GENESIS’ work-in-progress (2018)
MIXED MEDIA: found-object sculptural installation.
Once the composition is finished, I’ll ensure everything is painted one of the many shades of pitch-black, effectively tying all the different aspects together.
Then I’ll buff, burnish and accent till my heart’s content (*hint: it’s never content…)
And using rhinestones to finish it off; adding a little twinkley-sparkle, and then, because I, well, always… will add just a touch more. Because I can’t help myself. And yes, I’m aware of what I am…
Clay relief of Australian Natives finished; just in time for Mother’s Day…
Final touches all applied…finally finished. Just need to seal and varnish. Super satisfying to get something completed in the midst of kiddy chaos!
Finishing work with children…
Now I just have, like, a gagillion little butterflies to stick to the wall and ceiling…why.the.actual.FUCK.do.I.do.this.to.myself?!
Slowly, but surely…building up the collage layers.
I’ve colour-blocked my chosen scheme, now for the tonal addition in coloured pencil and detail work in pen.
It’s coming along nicely; and the piece has a dual nature…this is my last pregnancy (of two) and it’s a cathartic process, allowing me to wave au revoir to my pregnancy days, in a rather whimsical fashion. *big sigh*
What does an artist do with a pregnant belly? Why, cast it of course…now for the design!
Installation all, well…installed.
