New Plaster Reliefs: Scenes from the Lost Village 1,2,3

Scenes from the Lost Village 1,2,3 October 2010

each tablet is 7.5 X 10.5 in. (20 X 27 cm)
ink, acrylic, and varnish on plaster

These plaster reliefs depict both a frontal view of a decrepit building and the areal view of an architectural dig simultaneously.

I am continually scheming to work in plaster more, so I finally brought out the box of castings I made last year to bring the tablets to fruition. The composition is created by pressing cast-off construction materials into terra cotta clay, then I make a plaster cast. The cast is then painted, carved, and sanded ad nauseum...
