An exhibit at the Getty Villa in 2008 .. This exhibition featured polychrome (multicolored) masterpieces that revealed the many uses of color in figural sculpture over the course of four millennia.
Since antiquity, sculptors have utilized colored materials and applied pigments to give a lifelike quality to their statues. Inlaid eyes create a penetrating gaze and naturalistic complexions animate the face. Color can also help identify the subject of a work. The pigmentation of skin, garments, and accessories often conveys royal or divine status and distinguishes social roles.
I love working with mixed media ... but have an obsession with
photography and documenting my visual experiences. My personal
activities have always involved nature and practices going inward to
embrace a spiritual and intuitive dimension.
