as i mentioned before, i am working on a series of reliquaries/shrines. i just finished the first in this series and definitely need to live with it for awhile. do i want to make reliquaries or go with the idea of miniatures? i will be working on two series simultaneously; one dealing with the golden calf icon, the other with objects left beyond by the deceased. more to come.
golden calf no. 1, found objects, fibers, glitter, wire, glass beads
approximately 14'' high, 7'' wide
hand dyed velvet to be screen-printed with polychromatic printing technique and used for ritualistic garment
the beginning of the same project, originally designed as an accompanying garment to the velvet one, but am beginning to think it could become all one supergarment
material sample to see if i would like to hand paint some of the fabric's wood grain pattern with metallic paint. the two stripes that are a slightly different color are in bronze, the others gold.

new studies

i know it's been quite some time since my last post, but i have been very busy with the end of summer and the start of a new semester. i have already begun to expand on wearables/body installations, and am developing a series of reliquaries/shrines. after more research and material samples, i will share some of that work too.

here are two studies from the past few weeks
