In this provocative creation "What Lies Within," a vintage female mannequin becomes a canvas of vibrancy. Clad in a skintight, kaleidoscopic “jumpsuit”, she emanates a burst of color that transcends conventional boundaries. The intentional openness of her “suit” unveils flames with expressive strokes, symbolizing an inner vitality, passion, and the fiery complexities concealed beneath the surface. This piece explores the correlation between the external allure of vivid hues and the internal inferno, inviting viewers to ponder the layers of identity hidden within. "What Lies Within" is a visual dialogue that celebrates the multifaceted nature of the feminine spirit, encouraging contemplation on the dynamic interplay between the seen and the unseen, the revealed and the concealed.
She was created from a vintage IDW (Lithuania) mannequin and stands 71" tall. I had digitally created photographs of River Arts District graffiti printed on large pieces of fabric. I then cut the fabric into small strips which I applied to her in overlapping and herringbone patterns.
She is currently in my home studio but will be at Foundation Studios soon. If you are interested in purchasing this figurative sculpture piece, please contact me.
If you purchase "What Lies Within" and live in the Asheville area I will deliver and set her up in your home for free. If you live within 200-250 miles of Asheville, I will deliver and set her up for a nominal fee not to exceed $250.
I am also available for commissions; please contact me and we can discuss your project!
