random, crescent shaped, strokes on paper,
clustering deeper here, more lonely there, arranged by intellect's breeze,
much like rust colored snowflakes, creating layers and drifts upon the landscape,
like an image imagined in a cloud, Nude 8 takes form.

Simple technique, simple forms, beautifully executed.

Torso v2 ____ by Tecciztecatl


A chunk of stone, much like a puppy at a pound, awaits the right person to claim it
as his own. The sculptor, with chisel at the ready, begins the take away process.
Unlike those that work in clay, material removed cannot be replaced. His vision, hidden in that chunk of ordinary rock, seeks revelation. He is able to brush aside the veil of stone and bring to our eyes a creation, once only seen the minds eye of the artist who works this magic in stone.

Ode on a Grecian Urn - Keats

I thought it appropriate to begin with this since it is the source of my profile.
This tondo was an inspiration for a sculpture that I did recently. I love
how the form fills the circular motif.
