Emily in 3D
Saturday I finished up my bust for Tatas on Trade. Since I am a painter, not a sculptor, it was tempting for me to totally ignore the back of the piece and just focus on the front. But, as I don't know where she will be exhibited I really wanted the back to be as beautiful as the front. I got the idea to almost tattoo her with a vintage wallpaper pattern, and I absolutely love it! This was an interesting project, partially because I had no idea what it was going to look like until I was finished. Normally I like to have some concept of where I am headed, but this piece was totally spontaneous. As soon as I know where she will be displayed I will let you know.
