Arctic Wolf - Copper
Burning Bright - Creatures of Copper Dreams
This series began with my most recent obsession with copper. Warm amber and bright, it gives way to corrosion. Verdigris - blue, green, a patina as beautiful as the copper itself. Dazzling natural patterns with swirls of bright color, I fell in love with copper. I could envision animals coming out of the patterns, turquoise patina becomes fluid - water, sky. I searched for copper to experiment with but while waiting for it my obsession became too much and I began to create my own copper finishes on various surfaces with paint. I found that aluminum moved like I wanted it to, behaved in a manner consistent with my desire, and so I used it instead of copper. I created the first faux copper art on distressed aluminum, and placed a tiger inside. Thrilled with the results I made more. I hope to continue exploring this medium - this idea until my obsession wanes. I envision bringing forth many animals to play, swim, fly and splash in turquoise worlds inside of glittering copper.
