Dipsticks - Colorful Creations by Nick van Woert


There was a time when Nick aka thesupermarket once ruled the spot of #1 COLOURlover. He has since moved to NYC to attend Parsons School of Design and has continued his creative genius in the physical world. His latest creations are awkwardly wonderful...

Dipsticks

each piece is made of 1 can of paint and a plastic figurine like a super-hero only none of them are super-heros. the sculptures are made by putting the two parts together. i dip the figurine into the can of paint until all of the paint has accumulated onto the figure. the empty can then acts as the pedestal for the finished work. the materials and the process are simple and fixed. the result of the process on the materials is unpredictable and out of my control. it's like an icicle forming on an overhang. simple, pointless, fragile beauty.

interesting. it doesn't seem that there is a whole can's worth of paint on them.

i'm a little confused as to how it's actually done...but, it's really neat!

I'm amazed they still stand, expert craftsmanship

They're kind of elegant in a bizarre sort of way. I agree with lizcrimson, it just doesn't seem like there's a whole can of paint there. It's interesting. I'm more curious, though, about how Nick came up with this idea.
