This is an installation style view of an untitled wire and acrylic paint sculpture in fron of Sara #9. The sculpture is about 70" high and fully dimensional.
The relationship between the two is striking- the gestures and colors of the sculpture fold almost seamlessly into the painting, which was something of a surprise to me. as this was not directly planned.
Sara #9 was originally sourced from the observed figure, in this case my friend and frequent model Sara Graves, while the sculpture was my first large scale attempt to build a sculpture as a painting object. (An interview with me on this subject is located at Liquitex.com, who were rather thrilled at the 3-d use of heavy-body acrylic, in large quantities!)
