It is my goal to create a surreal piece that would captivate and intrigue viewers, drawing them into a world that is both materialistic and spiritual.
The intentional use of Marilyn Monroe's collage serves as an exquisite emphasis on the concept of timeless beauty and the iconic female style that transcends time due to the tragic brevity of her life. The poignant contrast between the ephemeral nature of existence and the enduring impact that Monroe's legacy continues to exert on society is a profound testament to the power of fleeting moments in shaping our lives. This artwork invites contemplation of the human potential for accomplishment within the limited time we are granted in this world. It prompts us to reflect on how quality triumphs over longevity and how success can have a transformative effect on humanity.
The question of our true state of wealth has long been a matter of deep philosophical contemplation for me. Does wealth consist merely of material possessions, or is it perhaps a spiritual state of being? Might it be that true wealth resides somewhere in between these two spheres, and if so, where might we locate the threshold between poverty and affluence? Though the answer to this inquiry may vary according to individual perspectives, we all share in the tangible realities of life. It is within this context that I am delighted to present this collection of meticulously crafted and sculpted canvases and hard materials, including plaster, concrete, and metal adorned with crystalline accents. The addition of carefully curated musical arrangements further enhances the sensory experience of this installation, providing an immersive and transformative artistic journey for the viewer.
The use of stainless steel and crystal inserts, combined with the painted canvas, was a deliberate choice to create a contrast between the natural and the artificial. This interplay between materials adds depth and texture to the sculpture, giving it a unique and mesmerizing quality.
The magenta and purple hues used in the painting process were chosen to emphasize the spiritual and otherworldly nature of the goddess, inviting viewers to contemplate their own connection to the divine.
The addition of the sculptured birds around the goddess further enhances the sense of magic and movement, creating an immersive environment that invites viewers to imagine themselves within the piece.
Finally, the wooden painted base elevates the sculpture from the floor, creating a sense of individuality and importance that is fitting for such a powerful and enchanting work of art.
Overall, I am honored to have created a piece that resonates with so many people and am grateful for the opportunity to share it with the world.
