A contrast of life and death, funeral and festival.
This work was created as part of “The Fall Of The Majestic Elk” project (http://majesticelk.weebly.com/)
The skull, a found object from a second hand shop in London, was the starting point to the work and was already sprayed gold. In this form it had been a piece of work used by an artist called Piers Wardle who died in Dec 2009. Taking his work and using it a new piece seems a fitting tribute emphasising the themes of death and renewal in the piece.
Relic #21 after Piers Wardle, 2011. (35cm x 60cm x 35cm. Artificial flowers, wire, paint, bone).
