Mummification on the Porch

Mummification on the porch
oil on wood, 14 x 19 cm, 2012

This small painting has been realised having as model a sculpture.

The sculpture (realised in a personal technique combining metal, clay, textile) had in its turn as model a study drawing, created after the live model of a small child.

Developing these multiple phases in diverse techniques– from the drawing studies of the real model, to the painting after the sculptural work — leads to the transformation of the initial subject into a sort of palpable object within the painting.
