The Kiss

porcelain doll and mixed media composition


This is from 1999.  Obviously some examples of odd hybridization here!  The woman and love bird are made of porcelain.  I remember it was quite a trial to engineer this work.  Gravity was not my friend.  This is a joyous expression, its all about sensuality, beauty and the dance...woo hoo!

Below is a photo taken during the progress...its all coming back now...I had to do some interesting scaffolding work to make the leaves appear to be emerging from her palms.
