48" x 60"
acrylic and silver leaf on fiberglass

To create this series I developed a process that involved casting a live model using dental alginate. This alginate mold was filled with liquid plasticine which when dried was used as a base for a 'mother mold' made from silicon and fiberglass - from this mother mold i was able to produce 2-3 highly detailed, dimensional fiberglass paintings which were painted or covered with gold or silver leaf. Even though they hang on the wall they rise beyond the frame, in some places more than 6 inches.

Wow! A live model? It looks like it. But I especially love the little filigrees and branches and veins off the crown of the head. It looks like a statue of a goddess.
