Toby Ziegler arrived at his distinctive process of art-making following his graduation from art school as a way of dealing with the disillusionment he felt about being an artist. Using 3-D modeling software, Ziegler takes found images (Flemish Old Master paintings, John Constable's clouds, 16th-century pornography) and translates them into pixels. Then, he works over Inkjet prints of the results by hand with paint or correction fluid, or, more recently, renders them in oil on canvas or aluminum panels. Ziegler's sculptures likewise begin from flat source images redrawn as 3-D models. In The Alienation of Objects (2010), Ziegler used grainy photos of the Iberian head Pablo Picasso famously stole from the Louvre and chiseled away at to remake the sculpture in a Cubist redo, part two. Ziegler has also turned Victorian England's kitsch Staffordshire pottery dogs into towering geometric forms of cardboard and gesso.
