About this creation
My affection for the brick is getting known in my home town, finally. Last summer, I was asked to create "a few works of Lego art" inspired on life at the farm. It was for a one day expo celebrating the farmlife. I was one of 44 artists on 20 different locations/ farms.

Here's what came out. Sorry if some pics are a tad blurry, all works were presented at the spot. No museum, just an old fashioned shack. Hence the poor lighting.



I called this "24/7" and it's inspired on the hard work, the dramatic way of life, depending on seasons, weather and market. It's all there, just filter out what you like...































This is called "Harvest" and calls for a more traditional building style. I just wanted to show two extremely different worlds of interpretation. This is the more romantic side.











Visitors were surprised that Lego can be used for art purposes and the brick can be molded into such creative interpretations. It certainly is quite a different thing than sculpting, painting or baking vases.


Let me know what you think!

That dripping down the side of the table was inspired! Thanks for sharing! ~ Chris.

Quoting David Alexander Smith I love the surreal approach to your theme. The land face and giant corn are great. I'd be really interested to know how you get to be asked to exhibit lego art?
I link my creations on facebook and make a window creation at home for every time of the year; like christmas, easter, halloween. The rest is word advertisement ;)

A perfect way to bring your art to a wider audience, I'm sure you caused a few surprises.

As usual, fantastic work. The dripping face looks awesome, and the way that it fits the pedestal perfectly is really nice. Make sure to post a link to this in the Lug thread, as Dave needs more shows to use.

Very cool! It's great that more people discover our hobby every day, and what better way to do so? I love your corn too! And about that "dripping face", I find it ironical that you used the "21st century schizoid man" to depict a traditional way of life ;) Well done, mate!

Quoting David Roberts 24/7 is rather disturbing, especially the screaming red face, dripping down the display stand. I like the giant corn cob in Harvest, a very creative bit of building! It's great that your taking your Lego out into the wider world and getting recognition for it.
Thank you, David, it was a good day for new courage. The dripping face as you call it so perfectly is heavily inspired on the cover of "In the court of the Crimson King" by King Crimson. A piece of art I'm definitly going to tackle someday...

Congrats on your showing. Cool builds! Perfect that it was set up in a farm utility building! :)
