Tomasz Hueckel’s WILD CUTOUT ART GALLERIES

ALL THAT YOU SEE here

is cut out from aluminum sheets 0.3 mm thick, using nail scissors and a screwdriver and a hammer to punch the metal in order to cut inside of the sheet. I describe how I proceed in one of the stories (in Behind the Scenes) named Visiting Julia. So click on the tab Behind the Scenes, above to find it.

Fishes

Fish is great fun to sculp, or cut. They have a great potential for invention, because we do not have very good idea how really they look like. Some of the fish here, called “Animals for the climate change” are half ocean – half desert creatures. One of the photo shows a Forest aquarium, with all the fish I had at that time arranged as a Calder type “mobile” over our picture-window. The air – condition outlet nearby provides an air current in which the fish turn perpetually in infinite configurations.

Scenes, Sites, Stories

I started these picture-format cutouts quite late, except for # 1, that is in 2011. I tried to tell a story that appealed to me. I was also challenged to represent several different actors: animals, birds, trees, occasionally a human. For instance how to represent a tree in a cutout was not an obvious thing to me. It is still not obvious today, so I am trying new ways each time. Well, it is fun. The aim also was to make something that could be hanged as a picture.

Animals (and Birds)

This was my initial line of business. Thus, some of my items here are rather early shapes, and thus are my most spontaneous creations. They can be retraced back to a drawing (shown here as #1) that I did in 1995, with a handsome animals being protected by the holy cloak of an unspecified saint patrone, like in this medieval Italian tympanum of Madonna della Misericordia, outside the Scuola dei Calegheri (shoe makers) in Campo San Tomà, in Venice, Italy .

Some other animal  images were preceded by my diligent zoological studies. But, I can guarantee you, none of these animals is sad. Some may be sort of contemplative (like  the Hypopothamus).
