These words fit the prolific artwork of Niki De Saint Phalli, France, 1930 – 2002. De Saint Phalli’s joyous work first came to my attention in 1983, whilst travelling, when I discovered the newly finished Stravinsky Fountain outside the Pompadour Center in Paris.
I was excited by the revolving lips that squirted water, the top hat and bright colors that dazzled. Students learn of the artwork of new realist, Niki De Saint Phalli.
The students respond to her artworks by developing sculptures inspired by the artist, their own experiences and imagination. Students explore sculptural visual media and extend their skills in modelling figures, manipulating the art elements of shape, color, line, texture and form.
Before starting this unit students should become familiar with drawing the human body moving. Introduction Show students the artwork of Niki De Saint Phalli.
Students discover background information about Niki De Saint Phalli. Suggestions include assignments, PowerPoint presentations, mind maps and brainstorms.
Key points are Niki’s infatuation with the artwork of Saudi and her visit to PARC Quell in Barcelona where she stated she met her master and her destiny. The students then choose one of De Saint Phalli’s art works that particularly interests them.
They discuss why they like that particular art work, download copies of it and glue them into their visual diaries. A quick flick through the above websites will show variety in subject.
There are sculptures based on famous figures from sport, music, mythology, the Bible and Tarot Cards. Materials required include armature wire, newspaper, masking tape, string, wire gauze, Monroe, acrylic paint, Part non drip gloss varnish, tacky glue, sequins, plastic mosaic pieces.
Tools required include wire cutters or pliers, scissors to cut Monroe, empty yogurt or ice cream containers. Reinforce the safety feature of placing a loop at the ends of the wire to avoid an eye being poked out.
Step 2- Support the body outline of wire with horizontal wires that are twisted to the exterior, to delineate the waist, chest, feet, hands, elbows and head so that the figure starts to become 3 dimensional. Step 3- Screw up newspaper pieces to act as the padding or flesh for the wire skeleton.
Are the legs, arms in the correct position and size in relation to the rest of the body? Using suitable scissors that can afford to be blunt, cut Monroe into manageable strips, soak in water that is in plastic ice cream or yogurt containers, wipe off excess water on the rim of the container, place onto armature in any flat position and importantly, smooth out the Monroe piece with index finger to raise the plaster to the surface and ensure a smooth finish.
This is best done on outside tables if possible as Monroe is a messy medium and the plaster residue has a fine dust that can irritate lungs. Undercoat with white paint, Esso or even a thin layer of plaster if the students have not adequately smoothed the Monroe bandage.
Niki De Saint Phalli favored mosaic as a medium. The students may want to embellish their sculptures with sequins, buttons, plastic mosaic pieces, mirror stickers.
When sculpture is dry, coat thoroughly with Part Non drip Gloss Varnish to enhance color and to preserve. Self evaluation The students completed an appraisal of their work which highlighted the new skills they attained in the unit, their opinion of their work, what they found difficult, what they would change and what they learned about life from Niki De Saint Phalli.
Some sculptures were obviously inspired by her and were, on the wild side with curvy, brightly painted females, a sun god and a praying Buddha whilst other students created realistic looking sportsmen such as a cricketer, a swimmer and a basketball player. Yet we know they are absorbing the stress we are grappling with in our efforts to create the maximum amount of seasonal merriment.
Simplify, tune into the spiritual meaning of the season, treasure family connections, and while you’re at it, work in some yoga and meditation. Brought to you by Mother Nature, it’s as simple as a walk in the woods, an hour in a city park, or a tramp through the snow.
In 1984, Roger Ulrich, in a now classic study, showed that after gall bladder surgery, patients whose hospital rooms had windows with a garden view (as compared to a view of a brick wall) had quicker recovery, needed fewer pain meds, and suffered fewer complications. Such findings have given rise to many “nature therapies.” For example, in Copenhagen, stress-related illness is being treated in a “healing forest garden,” where therapists combine the calming power of greenery with mindfulness training.
In Israel, the “Encounter in Nature Therapeutic Education Program” works in schools for children with special needs. School gardens become a therapeutic milieu where children discover animals and build “homes” out of sticks and other natural materials.
Another nature therapy program in Israel helps build resilience in kindergarten children dealing with war-related stress. In one study, patients suffering from stress-related illnesses described their experiences in a therapeutic “healing garden” as slowing down, taking one thing at a time, giving oneself a break, and in general, attuning to nature’s pace.
However, the same study found that only when office workers could look out the window at an actual nature scene did their heart rates show rapid recovery after low level stress. So, as you bring the greenery of a Christmas tree and wreath inside your house, remember that living evergreens might be just a short walk or drive away.
