Artwork Description

This is one of the projects for my advanced painting class. It is acrylics with metallic spray paints, 18k gold leafing, acrylic eyes, and human hair eyelashes. Needless to say this painting broke the bank for me to create it. It is the center piece for a series I am working on and part of my semester finals. It is over 4'x5' in size. (yes.. that's feet).

The idea is based on things not being what they seem-- some people see just a decorative pattern. Other people see faces.

Patterns are things of order, and patterns like the silver papered one here, which is modeled after wallpaper, are considered a luxury sort of item. Clean lines, even spacing. Elegant to the eye. Time consuming to create.

Monsters are chaotic creatures, often bringing to mind carnage and destruction, decay and rot. It can take very little time to destroy things (especially where Godzilla is concerned).

This series of 'Monster Wallpapers', if you will, are a mesh of those opposing ideas. I hope it brings you a sense of mysterious mischief, decadence, and maybe a little uneasiness.

I'm really obsessed with these things, as you can see I took a great deal of time to cut each face from each sheet of paper. I plan on creating tons more.
