Abi Katon avatar
Abi Katon ...and myths continue to be immortalized, interpreted by a new style, this is indeed a complete and brillant character representation Jos!

Jos Letschert Jos Letschert Thank you so much Katon. Your comment and compliment mean a lot to me. The most difficult part indeed is the mental translation of a supposed character into the originally flat material.

Torsten Richter Quite a dark interpretation of a partially bright character.I like a lot how you bring the duality of life into expression.
17 June 2018 at 11:31am
Jos Letschert avatar
Jos Letschert Thanks Torsten. Yes, a bright character indeed with dark elements. The fact of being the goddess for childbirth for instance did not stop her to throw her first born son Hephaistos from the Olympus, because she found him too ugly.

Henk Aalberts opnieuw zo treffend in het uitbeelden van een karakter! Overigens wil ik Beate ook wel eens prijzen voor de sterke belichting van je sculptures, Jos, want ik weet hoe sterk de invloed van licht kan zijn... groet, Henk

Jos Letschert Henk, dank je wel voor je commentaar en compliment. In het bijzonder waardeer ik jouw aandacht voor het fotowerk van Beate. De wijze van belichting en fotograferen maakt inderdaad zeer veel uit. Zeer gewaardeerd!
18 June 2018 at 11:37am
Jos Letschert avatar
Jos Letschert Thierry, thanks a lot for your comment and compliment. Maybe the dark look has also to do with the fact that Hera is often called the 'Cow-eyed', by Homer e.g. Another issue is that it is rather difficult to design the beauty of women in corrugated cardboard. If she would be still active as a goddess I think she would change me in a cow, or some other animal, as a kind of punishment.

18 June 2018 at 12:11pm
Jos Letschert avatar
Jos Letschert Wilma, dank voor je compliment en voor je observatie. Ja, dat kettinkje, dat zijn inderdaad details die er toe doen. Het zijn de tedere accenten bij het relatief gezien wat grove materiaal.

Sabine Hanse avatar
Sabine Hanse Gute Zusammenarbeit von Künstler und Fotografin - Hera... auch Göttin der Schwestern.. bestimmt :-) Es ist immer wieder überraschend, wie so grobe Strukturen und eher derbe Ausgangsprodukte ein so gefühlvolles "Endprodukt" ergeben können. Darf ich mal fragen, wie groß der Kopf eigentlich ist, und was das für ein Wabenmusterding auf ihrem Kopf ist? Nur um mal so ein Gefühl für die Relationen zu bekommen.. Schönen Gruß, Sabine
28 September 2018 at 08:40am
Jos Letschert avatar
Jos Letschert Sabine, danke für deine schöner Wörter, auch das du die Fotografion erwänt. Alles entsteht aus Wellpappe, richtige Schichten, keine Leimmasse. Mit einem Klebepistol klebe ich Schicht auf Schicht. Meistens säge ich dann wieder Teile weg und verklebe die wieder irgendwo anders. Diese Hera ist üngefär 50 cm hoch meine ich. Sie steht in meinem Atelier momentan und ich bin in mein Arbeitszimmer Zuhause, kanne es nicht präzise nachmesse. Die breite ist so etwas 35 cm. Das Wabenmuster ist auch Wellpappe. Ich kaufe große dicke Platten wellpappe bei Boesner (Künstlerversand), die Platten säge ich dann wieder durch. Dadurch entstehen biegsame Teilen die ich dann wieder verklebe. Einige andere Figuren sind viel größer. Priamos zB., ich habe davon nur der Kopf gezeigt bei AL, ist ungefähr eine Meter hoch und mit Sockel ungefähr anderthalb Meter.
