Each bust started with a vintage mannequin head which was then placed on either a metal or glass stand. Next I painted a pattern over their faces. Hair styles were created with rope and twine and then plaster with fabric covers that hair and forms their clothing. The wooden bases were custom made by James English. There’s nods to the Victorian Era, Santos figures, Maori face tattoos, Beauty trends, and Art Deco. Materials: Vintage mannequin, metal, glass, rope, acrylic paint, plaster, fabric, and wood.
