So here's what I will be showing at the Fine Art show tomorrow night.
Skulls play a huge part in the history of art, representing mortality of a human being and memento mori, also a subject used by many artists, such as Cezanne and Picasso.
I decided to work on semi-translucent plastic because of its reference to skin. This material is also very fascinating to work on and provides two views of the work from both the front and back of the composition, therefore I hung the pieces on 10 inch nails so that they would stick out from the wall and show off the aesthetic qualities of the material.
