I'm way too excited about this piece to write a ton. I'm just dying to share the progress. Line and I discussed really working the colors up (she suggested looking at Eva Hesse's early work). I'm going to apply a semi-gloss medium to emphasize the plastic nature of the vejigante mask. Otherwise I think it's nearly complete. More like 70% now. I'm waiting for the next paper bust to dry to get started on the bust version of the Atabeira idea I had early on. It will essentially be the same but just a bust. Here is the box head! Until next time!
This blog functions as a space for me to articulate what goes into making my artwork. As it goes, artists are supposedly notorious for being verbose and confusing writers that often come off as pretentious, pompous asses. That hopefully won't happen here. I intend to be as informal as possible. If you've made it this far I probably don't have to warn you that some of this might be NSFW because nudity is known to literally, and irreversibly, burn corneas.*
