Girl with Umbrella / by Lucas Novak

This sculpture relates to the Untitled painting I recently completed (see post "Apt Cat" 01/20/15). The girl with an umbrella is an element of that painting, and the metaphor is reinterpreted through this sculpture.

Different from the girl in the painting, the sculpture deliberately has grayish, washed-out color to complement the cracks, chasms, and expression in her face.  

It is 19" x 12" x 12" with acrylic paint, clay, epoxy resin, paper, foam, sand, tape, steel wire, and aluminum armature, wood, 2015.
