I believe plaster was used in Jones’s artwork because it allowed for him to show emotion and give further meaning to the work. I believe Kwei wood carving was likely due to resources available to him, yet he is able to capture the meaning of life through his work. In these artworks it important to remember the size of each piece as this also conveys further meaning to its form. These types of work are carved and constructed all around giving a bigger purpose to the work. Such as celebrating life and identifying with your heritage. I’ve learned sculpture is created through different processes and their form also gives expressive qualities. I’ve started looking at all artworks differently, and understanding the materials and techniques all contribute to the content.
