The Making of Rodin review – the sculptor in a ghostly new light

A succession of plaster arms, legs and heads reveal Rodin’s working practices in a fascinating show that nevertheless leaves you longing for the finished work. The Making of Rodin is a show almost entirely composed of plaster casts: fragile and small, delicate or solid, heavyweight, lifesize or gargantuan. It is thronged with figure groups, solo statues, trays of hands and feet in glass cases. Smooth, chipped, marked up in pencil for rearrangement or enlargement, provisional studies or final casts – they are all uniformly, overpoweringly white.

The Making of Rodin review – not a radical, just a plain old genius

The daylight streams in through Tate Modern’s big windows perfectly illuminating the novelist Balzac. His face is angry and stern, his body swathed in a massive, shapeless gown. This lack of defined form is exactly what horrified Parisians when Rodin’s full-sized plaster model for a monument was unveiled in 1898.

How Rodin found beauty in deformity

Art and science seem chalk and cheese in our own time, but scroll back 150 years and they were enthusiastic bedfellows. Any swish soirée in Vienna or Paris would have included as many neurologists as novelists, and nobody batted an eyelid when, in London in August 1881, specimens relating to a lavish medical congress were exhibited next to the Royal Academy of Art in a temporary “museum”.

3D printing the next Rodin

My personal 3D printer and I, together we’re going to be the next Auguste Rodin. Having spent the past academic quarter taking a course through the personal 3D printer (P3D) program, I’ve mastered the fine art of 3D printing, a skill only a select dedicated few are able to master. Indeed, I once had to spend three whole hours leveling the printing bed of my Creality Ender 3 Pro, so its extruder would not spit out filament mid-air! Having resolved that, though, along with the truly Herculean task of figuring out how to transfer G-code from my laptop to the machine, I, equipped with this revolutionary technology, am truly amongst the ranks of the great sculptors of history.
