This sculpture is a part of 2019 Sky Whale series. My love for dynamic and movable sculptures is displayed well in this series. Most sculptures tend to be quite static, but I like to design them to be eerie and movable. This is why a lot of my sculptures are designed to be suspended in the air. I find if most fitting, especially for these Sky Whales as it creates a feeling of flight.
Majority of my art goes through color phases, this whale is a part of purple-gold phase. I think it’s quite a beautiful combination, and I tend to get carried away with my purples. The whale and the stand are made out of polymer clay, then they’re painted and varnished. Whale is removable and can be placed to face a certain direction or hanged from a different stand or wall hook for example.
Hi! My name is Oksana Ossipov, and I’m a visual artist and photographer. I was born in Ukraine and currently reside in the area of Dallas, Texas. My formal education includes a BFA in Digital Media Art from San Jose State University. After moving to Texas, I started to focus on my fine art skills and figurative art in particular. I studied for 5 years under Michael Mentler at the Society of Figurative Arts. Through my life, I’ve also acquired a multitude of skills that include web development, sculpting, photography, art studio and business management, and baking awesome blueberry scones!
I’ve been trying to fully devote myself to the art over the past few years. I’m trying to learn and practice as much as I can. However, the workshop, class, and art supply costs present a certain financial challenge. If you like my work and want to support me, I would truly appreciate it! I have a shop full of artworks and creations, but even just sharing my art or social media pages would help a lot. Thank you so much!
