My response to these two mechanical objects was to try and juxtapose the technological aspect of the items by creating something organic in nature. After deconstructing the objects I found that the combination of pieces laid out before me lent themselves to an insectoid type creature.

This piece is done in Acrylic on Canvas
Monday, 25 April 2011
The piece is made from cast iron and wieghs around 4 stone and is polished to a rough shine with the scorch marks left in the resess to emphasis the details.
The work is done in acrylic paint on a wooden pallete. The cheapness and industrial aspect of the materials really help to convay the message alongside the painted image of the skull and classicly dressed lady.
The work is an iron cast plate with an embossed sugar skull design, paternated with rust to make the detail more prominant and also to show that like people this work might not last .
