blown glass. pieces of broken glass
With this artwork, I wanted to show my admiration for the beauty of the human face. I think this is the main proof of the divine image and likeness of man. Perhaps visually only the face of a person is able to evoke in us the whole range of the most powerful emotions - pity, contempt, fear, love and even pain. As a puppy who whines in confusion at the sound of music, we are able to clearly feel the real pain from the unspeakable beauty of the human face. Probably, we all somehow remember this vague but unbearably beautiful face of our creator, who on the day of your birth took you out of the darkness of death into the shine of our life. Probably, this beauty is the main reference point, the main stimulus for all of us. No wonder therefore, what feats and what evil deeds for the sake of this beauty people in life are ready to do. This takes you prisoner, makes you his slaves, deprives you of intelligence and gives incredible power. Everyone probably has this marker - for example - Sophie Marceau, Audrey Hepburn, Amy Winehouse or just a girl next door.|
In this my art work, I wanted to show my understanding of such imperious beauty.
So here I used the most beautiful, I think, sculptural material - colored glass. This is done by blowing hot pink glass into a ceramic graphite mold using my author's technology. Then this finished glass sculpture is treated with chemical satin. Boa, which is on the shoulders of the sculpture, is made of pieces of broken glass, glued together with a translucent plastic. This is also done using my author's technology of glass mosaic without the presence of a sculptural basis.
