Alright, so I'm ready to revisit the latex sheet idea today...I really want to play on the idea that I already had of the large latex sheet installation, but I want to make it a little more interesting. Take into account this image of human bone under a SEM microscope:
The organic patterns is what I'm currently obsessed with...So I reverted back to cheesecloth...I wanted to incapsulate that with liquid latex.
Artist Leslie Dill, inspired me with her sculptures that look like bone:
I painted 2 layers onto some cling wrap, and then pulled and manipulated a piece of cheesecloth until I got my desired shapes, and painted them into the latex, adding 2 more layers on top. This is the result...amazing....
It's kind of hard to represent this via photography, but to touch it and feel the texture is so satisfying.
*When working with latex, you must sprinkle some corn starch, or baby powder on after it is dry to keep it from sticking to itself.
