Carbon Copy - a paper sculpture

5,760.00

CARBON COPY - paper mache`, wire, plaster and coiled Paper anatomical sculpture. Evolutionary step, I have been dreaming of making larger pieces with my coiled paper and this is the very first study of my abilities in this direction. I chose to duplicate my daughter’s face, maybe because my children are beautiful and I wish to immortalize them as much in my art, as I have in my photography in the past. I am proud of this piece, it was a labor of tedious love and incessant coiling but it is where I want it to be. I made a cast of her face and built the scull out of paper mache` in pieces and incorporated it to the sculpture, the neck and shoulders also were built in pieces out of paper mache` and I added strips of fabric for strength. I stuffed the interior shell with newspaper and sealed it all in. I then proceeded to cover her face with music paper to represent her musicality. I love to give my pieces an intense three dimensionality so I alter the coils to different densities, open and closed coils, manually manipulate them to concave and have randomly added some tightly rolled paper for further tactile feel.

I painted her eyes with acrylic and gave her an amber wash for warmth and covered her face with encaustic for protection.

This lovely piece is showing at the Ballantine Village NewCamp Pop Up Art Gallery in Charlotte
