New York, NY - Carin H. Constant, prolific New York based artist and curator of ContantXposure.com, recently announced the upcoming release of new silver creations made using the lost-wax casting technique; a process that dates back to the Bronze Age.
The new, original designs from Carin H. Constant are hand-crafted and tooled with the lost-wax casting technique. Twelve new designs are complete and will be available on her website in late summer 2011.
Carin Constant has been producing art since 1975 and has been featured in various exhibitions, most notably in New York and Miami. Carin H. Constant originally made a name for herself in the art world through her Fine Box Art; interpretive creations utilizing sight, form and memory within the context of historical themes such as Greco-Roman Mythology, Aztec Images and Surrealist Existentialism. Carin H. Constant's work can be compared to religious box shrines; but also possesses a humorous dichotomy. Interestingly, these forms can be found in either the sanctuary of orthodox churches or along any roadside commemorating an accidental death.
The latest designs from Carin H Constant, in alignment with her prior use of historical themes, were created using the lost wax casting technique, a method widely used in Europe until the 18th century. The process used to create the latest designs by Carin Constant allows for intricate works using metals such as brass, bronze, silver and gold. The twelve newly created designs by Carin H. Constant are bronze and silver and feature such themes seen in her previous works such as Capri, Santos, Adirondack, and Aztec Heart.
The most widely known work of Carin H Constant was based in the concept of "Box as TimeMachine" and was achieved by incorporating moving elements and applying reflective surfaces within the interior space to imply perpetual mobility. The final "outcome" of the Box by Carin H Constant became a visual concept through the juxtaposition of new and old found objects. The new work from Carin H Constant, created using the lost-wax casting technique of the 18th century remains based in her foundation of combining new and old and will be an exciting addition to her already brilliant collection.
