Exposition Girona 1809-2009

After I finished the two pieces for project Girona I didn't do much modelling these weeks. I went with the family on some holidays and recovered from the lack of sleep and stress. The figures were brought to the exposition about 200th anniversary of the war against Napoleon. And now my figures are standing between the others figures of master sculptors and painters. Not all the pieces did arrive yet but I took some pictures of the ones that were there. I was very happy to see my figures standing there, although they are not the top quality as others there. But creating original figures was something I always wanted to achieve. This are my first two, still a lot to learn but it was a great experience. Time to make some more figures. Here are the photos:

A stock figure of Art-Girona moddeled by M.Saez and painted by J.Masferrer, J.Pelegrin and F.Ruiz who did also some coversion on his figure.

The figure was sculpted and painted by Lydie Queyroi. A beautiful figure!

Another masterpiece sculpted by J.Avila painting by L.Esteban

This beautiful figure was sculpted and painted by master J.Gamarra.

Here a picture from my husar de San Narciso.

And the second figure from me on the right. The same figure on the left is sculpted by R.Garcia Latorre and painted by Joan Masferrer.

This figure was sculpted and painted by G.Giordana

Here the second creation of Jesus Gamarra.

This is also a stock figure from Art-Girona painted by J.Gamarra and F.Ayala who did also some conversion work.

And the last one of the serie which was sculpted and painted by master R.Navarro.

I made some more pictures but they are on my other camera.

Gefeliciteerd Marcel.
Je schilderwerk doet niet onder voor de anderen.
Enige kans dat ze volgende week in Eindhoven te zien zijn?


Marcel Boerrigter said...

Steve many thanks! Indeed very beautiful creations by the other participants.

Robert-Jan: Hartelijk dank voor je complimenten! Helaas zijn ze volgende week niet in Eindhoven.
Ze zijn sowieso tot eind Oktober in Girona en daarna gaan ze waarschijnlijk naar een volgende expositie.

Dank je Robert-jan, ik ben er ook best wel content mee. Al had ik niet verwacht dat mijn figuren het zo goed zouden doen. Volgend jaar maar in een andere klasse.
